I just happened to get the following today from Emazing  (a computer and
internet Tip service) today:

(General) Here's just a little information about color in the computer

-Your computer monitor displays colors by combining three basic colors--red,
green, and blue--together. This is RGB (short for Red, Green, and Blue).

-When you print files, they are normally printed using a four-color process.
The colors used to print are cyan, magenta, yellow, and black. This is known
as CMYK (for Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and blacK).

-When you scan, most scanners pick up and convert their data to RGB. When
you print, you're using CMYK. Problem is, the range of available colors in
the RGB palette is more extensive than CMYK's palette. This means that some
of the colors you see on your screen may not print out as you see them on
your screen. If you use Photoshop, you can preview your work in CMYK mode
and have the colors that are out of range displayed so you can tweak them.
You may want to keep this in mind when creating graphics for printing.
