Two main color models used in design RGB and CMYK, and it’s important to know which to use and for what purpose.
RGB stands for red green and blue. Its usually used to be displayed on a television or screen such as web-pages or videos. Most likely made up of millions of pixels each pixel is broken down into three sub-pixels.
That is either red green or blue these subpixels are added in various combinations to make an array of different colors. Let assume pixel for instance if the red and green subpixels are turned on all the way the resulting pixel would be yellow.
Or if the red pixel was dim, and the blue pixel was on all the way the resulting color would be purple. All three sub-pixels added together to create white which is why RGB is known as the additive color model.
On the other hand, CMYK Is a subtractive color model and creates white by subtracting colors.CMYK stands for Cyan, magenta, yellow and key. Which is blank and should use for anything that is print with ink CMYK works.
By starting with a lighter page usually white and then layering each color together until the final image has produced this image is made up of tiny dots of either cyan magenta yellow or black. The more significant the dot, the more that color represented and the more shades of overlap the darker the section of the image will be in addition to CMYK printing.
Also, print with Pantone colors these are individually colored inks, and there is a more accurate way of achieving the desired color that CMYK cannot correctly represent Pantone colors can also include metallic inks that CMYK cannot produce when designing for printmaking.
Sure you set up the artwork in CMYK and Don’t simply convert it later on and also, keep in mind that you are viewing the CMYK file on an RGB screen and the final product might very remote your
