Chapter 9. Color Proofing > Generating Adobe PDF Files

Generating Adobe PDF Files

The Adobe PDF file format provides a flexible way of sending your documents to others as comps, as soft and hard-copy proofs, and as final production files, all without the recipient's needing to have the source application and associated elements, such as fonts. The PDF file is essentially a proof of your document, albeit a very flexible one from a color management perspective.

Much like a QuarkXPress or InDesign document, a PDF document can contain multiple objects, including images, vector artwork, and text, created in a page layout application. Each object in a PDF document can be in a different color space and can be tagged with a profile, as long as the file type of each embedded element supports profile embedding or tagging.
