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?

That looks like you might be working in CMYK, and opening them in Preview (which barely knows how to handle CMYK, and can't display it correctly).
I re-opened the .jpg in PS and it looks perfect, I also opened in acrobat & firefox and it looks like it should. What the heck preview! What do you use to view your non .psd files after they are finished?
