PDF / JPG CMYK to CMYK - values are changing

Post by k_2_u » 2016-07-12T14:07:11-07:00

Hello

first post :)

we currently have a script where we upload CMYK files , this then creates a CMYK PDF imposition of the file

however it's changing the CMYK values
So for example, see the original file - https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/10061551/cmyk.pdf
now u see the values on the generated file they are not the same e.g the black should be 100%k only, the Cyan should be 100% only and so on..
https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/100 ... d-file.pdf

how do we set it so the CMYK values do not change if it's a CMYK file uploaded

many thanks
Joe

I have moved this post to the User's forum, since it did not mention PAID consulting.

What are you trying to achieve? Please state that clearly. From looking at your images, I do not see any obvious visual color change.

What is your exact command line? What is your IM version and platform? Please always provide this information when asking questions on this forum.
