During this workshop we learnt about Colour Spaces, the differences between RGB & CMYK, enlarging files and Sharpening in PhotoShop.

This is the original image I worked with during this workshop.

I then used the Proof Colours tool to preview what my image would look like in CMYK.

This is what the image would look like in CMYK as apposed to RGB.

I then used the Unsharp Mask filter in Photoshop to increase the contrast between edges in the image.

Next, I created a new layer via copy.

I then used the High Pass Sharpening feature to sharpen the edges of the image.

Finally, I used the Gamut Warning tool to see which parts of the image would not be printable in CMYK, as I was working in RGB.
