Problems exporting an RGB file as PDF

May 1, 2013 3:59 AM

Hello,

 

Here is my problem.

 

I made a 10 pages file in InDesign, RGB space designed for web. Created some masters. After exporting (smallest file size as well as others too) to pdf the result gives me different tint of colour on pages even if i used the same master. So, if page 2 uses Master A and page 4 uses the same master A, in pdf they have a different color, more like they have a different color managment.

 

Please help me with this issue and sorry if i couldnt explain very well.

 

Ana

    I'm not seeing a lot of difference in the color on my screen, but My guess is there is transparency involved on some pages and not others, and the the transparency blend space is set to CMYK instead of RGB.

    So just what color is wrong in the screen capture?  Are you sure this isn't a monitor issue? We had a user a few weeks ago with a monitor that displayed color unevenly from top to bottom.

    Turn on Separations Preview (Window > Output > Separations Preview and choose Separations from the dropdown). Put the cursor in an area that should be the same on both pages but looks differnt and check the numbers to see if they really are different.

    If the numbers are the same and the appearance is different, it is the monitor. It should make no difference if the image is saved as .psd, .tif, or .jpg (except that .jpg does not support transparency).
