  • 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?

                  I believe (not sure) that you might still be able to outright buy CS6 directly from Adobe, but you had to physically call them and process it somehow over the phone (and they may discourage you every...

                  Thank you, I'm glad you like them.

                  I am considering using a different color for the portrait and the background, but I'm not sure yet how to manage it.

                  These will be produced on an offset printer with a spot resolution of 1200 lpi. The plan is one spot color on each card, with no tints.

                  I decided to give this a go. I think I prefer the original pattern, but the results are here for you to decide for yourself.

                  Unless you find a CS6 the answer would by no. You are at the mercy of your subscription to Adobe.
                  Also no telling how much longer they will support CS6.

                  The fee still works out to about...
