- Okay, so we've managed to reduce the number of colors…in our artwork to just three inside the CMYK mode.…The problem is, CMYK is a kind of a dead end, intended for…old-school commercial reproduction, and nothing more.…And as time marches on, and our options…for promoting our designs expand,…I've become increasingly convinced…that you want to stick with RGB as long as possible.…Even in Illustrator, and even when…creating print documents, which is what we have here.…And the reason is, that RGB…is more flexible in the long haul.…
RGB better accommodates inkjet printing, than does CMYK.…RGB will allow us to adapt our logo…to back-lit and screen environments,…as we'll do in future chapters.…And RGB does a better job…of displaying spot colors onscreen.…And finally, and this is a big one,…RGB supports spot colors just as well as CMYK does.…So in this movie, I'm gonna show you…how to streamline your inks from six to three in RGB.…For starters, I'm gonna switch back to that RGB document…that we saw at the beginning of the previous movie.…
