RGB–who?

RGB, red, green and blue. You don’t think you care but you do. These three colors make up all the colors and images you see on a screen, be it a computer screen, TV screen, DVD player, etc. It is a combination of tiny dots (pixels) that when placed next to each other, your eyes perceive as a color or shade. That’s all good and fine you say, but Lisa, why, why do I care? You care because RGB images are for electronic devices, screens, it is not for print. By print, I mean a commercial printer, your desktop printer or office copier/printer does not care, it will print your RGB image, it will forgive you. Your print professional, however, not so much. For now remember: Red, green, blue only on screen for you.
