Hi all,

When I export my images created in Designer, here is the not very bright result I am facing.
These designs are exported with the maximum quality. They stack paths, textures and Layer Effects.

If your PDF is RGB and not CMYK, it will look different, and this is expected.

The colours will look different, of course, but the texture details shouldn’t disappear.

The document is CMYK, but the texture details are coming from an embedded RGB PSD. Maybe this is the cause?

Hi Joachim and Alfred and Gabe,

after reimporting the texture in CMYK, the same lack of detail is still there.
I exported in PSD the two layers where the texture was located and reimported the PSD :
everything is back in order at the PDF level. As long as the fault can be avoided ...
But there is a technical "detail" to be explored...

Thanks again
