Canvas background is darker for CMYK compared to RGB

Recommended Posts

The canvas and artboard background color is significantly darker for documents in CMYK mode, compared to RGB. Considering the canvas is part of the UI, I think they should remain consistent regardless of the document color mode. Is this a bug?

Hi Noob


I'm getting pretty much the same values for both RGB and CMYK document backgrounds. Artboard backgrounds have a slight difference of 3 (eg 226 instead of 229). Are you using a particular monitor profile. The difference could be the conversion from the internal document profile to the monitor profile
