    Exclamation Frustrated! Advise please! CMYK conversion

    I use Photoshop Elements 8 for Mac. I have a logo that I needed to get stickers printed of. They would like the file in CYMK, but Photoshop Elements 8 does not allow you to convert from RGB to CMYK. Does anyone know of a free downloadable software program that will allow me to convert to CMYK?

    I would try GIMP, which you should have anyway: GIMP - The GNU Image Manipulation Program

    Or ImageMagick, which I haven't used, but people have recommended it specifically for CMYK conversion: www.imagemagick.org

    Don't bother with Gimp, it doesn't do CMYK. Talk to the printers. they should be able to convert it for you, for a price of course. CMYK is not a common color format, it is usually used in professional printing.

    Here is a little information on doing the conversion yourself if you have one of the listed tools. RGB to CMYK Conversion for Printing

    Also take a look at this. Convert rgb to cmyk: freeware downloads
