I have designed 100 pages of a book using InDesign .

When I share it with a link- the photos are much darker and not the correct color, yet it looks fine on the screen.

How do I make sure I am using the CMYK  colors when using a tiff into InDesign???

Hello @annm44023509 ,

You can find the color profile of your image by clicking on it and going to the Links panel. You will find everything you need to know about the link selected (color profile, size, resolution, etc.)

It is not unusual for the colors to appear slightly different on different monitors as it depends on your calibration. 

If you intend on printing your book, you should always ask the printer to check the quality and colors of your images.

Hope this helps!

If your purpose for the publication is to share it on screen, it is best not to use CMYK at all.
