AuthorSubject: RGB>CMYK>RGB???   [Go to Bottom of Page]

I was wondering about this as an option for workflow...

I've got a job with a very short lead time. I'll be shooting and they'll be going to press about at the same time.

I’m shooting with a 1ds and their printer has been a bit unclear about their color management processes (no profiles, no calibration).

I was thinking that one way to proceed might be for me to work up the final image in RGB, then save that out and convert a copy to CMYK, and then do any additional work. I will then make my “proof” using a 2200, Matchprint paper (I’ve profiled with i1), and the IP rip using SWOP as a best guess for a profile.

Here comes the strange part, then I’d switch back the file to RGB. It seemed like the printer got a little huffy about their procedures it terms of submitting a CMYK to them. It might make things flow better to give them RGB.

I figure the big change happens you go to CMYK, I don’t know it going back will damage things.

Does this seem okay?

Thanks

(BTW: I’ve gotten a great education by being on line with IR, I've really appreciated everyone’s knowledge and patience)
