Problem, certain areas in exported pdf print differ from the background (Gray/black)

Hey,

 

I have an issue with my exported pdf. 

 

First, I inverted colours (black/white) in Illustrator from a picture in order to match the background from the file in my InDesign project. My defaults in Illustrator are in CMYK as well as in InDesign.

 

From my InDesign project:

indesign file.png

After exporting:

exported pdf.png

 

Sorry in advance, but i'm a beginner, maybe this is just a small problem or I have a fallacy.

 

Cheers

I assume that the your barcode is vector file.

Is there one rectangle object arround the barcode?

Open your barcode in illustrator and eliminate the rectangle object arround the your barcode.

In illustrator leave it only the white barcode without nothing else.

Save it as .ai  and then import your barcode in indesign

Problem solved. Somehow, CMYK changed back to RGB in Illustrator as I changed it. Hmm.

 

Thanks anyway!
