Previewing Objects in CMYK

If you are going to print your document, you can preview how your output will look by using the CMYK soft preview. This feature will alter the colors in your document to show how they will look when printed. The colors outside the CMYK gamut will be adjusted to the nearest possible CMYK color value.

To preview the colors in CMYK mode, from the View menu, select Soft Proof.

If objects in your document and the swatch table appear "washed out," it may be because Soft Proof is on.

Soft Proof is Off.

Soft Proof is On.

To accurately preview the colors, set up the correct Color Profiles and Rendering Intents that will be used in printing. (See Configuring the System for Color Printing for more information.)
