    The blue scales remind me of Bumblebee's face. Whichever way you choose to go, make it the simpler version, so for example the two circles rather than the literal scales, you want to show not tell. Make...

    He looks like he's been in a fight with a cassette.

    You can't do a poster and assume you'll throw all the imporant when and where stuff in later. They're integral.

  • Rasterizing in InDesign?

    Is there a way to rasterize a colored text box in InDesign? When I try to print, the colors are really messed up...kind of like in Illustrator if you print without rasterizing first. I've also exported it to a PDF and got the same results.

    Thanks,
    Shane

    You could rasterise your pdf in photoshop, but if the pdf is bad then it may look bad there too. If you're printing to a postcript printer you may get bad results if your file is not set up correctly. make sure all your colour setting are correct etc..

      Can you be more specific about the colors being messed up? I've never rasterized anything before I print out of Illy. And the colors are fine.

        Basically when I print, the color isn't even remotely close to what it's supposed to be. I'm pretty sure that my color settings are fine but maybe not. It is being sent to a PS printer, maybe that's where the problem is.

          But rasterizing helps the color problem? I've just never heard of that. It sounds like something needs to be tweaked in your printer settings.

            Also, the photos that are placed in the indesign file print fine. It's just vector art from Illy and colored text boxes in indesign that print wrong.

              Yeah, if I rasterize the vector art and then place it in the indesign file it prints fine.

                Like I said, it sounds like something needs to be tweaked with printer settings. Rasterizing vector art completely defeats the purpose.

                Sorry I can't be more helpful. Are the pre-rasterized colors spot colors?
