This question already has an answer here:

By color setting in QGIS, I can only set RGB color but not CMY, so I've taken the cmy color from FreeHand, converted to RGB in Adobe Photoshop. Then exported the map as PDF (in QGIS). Before printing this PDF, I've controlled the color using of Adobe Photoshop, it shows me wrong cmy. Is this the problem with a printer or it is possible to get correct cmy or rgb color before print?

  • Which 'Mode' and 'Bit Depth' do you use while opening PDF in Photoshop? – Kadir Şahbaz Apr 12 '18 at 13:10
  • @KadirŞahbaz Merhaba, 'Mode':RGB, 'Bit Depth': 8 bit – ndr Apr 12 '18 at 14:01
  • I guess it's not about QGIS and after opening PDF in Photoshop, changing image mode to 'CMYK Color' (Image > Mode > CMYK color) will fix CMYK values, but will naturally change RGB values. – Kadir Şahbaz Apr 12 '18 at 14:28
  • @KadirŞahbaz So then how I will print my map with correct RGB color? because the color after printing(was actually already converted from cmy to rgb) shows me different. The problem is not the Photoshop i think personally. i just wanted to print my map in cmyk, or in correct rgb color. – ndr Apr 12 '18 at 14:38
  • What do you mean with "Print", exporting map to PDF or printing PDF on a paper? – Kadir Şahbaz Apr 12 '18 at 14:45
