Is there a way to set the Total Area Coverage (TAC or Density) in the Export options from InDesign?
I feel that the color management tools relate to elements created within InDesign and not placed images.
My printer requires a PDF/X-1a:2001 compliant PDF with a TAC of 240% maximum.
Is this possible using from within InDesign, or do I have to address 'Placed' images within Photoshop or Illustrator?
Thank you for your response, in advance.
InDesign's colour management can be set to affect placed content as well as native content.
Do you have (or can your printer provide, or suggest) a CMYK profile that has 240% TAC?
The correct workflow is to place RGB images with color profile into InDesign and either export as CMYK PDF/X-1a or let the printer convert it and export as X-4.
