    How to restore the original color from an incorrect CMYK-RGB conversion?

    asphaltmania

      Hi all,

       

      This problem has been bugging me on and off for more than 10 years (I should've asked earlier I know).

       

      This occurs when someone opens a CMYK image with a software that does not support CMYK color space (for example, older versions of ACDSee), and saves the image into RGB. It will result in a strange color cast. (like the image below in the top)

       

      My question is how do you restore the original, correct color (the bottom image)? I have tried with complex curve adjustment with close result, but i'm wondering if there is some curve that is "standard" and can be quickly applied to this kind of images.

       

      thanks in advance!
