    Exporting Mac Illustrator CS5 PDF files - colors darker in PDF vs. AI

    Diane84 Level 1



      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.
