CMYK (which stands for Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Key) is a color code that is normally used by graphic designers that want to print their created logos, banners, flyers or other graphic elements on inked paper. RGB (Red, Green and Blue) is the color code used when creating web graphics, as it is the color spectrum used by monitors for emitting light. Therefore, having a tool that will help you quickly switch between these two color codes can prove to be quite useful for every graphic designer out there.
