    How to change K in a raster object

    Chrome had an update today. It seems to have sped some things up (I think) but for the most part, I'm still having to click into another tab and come back, for the page to load.

    Deceiving Pitstop Inspector

    Recently, I had a huge run of posters come in with supplied art. I ran it through Pitstop Inspector as usual, which told me the colors were CMYK. I also opened it in Illy which said CMYK mode. SO I hit print. It printed horribly and I knew right away that it was RGB. I opened it in Photoshop and...
