Pixel image data darker on export than in the document

Recommended Posts

Attached is 2 screen shots, one showing the editor and one showing the export:


In the PDF export, the pig, which is vector, the colours appear the same. But the animal prints and bullet points, which are pixel data, are appearing darker. I don't know if this is just a coincidence but I suspect not.

Document colour format: CMYK/8

Document colour profile: U.S. Web Coated (SWOP) v2

PDF Export: PDF (for print) and the colour space and profile are set to use the documents space and profile.

Attached are the files and the export. 

This has been annoying me for a while so I'd love to get to the bottom of it.

Many thanks.
