I am designing my own simple wedding invitations and I will be printing on ivory/off-white paper. I have an image of a blue watercolor brushstroke that I've placed at the bottom of the invitation. The problem is that tit is a light brushstroke and the background is white. I was wondering if there is a way to convert all whites in an image to paper color so that doesn't show as white when I print. I have tried the magic wand, but because of the fine strokes it doesn't select the appropriate areas. One other thing to note: I'm laying this out in InDesign CC, but I'm using PhotoShop CC to edit the image. If there is a better way to deal with this directly in InDesign, that would be great too. Thank you! Image is below.
You don't need to change anything. Unless the white is a spot color, it just indicates the absence of ink. Where your image is white, no ink will be put down, and the paper color will show through.
It'll print on off-white paper, right? There's no such thing as white ink. White is the paper, and if the paper is yellowish, that's as white as it ever gets.
Edit: cross post.
Ok, thanks! I wasn't sure if the white in the image would show up differently than the "paper" white.
