Convert from CMYK to RGB

Short explanation

.

Three color values for red, green, and blue are determined from the four CMYK values for cyan, magenta, yellow, and black, and converted to the following notation: rgb (red, green, blue).

When we convert the color red, it consists of 0% cyan, 100% magenta, 100% yellow, and 0% black. The CMYK notation is then as follows: cmyk (0%, 100%, 100%, 0%).

These color values are then converted to an RGB value. This gives the color value in RGB notation as rgb (255, 0, 0). There is always a loss of color accuracy to be expected when converting from CMYK to any other color format.

Calculation example

.

We will describe a conversion from cmyk to rgb using the color alice blue as an example.

The starting value is the color in CMYK format:

CMYK = cmyk (6%, 3%, 0%, 0%)

These values are divided among the respective colors cyan, magenta, yellow, and black:

cyan = 6

Magenta = 3

yellow = 0

black = 0

These color values must now be converted from the CMYK color system to the decimal system of RGB. Since the colors do not match directly, the conversion is not so easy. The color values are determined with certain formulas.

Red = 255 * ((1 - Cyan / 100) * (1 - Black / 100))
Green = 255 * ((1 - Magenta / 100) * (1 - Black / 100))
Blue = 255 * ((1 - Yellow / 100) * (1 - Black / 100))

In our example, this means that at the beginning we have to calculate the value for red from cyan and black. Then we calculate the value for green from magenta and black. After that, we calculate the value for blue from yellow and black. This results in the following calculations:

red = 255 * ((1 - 6 / 100) * (1 - 0 / 100))
red = 240

green = 255 * ((1 - 3 / 100) * (1 - 0 / 100))
green = 247

blue = 255 * ((1 - 0 / 100) * (1 - 0 / 100))
blue = 255

To get the result of our calculation, we now need to convert the calculated decimal values to the RGB notation rgb (red, green, blue):

RGB = rgb (240, 247, 255)

CMYK color profile

Short description

CMYK is primarily used for four-color printing. It constructs color from the combination of cyan, magenta, yellow, and the black component.

It uses the value from 0 to 100 respectively, indicating the intensity of each color. In the CMYK color model, there is a special feature. The more color used, the darker the overall color. CMYK is always specified with four color values, each of which can range from 0% to 100%.

There are over 4 trillion CMYK colors, but not all of them can be represented.

Use

The CMYK color system is used for printing and for image or photo editing. It is available for selection in almost all image editing programs and should be selected as the default color system when working with printers. This will give you the most accurate print result possible.

RGB color space

Short description

RGB stands for the three colors red, green and blue. Each of the colors can have the value from 0 to 255. Therefore, there are 16,777,216 possible RBG colors.

Use

The RGB color system is one of the most common systems for web applications and image or photo editing. It is used in the creation and design of web pages and can be found in most image editing programs.
