Yes but there's lots of blue in the artwork, so I want to see the the conversion comes out (and, if necessary, tweak the colour balance) before I send the file to the printer.

Aha! Hole in one, old chap: well done! Yep, you can convert to CMYK when exporting as a PDF (though not if you print to Distiller).

Thanks very much!

Robin, what's Nero?

In the US that's CD-burning software, makes no sense in the context your using so I assume there's another application of that name?

Nero is CD-burning software, similar to Roxio's EZ CD Creator and, like EZCD, it includes its own printing application. Fine for home use, but not for litho printing 10,000 copies!

Ah, they're using Nero's "jewel case" maker, etc., and they think that's suitable for PUBLICATION?

A sad ROFL. Whatever gave them that idea? (Don't answer.<G>)

Default Cmyk

You can have InDy convert to a CMYK profile
going to the PostScript stream,
when you would rather use Distiller.

It is quite slick converting to CMYK and trapping
while writing PostScript to send to Distiller.
The trapping is quite good
although not as good as a Rampage RIP
or some other "trapping" solution.

It's OK: it takes an hour to put it right, so we make an extra 50 quid. Our client has an excellent Quark designer, but the boss likes doing the design himself for his music CDs (he plays in the band). I can appreciate it: it's his hobby.
