    Colored Tiff appears different color when exported to PDF


      Hi everyone,


      I am having an issue with the colored Tiff functionality in InDesign CC.


      I have a series of print designs that all use the same structure: a colored TIFF as background, and a duotone PSD file on top of it.
      Most of these designs are working flawlessly. However, for some reason two of them show a drastic shift in the color of the background TIFF when I export them into a print PDF. Please note, this does not happen when creating a "Interactive" PDF, or another type of file... only with "Print" PDF.


      Here is what my file looks like in InDesign:

      And here is what it becomes when exported to PDF:

      Any idea what the problem might be? I checked the source files in Photoshop and I can't see any difference between these, and the other pages that are exporting without any problems. But I might be missing something.
      I tried to recreate the same design in a brand new file, but the same thing keeps happening.


      Any pointers welcome!


      Thanks a lot!
