RGB to CMYK conversion formula and chart



The R,G,B values are divided by 255 to change the range from 0..255 to 0..1:

R' = R/255

G' = G/255

B' = B/255


The black key (K) color is calculated from the red (R'), green (G') and blue (B') colors:


K = 1-max(R', G', B')


The cyan color (C) is calculated from the red (R') and black (K) colors:


C = (1-R'-K) / (1-K)


The magenta color (M) is calculated from the green (G') and black (K) colors:


M = (1-G'-K) / (1-K)


The yellow color (Y) is calculated from the blue (B') and black (K) colors:


Y = (1-B'-K) / (1-K)
