AuthorSubject: Bluish cast in CMYK conversion   [Go to Bottom of Page]
Sergio Bartelsman
Posted on Wed Aug 13, 2003 5:11 PM

When I change the mode from RGB to CMYK my files result in some out of gamut color clipping as expected. I see a consistent cyanotic cast especially in the shadows after the conversion. I have tried different rendering intents (rel.col & perceptual) and it is more or less the same in the majority of my images. I have been having a hard time getting rid of the bluish tint using brushes and other tools. Is there an easier way to get rid of this shift in color after conversion? It prints horrible.
My last conversion settings were SWOP/18% dot gain/GCR/light black gen/340 total ink limit in case I am doing something wrong here (this a hard topic to grasp).
Thank you very much.

Sergio
