Hey guys, I need an help.

Unfortunately, while I was creating a new work, I noticed that I was working in RGB mode, but I needed to work in CMYK. So now, if I convert to CMYK the colors, obviously, get worse and they lost all the “vivid” effect. :S

How can I keep the colors vivid and “brilliant” as they were in the RGB mode? I’m aware that the amount of colors in CMYK is much reduced compared to RGB but there’s no method?? I’ve tried a lot of things, but for the moment I can not do much :(

Help me please, Thanks in advance guys.

Open psd file, click Image options and changes 8 bit to 16 or 32bit then change RGB to CMYK, It will work :)

Guys, did you read what author said? He knows how to convert a file, it’s just a color range problem.

I might be wrong here, but there’s not much you can do about it. You could play with Pantone colors, but I won’t help you here much. It’s still narrower range of colors than RGB, but far more than CMYK.

Era89, flatten all layers before converting to CMYK. This will save a good number of the vividness and vibrance because RBG to CMYK and vice versa conversion works better with a single layer. Mulitple layers will result to off colors. After the conversion, use some adjustment filters to boost up certain range of color strength/vividness.

There’s no workaround, other than what mrcharlesbrown mentioned, short of manually adjusting the colours once the colour-profile was set to CMYK. Also, under the same umbrella, there’s the lovely banding issues that sometimes tend to appear once you go through with a conversion… I know this doesn’t help, but in the future, you should check the colour profile before you start any actual or major work, so that everything fits… I’ve had this all too often, so I’m not playing the teacher here :D just writing this in the hopes that I myself will remember to do it in the future…
