Creating a RGB Color Pallet that is CMYK Safe

I prefer to work in Adobe Photoshop in RGB Mode. RGB stands the primary colors of light which are Red, Green and Blue. When a book is printed the color mode that is used is CMYK. CMYK stands for Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Key Color (which is Black). It is also referred to as process color. Process color cannot reproduce all of the colors of RGB. If I am not careful I can find that I have use colors that are outside of the CMYK gamut and will not print well. Here is a tutorial that can help by creating a RGB color pallet that is CMYK safe.
