I have a complex pattern, that looks brilliant with a color layer. However, it was originally created RGB.
I converted the color to CMYK for print, and all the color disappears! Not that the layer is deleted, but the color layer appears Grayscale. The only area where color shows up are in the pieces that are at 50% transparency (see purple diamond). I have all my color areas set to CMYK including the color pallet.
The color will show if I set the layer to multiply, but it doesn't look the same way as it does when its in RGB mode.
I've never come across this before, any help would be greatly appreciated! THANKS!
Object > Rasterize with the required print resolution and then convert to CMYK.
Different blending modes give different results in the RGB and CMYK color spaces and they have to be redone for each if they have to remain as vector objects.
Well, as I mentioned initially, you can redo it, by referring to the RGB and assign new colors and different degrees of opacities so that they are as close as possible to the RGB.
Just curious, what happens if you place (File > Place ) the RGB file into a new CMYK document, is it still grayscale?
