    Identify cmyk and rgb

    Newbie question. How do you know if there are any RGB images in a pdf file? And which elements are RGB? And for coreldraw and illustrator?

    Do you use Adobe Acrobat? You can use the preflight profiles to convert all RGB in the pdf to cmyk or visa versa.

    Acrobat/tools/print production/preflight/convert colors/"choose your profile"/Analyze and fix/Save.

    You can also import the pdf into indesign and under the links tab you can set the options to show the color format or each link.

    If you open your pdf file at Corel Draw, take a look at the file proprieties.
    Corel lists all cmyk and rgb objects (vector and images).

    At Illy, just open one page of your pdf and click at the image, with the white arrow. After that, look at left, near programĀ“s menu. If you selected the image, the program now show the image type (CMYK or RGB)

    For one page documents you can skip preflight and just use the separation/output preview panel in print production.

    On the second field next to ''Show'' you can choose what color space acrobat previews !
