Photoshop Tip: Set Print Design Work to CMYK

Posted on: February 11th, 2009 by Ben Bishop No Comments

Applies to Windows XP / Vista.

Just a quick tip. I have just designed my new business cards and needed to ensure that the artwork was correctly set to the CMYK colour space needed by my printers.

There are two areas you need to check, ideally before you complete your work else there is probably gonna be some colour correction required.

  1. ‘Edit’ -> ‘Color Settings’ and ensure your working spaces and color management settings are setup correctly. If you are not sure about this, contact your printers.
  2. ‘Image’ -> ‘Mode’ ->’CMYK Color’.

Easy eh?
