I am new to Adobe Illustrator CS5 (MAC OS 10.6) and have been doing a lot of research and testing saving AI CS5 files in "Press Quality" PDF format. When I preview the PDF files in MAC's Preview application (will get Acrobat Reader as well) everything looks nice and crisp, but the colors are a bit on the dark side compared to my original AI files, namely the burgundy. Needless to say, I am only using CMYK and the resolution has been set to High. Any thoughts on what I need to do in oder to correct this?
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
How much of a shift are you getting? Sounds like common Preview limitations. Double check your monitor calibration ( if any ).
Thanks John. Yes, I mistakenly previewed my AI PDF files in MAC's Preview application instead of using Adobe Acrobat Reader. Eventually, I plan to get Acrobat Pro.
