I don’t mind going through all the pictures again. It’s an inconvenience to but I sure am learning a lot about printing. I’m just so thankful that the rest of my calendars don’t have to look so bad!
Ya, well this is definitely a good learning experience, if nothing else! 🙂
The printer said he had to adjust some of the layout to make everything lined up correctly. I’m assuming that he saved it after that.
Wow, too many variables here… 🙁 If it was me, I’d ask him what he had to adjust, and then do it yourself, so that he doesn’t have to adjust and “re-save” your file. That will eliminate one more potential problem point.
But I remember seeing something in his preset about CMYK. In the my preset “High Quality print” I can’t find anything about CMYK. Could he be using an older version of Indesign that saves things differently? (I have the currant version)
It’s entirely possible that he’s using an old version of InDesign. I doubt that the color space options would change between versions though. Again, it’s something that you’ll have to ask your printer about. It’s so hard to troubleshoot from a distance! 🙁 You probably do want to save in the CMYK color space, but it’s also possible, according to this thread, that his print software (not necessarily InDesign, but the other software he uses for actually “sending” the job to print) is so outdated that it can’t handle the proper color space options. I’d recommend reading through that thread, cause it has some helpful info in it about export presets, etc.
He also is using a Mac and I’m using a PC. Would that make a difference? In the PS tiff saving setting I notices it has a option for Mac or PC.
I can’t guarantee it, but I don’t think that should make any difference. With regards to “Byte Order”, you don’t have to worry about that. Details here, if you’re interested. 🙂
