Converting RGB to CMYK...how to cheat the Gamut?
Well... Im screwed.
Been working on an assignment in RGB so that I could use all my favorite color filters, etc. that are not available in CMYK mode. Now Im converting the final files from RGB to CMYK and everything is wayyyy off. Ive done this before without much of an issue but these images are very saturated and therefore caused me this headache....
Anyone have an idea of how to work around this to retain my original or close to original colors?
Also, cant share the images due to NDA...
Any help very appreciated. These are due tomorrow!
durp-a-durp....new lesson learned.

Thanks for the tif suggestion. Ive tried this before with good results but it doesnt seem to be working this time around.
I am not sure what type of CMYK I am out putting to...? I am working in 8 bits/channel and adjust the mode from RGB to CMYK in the PS menu bar. Is there another way of adjusting to different types of CMYK?

By changing the mode to CMYK will convert the image into your current working CMYK which is set in color settings. Other way is to use Convert to profile -command where you can choose and preview the desired profile. You can ask the right profile from the press office.
You can use soft proofing to help adjusting the image into CMYK gamut. You have to adjust the RGB image into it. You can use like HSL-layer in problem colors and preview the adjustment with soft proofing and using gamut warning. It's the fact that you can not fit all your saturated RGB colors into CMYK but this way you can control it more.
Hope this helps for the future..
