    Save a pdf from photoshop with layers

    katielady1 Level 1

      Hi there,


      I'm creating an illustration and it can have a spot colour on a separate layer. However, the client requires the submitted format to be a pdf with layers, with the spot colour on a separate layer.


      I can't figure out how to save a pdf from photoshop and have it save the layers.


      I'm on a Mac running Photoshop CS5.


      If I do a save as, and choose Photoshop PDF, and then check on Layers, and then save, it pops up with a box that says "The settings you choose in the Save Adobe PDF dialog can override your current settings in the Save As dialog box." Then it opens up the Adobe PDF dialog box, but there is no option to save layers in that window.


      I've attached a screenshot. Thank you!


      Update: I also tried to just import a layered PSD into InDesign and then re-export to a layered to PDF from InDesign but that didn't work either.
