RGB to CMYK Converter needed

 4:02 pm on May 27, 2009 (gmt 0)

I usually design only for the web with Fireworks CS4 and GIMP. But every once in a while I need something printed, for example flyers in small quantities.

There are lots of print webshops where you can upload your files and then can get 100 or 200 flyers reletively cheap. The downside is that the files already have to be prepared for printing. That usually means a PDF in the right size and of course in CMYK.

I can do all thats necessary however I can only produce RGB files with the software I have. And to buy Photoshop only for converting the RGB files to CMYK would be overkill. Because I would have no other use for the programm and would need it only three or four times a year.

So I am looking for another solution for the RGB to CMYK conversion. The color matching wouldn't need to be perfect either.

I tried imagemagic - which is free but can't get it to work, a little to complicated for my liking. I also tried a software called Real PDF Printer which works fine regarding the CMYK conversion - however it can't create borderless files which I would need for printing.

Does anybody know a solution or software for Windows? The price limit would be about 100 Euro.

Ok. Found something myself. There is a CMYK plugin for Gimp.


The english installaton and how to use instruction is included in the .zip file. Can only convert to .tif, though.
