Pictures and copy have a washed out look when exported from Illustrator to Photoshop.
Posted on 2006-05-23
I create a grayscale ad in Photoshop (300 dpi) with pictures and copy and "place" it in Illustrator in order to add yellow copy and highlights. When exported back to Photoshop PSD and flattened and saved as PDF, it will then print as a two (2) color ad in the magazines to which it is sent.
When the page is exported back to Photoshop, it has a washed out look and has lost all of the sharpness for both the pictures and copy. It has the same look even if I make no additions in Illustrator. What am I doing wrong or what should I be doing differently?
