CMYK to NCS Converter

CMYK to NCS conversion is an opposite (and in fact a bit more complex) action to the convertion tool that we recently made available here on this page. It is essential to understand, that NCS color collection is easily depleted by the overwhelming amount of different CMYK colors that could be constructed using CMYK process. And while most of NCS colours could be expressed in CMYK components, unfortunately we cannot pair every single variation of CMYK color values to a different NCS color swatch.
This means, that in some cases several CMYK colors will be pointed to the same NCS color. But this doesn’t mean, that we can’t attempt and succeed to obtain workable specimen when attempting CMYK to NCS conversion. In fact, the algorithm implemented here is specifically designed to pick the best matching NCS color for any given CMYK color value.
You can take advantage from this by filling each input field with your desired CMYK color and clicking the conversion button below. The resulting color will appear on your screen in a jiffy along with a corresponding NCS color code.

NCS Color value: S 2040-R (See details)

Important: This input form requires you to provide CMYK values in percentage from 0 to 100% for each color (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Black). In case you have your CMYK colors expressed in decimal numbers, make sure to multiply each decimal value by 100 to get acceptable values.

This is a simple and easy to use color converter tool that converts CMYK colors to the best matching NCS colors. For each entered CMYK color, the corresponding NCS color will be determined.
