Placing PDF That Includes An Image Can Cause Visual Oddities

Recommended Posts

I created a PDF flyer on Publisher, exported is as a PDF, and want to place that PDF in a new Publisher document. The PDF flyer contains a TIFF image of the book cover. If I place that PDF into a Publisher document, the TIFF image goes all weird and black and white (see screenshot). I have other PDFs in that include TIFF images, and they seem to place OK, so not sure why this particular PDF / image is causing issues. Screenshot and PDF attached. Thoughts?

OK I'll need the original afpub document that you used to create the pdf file and if you can remember what settings were used in the pdf export that would be useful

Attached. I'm not sure what options I changed (in that I can't remember), but I probably turned off JPEG compression and turned Resampler to Bicubic.

Edit: I might have also converted colour profile to CMYK, Coated FOGRA39
