I’m making a business card in photoshop, and I downloaded the template that the graphic river guys made for us. I noticed there is a * beside the 8 (meaning 8 bit) on the files title bar. Also when I copy something out from the file to another file, the colors look a bit different, even though the other one is also cmyk. Anyone know what’s causing this? Cheers ! !
Does the star not mean that it is unsaved?
The Question is: »What type of CMYK ?«
In the U.S. they print with a differnt CMYK -Profile as in Asia, Europe and so on. But that‘s not all. There a special CMYK Profiles for different printing techniques like Offset, gravure print, newspaper printing and even for coated or uncoated paper. All of them have a specific profile wich fits best to its printing technique or paper. So look at the colorprofiles of the two items .
@Lung – Yeah that might be it, I’ll see if I can find the color information for the file.
@quickandeasy – Nah, it’s a different star, beside the file info that’s in brackets, on the file name bar. (cmyk/8*)
Right now however, it’s an important time that we have here in Britain, it’s called Dinner Time!
You may have to alter the color profile, as potentially, it includes the color profile of the computer it was created on
I’ve looked at the color profile and it looks fine, although I don’t know anything much about cmyk profiles. I’ll assume it’s fine to submit, since it’s the graphic river business card template after all, and must have been made with maximum awesomeness
