Process and solid colors are used in print production. Learn about why, when, and where they are used.
- [Instructor] As designers the largest range…of achievable colors we have to work with is the RGB model…and we refer to the achievable range as a gamut.…What you're looking at here is a very rough approximation…of the map of colors that human eyes could perceive.…And of those colors, the generic RGB range…is roughly about this much.…And that's what we can achieve with our…current technology and components.…
Now you might remember from the previous movie…that RGB is based on energy,…and that CMYK is almost completely opposite…as it's actually subtracting light…from the paper as it's reflected to your eyes.…So that gamut is even smaller…than the RGB spectrum…and when we're using those super bright colors…in our projects they are maybe going to work just fine…for the digital world, but in the CMYK process…all of that nice bright red, super jazzy green,…and several other colors of the RGB model…can't be achieved using CMYK at all.…
The image you're looking at now, the word…and the bar at the bottom, are RGB.…The top-most bar is an approximation…
