YRGBK 3 Quick Start Guide
YRGBK3 converts full color images into multichannel color separations for screen printing on light and dark substrates. YRGBK creates Simulated Process colors, using a specific set of 7 color channels, plus White and Black, to reproduce a full color image. The settings are fully customizable, and can be saved to create custom separation profiles.
