What is the reason for you to have to work in CMYK?

Is there any reason that you cannot work in RGB first to edit the image to your satisfaction then do the conversion to the required flavour of CMYK for a particular device?

This will always happen. The RGB channels have more definition than the CMY channels of a CMYK image. The K or Black Channel will often have more detail than the other three channels in a CMYK image.

What matters most is how the composite CMYK image looks compared to the RGB original.

Re: RGB to CMYK Conversion HELP :-(

Thanx tony & shoku for ur reply....

My only concern in why the CMY channel become patchy, whn i didnt the dpi of image.

Well im wrking in ad agency(last 10yrs) in india and according the printing standard we have to wrk in cmyk mode. so im use to work in cmyk mode. i hvnt seen this kind of problem.

We got the images from photographers & stock images site. these are also in RGB mode. when i convert those images in CMYK mode, CYM wont look patchy all. ya ths true black hv more detail compare to CMY channel...

Anyway thanks to tony & shoku to share ur concern with
me.

take care
Lalit
