    • 13. Image file types
      • Should I use CMYK, RGB or grayscale images?
      • Depending on which type of binding you choose for your book, there are different ways to optimize your document for print.
        • For all black and white books (except comic size) , the source document and images should be in grayscale mode.
        • For full color books , the source document and/or images should be in the original colorspace. If it was created in RGB, DO NOT convert to CMYK and vice versa.
          • If your full color book contains black and white images, set each black and white image to grayscale.
