Lesson 12. Printing and PDF Exporting > Transparency flattener preview

Transparency flattener preview

The images in this brochure have been adjusted using the transparency feature. You use the Transparency Flattener to determine how the transparency will impact the final printed version.

1.
Choose Window > Output > Flattener Preview.

2.
Choose Affected Graphics from the Highlight drop-down menu in the Flattener Preview palette.

3.
Choose High Resolution from the Preset drop-down menu. This is the setting you will use later in this lesson when imaging this file.

Notice how a red highlight appears over some of the objects on the page. These are the objects that will be impacted by the transparency that has been used in this document. You can use this highlight to help identify areas of your page that may be unintentionally affected by transparency and can adjust your transparency settings accordingly.

Transparency can be applied in Photoshop CS2, Illustrator CS2, or directly in the InDesign CS2 layout. The Flattener Preview can identify transparent objects, regardless of whether the transparency was created using InDesign or imported from another program.

4.
Choose None from the highlight menu in the Flattener Preview palette.
