CMYK colours looking like RGB colours

    Hi everyone,

    I'm having trouble with colour tranfer between RGB and CMYK. I've
    tranferred several very colourful digital images from RGB>CMYK, but
    when I view them in other applications (such as ACDSee and when I put
    them into HMTL files for a website), the colour seems to revert to RGB
    colours. Yet when I look at the same file in Phtoshop, the colours are
    the CMYK colours.

    I'm confused! Can anyone help?

    PS uses color management, and your other programs don't. The "transfer"
    (ie, color space conversion) is probably working just fine, it's just that
    your other programs only "see" files in an untagged RGB colorspace that is
    *fairly* close to sRGB.
