Hey there!

I have this strange problem I cannot figure out. Any advice would be highly aprecciated. I’m making a magazine in Indesign and when I export the pdf (or print postrcript file and distill the pdf) then the total area coverage of inks of the images are way over limit when I check it in Acrobat.
I have converted all the images from RGB to CMYK using correct profiles. I have several different papers in the magazine, so I used Fogra27 (300 total ink) for coated papers and custom Swop for uncoated paper (260 total ink).
Then I preflight the document in Indesign then it’s says all the ICC profiles are emedded in the images.
I even tried to export from Indesign with the overall color profile included. But it’s the same problem.

I cannot figure out why the images are still over limit?

Thanks a lot!
Risto

Well what profile does the Acrobat file have embedded? Sounds like you are doing a conversion upon creation.

Which ones are over limit? Only the 260s or also the 300s? What are Your Indesign-Export-Settings?
