We’ll start this Photoshop tutorial by learning about the RGB and CMYK color models, which is something every designer must understand. From here, we will begin learning about several topics that are specific to preparing jobs for commercial printing. First, we will spend a little bit of time learning about the difference between screen resolution and print resolution. Next, we’ll move on and learn about topics like sport color and process color, the appearance of black, separating artwork for both process and spot printing and how we can manage our ICC color profiles. We’ll wrap up this course by learning how to prepare a press ready PDF in Photoshop. After completing this tutorial, you will have a good understanding of the concepts, tools and techniques used to prepare print ready documents in Adobe Photoshop.
