Colour Setting in Corel when making a PDF

Colour Setting in Corel when making a PDF

Colour Setting in Corel when making a PDF

I am trying to make a PDF for the printers and when i publish to PDf and leave the colour management to RGB the pdf will look and print fine. If I change the colour setting to CMYK (which the printers want) the colours look and print washed out. Example I am using a deep brown and the RGB looks and prints brown but the CMYK setting looks and prints a washed out grey. Can anyone help?

RE: Colour Setting in Corel when making a PDF

What version are you using?

In your tools menu, do you have a colour management entry? And if so, what preset is selected in it?

For commercial printing, you should have the "professional output" option, though having chosen it you may need to go back to the design and adjust your colours.
