  • Unsupported color space in Acrobat

    Does anyone have a work around for this error msg in Acrobat - Could not complete your request because a color was specified using an unsupported color space?

    I was sent a pdf that I need to separate as 2 colors, K & 201. When I print the seps I'm getting a 4 color process. There's an imbedded PS image that when I try to edit from the pdf I get the above error message.
    I have a feeling something very, very simple is eluding me.

    Make a copy of the file first

    In Object Editing - go to properties>colour> and convert the profile to something that is supported.

    Open it in Photoshop and make it a two colour the way you need it.

      You can also do a Preflight Report on the colour spaces used - to find out what profile that image on that page is using.

      I'd also make sure both Acrobat and Photoshop are up to date.

          Is it live text or have the characters been converted to shapes? If the latter is true, it's to be expected, I'd think they would have left the groups intact or converted the shapes to a compound path...

          You aren't really cultivating any real world experience by participating in a contest, it's not remotely similar to how a designer and client interact on a professional level. Being a student, you should...

          The typography could use some attention, there are a number of widows in the copy (I realize it's all Lorem Ipsum, but it still matters). I'm not sure what you are trying to achieve with the left and...

          Not bad, nice colors. Here's a few observations:
          Grid. Though you have three columns they are not lined up in a grid of any sort, research that.
          Text. Most newsletters have more text so add...

          I like the concepts, but none of them - to me - represent an auto parts store. The name itself, which I know you don't have control over, sounds more like a metal band than an auto parts store. I think...
