Create Pantone PDF

Postby FFH Thü » Mon Dec 13, 2010 1:20 pm

How to create proper full tone (Vollton) Pantone color PDF in FreeHand MX 11:

You know, usually you have just the options to create PDF with CMYK or RGB colors. If you define objects with Pantone colors, they get converted and do not stay full tone color.

But if you define colors from the Pantone palets and export your file as EPS, then open it in Mac OS X preview app and safe it (as PDF). The resulting PDF preserves the full tone Pantone colors. You can then check it in Acrobat Pro.
