AuthorSubject: eps color   [Go to Bottom of Page]

Posted on Thu Nov 6, 2003 3:38 PM

Here's my question:

The colors in my quark document look fine on my screen and when I print them. But when I convert them to postscript files (I need to do this using the "print to disk" postscript dump method) my colors shift to something muddy that lack saturation and contrast. This is true of the colors in bitmaps, vector shapes and fonts within the quark document. How can I generate PostScript files from quark - using the "print to disk" method - without my colors going to hell? Photoshop and Illustrator eps files look fine on screen and print that way too. Note: this not specifically a print question because the color shift problem is evident on screen before printing, as well as when I print.

Here's why I ask:

Iím using ImagePrint 5.6. It does a very nice job with vector shapes and bitmaps but the only way it will recognize my Quark fonts is if I use the print to disk option which solves the font problem but introduces the color problem. ("Save page as eps" does NOT solve the font problem - but it DOES introduce the color problem)

Here's the facts:

Pentium 4 PC
Quark 4.11
ImagePrint 5.6
Epson 2200

Here's me thanking you!!!

Charles
