DCS® Books: Professional Edition & Mini Editions
Eliminate trial-and-error CMYK color matches The difference in appearance of color when viewed in different color spaces represents one of the greatest problems in prepress. Do not be misled by the RGB colors on your
monitor when you are really trying to achieve CMYK on paper. The Digital Color Scale Books (DCS) show you in advance how the ink-on-paper will look. Tens of thousands of color combinations are available. The basic combination on all pages is the mixing of cyan and magenta, with yellow and black overprinted. The chromatic organization of the DCS is in ascending percentages of yellow.
