  • CMYKColor[c,m,y] is equivalent to CMYKColor[c,m,y,0].
  • CMYKColor specifications are automatically converted to RGBColor when simulated lighting calculations are done. »
  • ColorConvert can be used to convert CMYKColor to other color spaces.
  • The alternative forms CMYKColor[{c,m,y,k}] and CMYKColor[{c,m,y,k,a}] can also be used.
  • Style[expr,CMYKColor[]] specifies that expr should be displayed with the specified color. »
  • For 3D surfaces, explicit CMYKColor directives define surface colors; the final shading depends on lighting and contributions from specularity and glow. »
  • Glow[CMYKColor[]] specifies color independent of lighting. »
  • CMYKColor[c,m,y,k,a] is equivalent to Directive[CMYKColor[c,m,y,k],Opacity[a]]. »
  • If no opacity has been specified, CMYKColor[c,m,y,k] is equivalent to CMYKColor[c,m,y,k,1].
