i have created an index pattern that will be printed on the side of a catalog.
The pattern uses color dodge as the only effect to simulate other color variations.
Just before finalizing i noticed that when finally converting to cmyk (generate pdf in indesign), the pattern changes colors horrible turning to yellow etc.
in illustrator :
i have adobe rgb 1998 as rgb and euroscale coated v2 as color settings.
document raster settings are set to 600dpi (or 300dpi does not affect the outcome)
how do i export the pattern looking like rgb but in cmyk because when i use it in indesign and generate the PDF file in indesing it looks like crap.
can anyone advise. i have created a jpeg previews of the pattern in rgb (left) and cmyk (right) also i can upload the original pattern in eps or illustrator cs 2 if you like
