    Why does changing between CMYK -> RGB alter the colour palette?

    !!thomen!!

      Hi All,

      we were given a cmyk based web mockup and i wanted to convert to rgb to get a truer representation of the colours on screen.

       

      It raised a long unanswered question in my head so i thought I should finally ask it!

       

      why when changing colour modes from cmyk->rgb or rgb->cmyk does the colour palette of the file that's open change..

       

      ie the background in blue is a slightly different blue when i change from cmyk to rgb.. i was wondering why that is and is there any way to prevent that change..

       

      Thanks!

      Tom
