    saving as .jpg or .tiff loses black

    mhossey Level 1

      I am in CS5



      After saving and opening up as a .tiff or .jpg the black has faded and becomes much more weak, why is this? This happens every so often when I'm working with files, but I don't know the reason, maybe a setting I need to tick? If anyone has the solution or suggestions I would much appreciate it.


      -I created my event poster in CMYK, the darkest black I used was 75, 68, 67, 90

      -I have 1 photo (background mountains) that was orginally RGB and converted to CMYK when brought in.

      -Tested merging all layers together and the outcome was fine, only after saving and viewing is it faded

      -Could this be a monitor issue, or even the settings in my "preview" that are throwing this off?
