Photos in Black and white

If your images are black and white - or in greyscale - we recommend converting them to a CMYK colorspaces we use (Coated GRACOL 2006) or leaving them in greyscale. Please note that many people find that the greyscale preview lacks contrast, so be prepared for this, and adjust your levels or brightness and contrast until you are satisfied with the preview.

Working in CMYK will produce a richer print but you may find your black/greys are slightly tinted so you will need to adjust the color levels as necessary. Where possible, always preview in CMYK to give a more realistic view of the final outcome.
