Most of the bruises acquired in the fight to learn color management for my RGB images, monitor, printer, softproofing, etc, have begun to heal. All of a sudden, I need to submit some images on a CD, with possible printing in a photography magazine that prints high quality on glossy (slick?) paper. The images need to be CYMK rather than RGB.
Am I correct in assuming the process would be similar to softproofing for my printer, as follows:
1) Bring up an image in RGB.
2) Set up a custom color proofing dialogue with the CYMK Swop 2 profile, without Simulate PaperColor or Simulate Black Point checked, but with BPC on?
3) Duplicate the original image, then try to tweak the softproofed one to look as much like the original as possible.
1) bring up an image in RGB.
2) duplicate the image and convert it to CYMK
3) Tweak it to look as close to the RGB as possible, and then save it with the tweaked layers flattened?
Will I be able to see out of gamut colors in either of these setups? Or am I grossly oversimplifying the process, and need to start from the zero point on the learning curve?
