I am a new Indesign user and I have been working with GIMP for the last year creating single colour print-ready PDFs. But now I need to create a document with a FOGRA27 CMYK colour profile and a resolution of at least
How do I create a document with an imported PDF in 300dpi using a FOGRA27 colour profile?
I can import the PDF by creating a new document and finding the PDF in places, but it's bad quality.
The only colour profile I can find under View - Proof Setup is FOGRA39, but I need FOGRA27!
Help help help, I need to get these files printed in two days!
Thanks so much..
PDF you placed should be of high quality, you may be seeing bad quality because you may have not selected View->Display Performance->High Quality Display.
FOGRA27 should be listed in View->Proof Setup->Custom dialog.
Proof Colors doesn't change the file's color management, it just lets you see what the color values would look like if they are printed unchanged on different output devices. If you want to actually convert the color from one CMYK space to another, it's probably better to do that in Acrobat—Tools>Print Production>Convert Colors.
There's very little difference between Fogra27 and Fogra39—Fogra27 allows more total ink 350 vs. 330.
There's nothing you can do to improve the quality of low res images
