Hi, does anyone else notice that the colors look different in the designer than on the output PDF & Raster images? When the pdf is opened in Illustrator the values match but visually the colors do not match the ones inside the designer.
I though it could be the way the browser renders colors but it's not the browser(s). Colors just look lighter in the designer.
Also, when I use shapes they render at 40% opacity, anyone else experience this?
This may be a critical issue as I cannot use the Pitchprint designer if what people are designing doesn't look like what they receive. This would result in returns/refunds.
I've tried just the preloaded colors, so it's not even graphics that I added. But I did try it with colors I input myself and still the same result.
Thanks much for your help.
The colors are perfect. The remember PDF is rendered in CMYK, while the app (screen) is rendered in RGB. Also the conversion is best done by the admin.
What you see in the PDF is the exact value entered as CMYK for the corresponding RGB value; but if a CMYK is not provided in the color swatch, then the distiller tries to do a conversion which at times might not be exactly accurate as what you intended.
Isaac you can solve a little part of the problem with color piker: it works in rgb so customer can use RGB color and then it changes in pdf. I suggest you to change color piker in CMYK and not in RGB or to add a function in admin ON/OFF color piker for customer colors (MY COLOR)
I have the same problem when I use a CMYK.JPG as Backgroundfile. It need to be in CMYK because I want a good result in print. Can you please create a better view of CYMK.JPG's asap?
It is a big point for my customers, they don't like the colors in the Designer and that makes them unsettled. See example:
@Phillipp: i have only tested the actual artwork-part of PP. we are printing on textiles, so backgrounds are only for previewig purposes for us. looking at your sample - a cmyk-upload - it looks like background-files are only handeled in RGB mode(?). based on my test results: have you tried to upload RGB backgrounds? they should give you(r customers) a more precise preview online and you can always convert them to CMYK for your printing... given RGB's larger gammut i don't see any cons really?
Did you also see that images added by client in shapes are slightly shifted between preview and rendered images.
Sometimes images are not filling anymore the full shape .
These shifts also occurs when you re-edit later a design previously saved.
Make some tests and you will see.
For us it's a big issue, because at the end client will not have what they have previewed.
I have uploaded svg and until 1 month ago if you changed svg color it worked on pdf!
Now svg are non convert in the user's colors!
