The Black and Grey saga...
PDF to Book

Hey Joe, thanks for that advice, that is certainly an option for black backgrounds. However, if I use any black framing around images in InDesign they show up as gey too. With so many images it is impossible to do the framing in PS and keep the borders the same when resized etc…

The Black and Grey saga...
PDF to Book

I have just uploaded the PDFs from InDesign ready to order my book. All of the colour profiles are correct (RGB left as is and CMYK converted to Blurb ICCPDF output set to convert everything to Blurb ICC).

The black backgrounds in my PDF appear grey (whereas the black in the photos appear black) but I understand that they will print black. However, the online preview in ‘My Book Projects’ also displays my black backgrounds as grey – will they print as black? Other online previews from previous books, made using Booksmart software appear black so what is the difference?

If anyone can shed a little light on this I would be extremely appreciative (esp as I need to get this delivered for Xmas!).

Thank you in advance…
