    Hi Everyone,

    Had a couple of quick burning questions I was hoping for some input

    1)When moving graphics such as colored backgrounds from PS to Quark,
    should I have the color management systems set on either or both?

    2)When viewing a Quark Document in Acrobat 6 Pro, is there a way to
    use the new feature "Separations Preview Available" in order to
    reconcile the visual differences between colors created in PS and
    brought into Quark versus colors created directly in Quark itself?

    Thanks in advance,

    Turn off Color Management in Quark
    Throw the extension away
    Empty the trash
    Place .eps files into Quark - not .tif files

    Turn off Color Management in Quark
    Good advice. Quark's color manglement...err, management sucks like a weasel
    getting sucked into a jet engine, with some additional suck on the side.
    As long as you aren't using Quark's color manglement, TIFF images work fine in
    Quark. You should use EPS files if you need some special functionality of EPS
    (such as spot color) or you're using a clipping path, and you must take care
    never to put a grayscale or color TIFF in a Quark box with a fill of "none,"
    but other than that, TIFF files work great, and are smaller than the same image
    saved as an EPS file.

    I use TIFF files daily in Quark, for everything from brochures to billboards to
    catalogs to annual reports.
