To create a custom CMYK profile:

1 Do one of the following:

• In Windows and Mac OS 9.x, choose Edit > Color Settings.

• In Mac OS X, choose Photoshop > Color Settings.

2 Under Working Spaces, choose Custom CMYK from the CMYK menu.

3 For Name, enter a new name for the custom profile if desired. However, because the default name automatically reflects changes that you make to the Custom CMYK settings, it is recommended that you accept the default name.

4 For Ink Colors, choose an ink type. (See "Specifying ink colors" on page 122.)

5 For Dot Gain, specify a value. (See "Specifying dot gain" on page 123.)

6 Specify separation options. (See "Adjusting the separation type and black generation" on page 124.)

7 Click OK.

8 Save the custom profile. (See "Saving and loading working space profiles" on page 119.)
