Check your piece in greyscale

Is the piece clear when it’s black-and-white? Our eye doesn’t see color first, it sees value first. Get the value right, and the colors will fall into place better.

To check your piece in greyscale in Photoshop, do this:

  1. Go to View > Proof Setup > Custom…
  2. Select “Working Gray – Dot Gain 20%”
  3. Press Ctrl + Y on Windows, Cmd + Y on macOS to toggle greyscale (or go to  View > Proof Colors)
