We’ve all seen this box, and when you’re new to photoshop, it’s quite confusing.

Right now, I am going to focus on two areas of Color Mode, RGB and CMYK.  In an nutshell, RGB is the generally used for on screen, and CMYK for print.

RGB makes all your colors  from the three primary colors, Red, Green and Blue.  CMYK is similar, in that all the colors are made of Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black.  When starting a new document, have a think.  Is this for web, or for print, then decide which color mode is most appropriate.
