OK, I'm using an extemely old free graphics program to edit pictures for our catalog. Then the pictures get sent to the printing people (outside vendor) to get printed. I'm starting to get an education on cmyk format. Obviously my old picture editing program doesn't output in cmyk. My printer wants cmyk. Any help here? Free programs to convert images into cmyk 'mode'? Tricks someone has used in this situation before? Are my colors going to be screwed no matter what since I didn't do editing in photoshop in cmyk to start with?
Help out a cadd guy here please.
