so RGB pdf from Ilustrator....? I need to safe logo from Ilustrator as RGB pdf and colour numbers need to hold as per how they are in illustrator.
My illustrator document is in RGB (working space is Adobe 1998) when I make the pdf I save as pdf my and settings are as follows
I have tried both include profiles and don't include. The pdf that is made is RGB however the colour numbers change. How do I get the RGB numbers in the pdf to stay the same as the RGB numbers in the illustrator document?
Illustrator version 26.0.3
Thanks in advance
How do you check the changed color numbers?
Adobe Acrobat Po DC
How do you measure them in Acrobat?
It can be difficult to compare color values, Illustrator uses 0-255, Acrobat 0-100% (correct me if you know how to change that).
If Acrobat has Overprint Preview On, it displays RGB as a CMYK conversion.
Ah YES totally forgot about the percentage vs 0-255
So if Acrobat does not allow checking RGB numbers correctly then would the best to check be to bring the pdf back into Illustrator or Photoshop and check the values there?
When I check the numbers in acrobat I make sure the overprint preview is not ticked and use a simulation profile that is Adobe RGB 1998.
Yes, you can check it in Photoshop.
Thanks for your assistance.
I hope it worked for you.
If you reopen it in Illustrator, it doesn't read the exported PDF, instead it reopens the original Illustrator document. So you can't use this to check. Expect raster images to shift slightly because lossy JPEG compression is used.
It depends on how you save the PDF, when saved without Illustrator Editing capabilities, it will read the values from the PDF.
