Colours moving from Affinty to PDF file for printing and Resolution issues

Recommended Posts

As a new user I have been working to learn Affinity from scratch.

I'm the new editor for the magazine of the Rolls-Royce Enthusiasts' Club ( Wessex Section ).

I have successfully prepared the first magazine for printing but the printer, who uses Adobe Indesign and Illustrator, says I need to send him the magazine as a PDF.

He doesn't use Affinity.

I have used both Bulldog and MS PDF to convert to a single pdf but he says the photographs turn out with false colours. For example, There is a red tint particularly noticeable in faces.

Am I doing something wrong ?

Also, perfectly good advertisements I receive from our advertisers as pdfs look good on screen but when dropped into Affinity, the resolution drops to an unacceptable level. Can you help please ?

Why have you chosen to use those? What reason is there for not exporting from Affinity directly to PDF?

It would help to know which Affinity application(s) you are using.

I'm using Publisher. Thanks for the tip. I have been exporting using the printer option and that produces a file of 4Mb.

Using the direct print method you suggested produces a file ten time the size (!) but the colours are rendered true and the adverts I received in PDF format are much higher resolution, so thanks !
