Lesson 12. Managing Color > Previewing overprinting

Previewing overprinting

If you create files in graphics programs such as Adobe Illustrator, your final file may well contain one or more spot colors on a CMYK image. When such a file is printed, the spot colors can be overprinted as spot colors or they can be separated into their process color equivalents (CMYK).

Acrobat 5.0 supports overprint preview both in display and printing, with spot colors being converted to process colors for the preview. The overprint preview results obtained via these two paths are essentially the same, although there may be some differences depending on the complexity of the source file. The overprint preview obtained using the Apply Overprint Preview option in the Advanced Print Settings dialog box is generally more accurate than that obtained with the Overprint Preview command in the View menu.
