    Hi, I’m trying to create a PDF (for print) from my current InDesign doc. I have PSD with gradients and transparency placed within the document. As soon as I create a PDF, the colours all darken and take on a different tint. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Which pdf version? rGB versus CMYK? If transparency is needed, make a pdf/x4.
