Limitations about Hex to CMYK conversion

One important thing to point out is the fact that the Hex color range is greater than de CMYK color range. This means that conversion from Hex to CMYK is not lossless because CMYK can only hold a subset of alle the available CMYK colors. There are some colors where you do not see any real difference, but you will see that converting some shades of Hex turquoise to CMYK will result in a much dirtier color than it should. This is a technical limitation, there is nothing you can do about this.

Pro Tip: in some cases, if the conversion result does not meet your expectations, it can be helpful to choose another color in the CMYK color space, even if it is not the technically correct converted color. Sometimes this results in a color that is visually nearer than the conversion result.
