Color Space Question
on Apr 5, 2005 at 2:14:28 pm

I understand the differences in RGB vs CMYK, and additive vs subtractive colors, but the question we have not been able to answer is why printers chose C, M, Y & K? Why not Red, Blue, & Yellow, like painting? Can anyone point me to a FAQ or a short history? Thanks.
