RP LIVE "CMYK for Retouchers" (rebroadcast)
On our next RetouchPRO LIVE rebroadcast, color guru Andrew Rodney demonstrates and explains working with CMYK with a special emphasis on the needs of retouchers and photographers. Andrew's slides and notes will be downloadable after the show.

From Andrew:
"CMYK has been called the Devils colorspace. After all, God created RGB and man created CMYK, which would you rather use? For many, the options are not clear cut. Do we and should we send CMYK to our clients? What are the potential pitfalls? In this seminar, I'll cover what are best practices for making the best possible CMYK conversions and discuss what to do when you simply can't follow these procedures.

This event will be another color geek fest but this one might save your bacon if you have clients expecting you to deal with CMYK reproduction!"

Wednesday, April 13, 6am or 2pm CDT (see link below for other time zones)

Re: RP LIVE "CMYK for Retouchers" (rebroadcast)
Some areas covered will be:
  • What's a contract proof, what to aim for in conversions, why you wouldn't necessarily profile the press.
  • Black generation, TAC and CMYK target values. Learn the lingo, communicate with the printing house.
  • What really is SWOP, GRACOL and other standard print conditions. Can they be the solution?
  • When and when not to send RGB to the printer and why photographers might do their own Seps.
  • Using a desktop printer (Epson) to make loose color proofs for a CMYK process.
  • Using the the "Custom Proof Setup" dialog to preview CMYK press output
  • Absolute versus Relative versus Perceptual rendering intents, when to use what
  • better "proofs" from inkjet printers/using the print options box
  • "how do I convert and prepare CMYK files for clients when they have virtually no specific press information"

I suspect my attempt at clarity actually confused everyone. It's really "CMYK for RGB Users", not necessarily just retouchers.
