    Painter 8 RGB>CMYK?

    As a long time PS user, I'm used to being able to determine RGB>CMYK mixes for black density etc., and seeing those accurately (reasonably) on screen.

    Painter 8 simply has "Generic CMYK Profiles" for the "Professional" setup... how do I know what I'm getting, and how do I adjust it to my preferences?

    Also, Photoshop has an out of gamut warning box that lets you select a color that will print properly... is there anything like this in Painter? If not, how do you avoid painting something that will not print?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Hi unseen_life,

    You may wish to read the first two posts here.

    Read the 'Of Dragons and Pattability' section of Klaus Nordby's Painter 8 review here.

    And download a CMYK compatible color set for Painter, by Tim Jessell from here.
