Color Mismanagement

Understanding Color Management Differences

I'm printing documents for clients (some use CS and some use CS2), but I'm finding huge differences in how these documents print color from when I was using CS.


You're right, Adobe made big changes in InDesign's color management system in CS2. For starters, color management is turned on by default in CS2, so pretty much everyone is using it whether they know it or not. Second, InDesign CS2's “Preserve Numbers” feature is a huge step forward because it stops CMYK colors that don't have a corresponding color profile from being converted at print time (or when you create a PDF). The result: your 100% black text won't change to four-color text when this is turned on. Hooray!
