CMYK or RGB? – It’s Best if you do the RGB-to-CMYK conversion of your images!

CMYK will look more accurate on your monitor to what your prints will look like.  All printers print in CMYK colors.  Montiors display colors in RGB and some of those colors are not possible to print.  Therefore, all RGB colors will get converted to CMYK during the printing process.  Example:  a bright bright red showing on your monitor in RGB might not look as bright in the finished print after it has been converted to CMYK.  So if you want to see closer to what your prints will look like on your monitor, convert the RGB color space to CMYK first.  If you are really picky about colors, always run a physical proof first before running the job.
