    Interactive PDF export leads to dull colours

    KalST

      Hello all,

       

      I'm having a bit of a problem with exporting a booklet made in InDesign into a PDF. I'm quite a beginner with InDesign, so the problem is likely some of the more advanced colour management/profile options.

       

      Basically, the Interactive PDF shows some pages with muted colours and I suspect it's some sort of conversion from RGB to CMYK. Upon reviewing the pages it occurred to me that this only happened with those that have PNGs or PSDs placed in them with transparencies. You can see the difference in colour between pages here:

      The top page has the purple background muted.

       

      Any ideas? I've scoured the forum for a solution to no avail.

       

      Could it be due to the file intent being for Print, as opposed to Web?
