I sort of missed out on this discussion, was away for a week

But what I would appreciate is the ability to convert my image to CMYK,
so that when I give it to the "friendly print man" he will be able to
use it without moaning about this and that and then me standing next to
him trying to figure this CMYK stuff out while he is doing the
conversion on his pc or mac.
Black especially seems to be a big problem for the print shop (something
to do with the last print plate, but when you convert black RGB to CMYK,
you get the black part on all four the plates, that is the CMY and K

If I am totally wrong here, then please just ignore my message :-)
Thanks a lot
