Creating Print Ready PDF for Cover
« on: November 19, 2020, 12:49:08 am »
Hi! Does anyone know the best way to creat a print-ready pdf for a paperback cover, using photoshop? Do you just save as a high quality photoshop pdf? Are there any color settings to watch out for?

    If your version of Photoshop allows it, you should save using the PDF/X-1a output setting. Your cover should be CMYK rather than RGB, for the best sense of what the colors will look like when printed.
