What is CMYK?

Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Key (CMYK) is the color profile that is used in the printing process. Printing machines use tiny dots of ink to create images with these four colors. Key is used to represent the color black in CMYK.

More About CMYK

Cyan, magenta, yellow, and black are the primary colors of pigment. The combination of the CMYK colors will result in black. On the other hand, the RGB (Red, Green, and Blue) color scheme refers to the primary colors of light. The combination of these colors creates white.

While CMYK is used for printing, RGB is used for digital screens and monitors. If you create something in RGB for print, the colors will likely look different. This is because you need to convert it to CMYK. Most design programs can help you do this. You can also find an online tool to do it for you.
