    Help with exporting duotones to PDF?

    AndrewSober

      Hello all.

       

      I am creating invitations for an annual meeting in InDesign cs6 using duotone images created in photoshop cs6. I placed the images into the indd file and all seemed alright. Then, as soon as I export the file to a PDF, the duotone somehow converts to a monotone image using only one of the pantone colors I chose. I have tried using a PSD file as well as a PDF file for the duotone format and neither work. We really lose a lot of the deep tonality in the images without the darker color. Is there any remedy for this?

       

      Below is a screen shot of the indd file.

      And here is a screenshot of the final PDF.
