  • Greyscale to RGB

    I have found a way of turning a greyscale in to RGB. There is probably a proper way to do it, but this works for me.

    Open a blank page. FILE > NEW > RGB > choose the appropriate dpi and height x width. Drag and drop your greyscale image and you now have a photo that be coloured or sepia toned.

      Apart from Photoshop, do you know if any program can convert pictures from RGB to CMYK?

      Color mode conversion - help requested
      by Berni
      There is an effect I don´t understand. For calibration purposes I got a sample picture as file (see attachement) and a print of the same picture.

      The first thing is, that the "base colors" red, green, blue, cyan, magenta and yellow are much too bright. I had no chance to adjust...
