HEX to CMYK Conversion
This HEX to CMYK converter utilizes complex mathematical formulas to obtain best results in approximations for additive color (HEX or RGB) conversion to subtractive color (CMYK) conversion.
There is a key difference between HEX color and CMYK color. That difference is the way each color is formed and coded. Additive color (HEX) is a property of light that means it can be seen when the light is added together. Subtractive color (CMYK) is a property of light that means it can be seen when the light is subtracted from an object.
The HEX (which is basically RGB) or Red, Green, Blue model is additive because it’s based on adding different amounts of red, green and blue to produce all other colors. The CMYK or Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black model is subtractive because adding these colors together produces black. This creates a coherent boundary, but this conversion tool is designed to overcome overcome this problem and effectively translate any HEX color code (hexadecimal combination) to adequate CMYK color presets.
