Using images in CorelDraw
20 ways to proof read your documents.
  For more tips and tutorials go to


• Unless you have a carefully calibrated monitor, go by numbers and colour swatches, not by how the job looks on the screen!
• Save your images as CMYK, not RGB. RGB images usually print with flat, lifeless colour.
• If the same image is used at different sizes in the one document, it should be cropped, resized and saved for each use. Cropping to a small part of a large image can slow down job processing substantially.
• Don't use PICT files, which are always RGB, and don't paste into picture boxes - import and place files.
• Always select 'Use Printer Defaults' (Page Setup > screen) when saving PhotoShop files. This will remove the possibility of individual images printing to a different screen ruling (usually more coarse!) than the rest of the document.


• Remove all unused spot/custom colours from your document, as well as from all placed files in the document (charts, illustrations etc.). In Illustrator, go to Custom Colours>Select all unused>Delete>Save>Update.
• It is particularly important in Illustrator that black lines are CMYK black and not spot black. If the are spot black, they will print on all four plates. This can be achieved universally in a document by selecting Filter>Colours>Adjust Colours> and selecting Custom and B&W colours to Process.
• Black text may print on all four plates of a CMYK separated job if text is cut and pasted from some software (such as MS Word or Excel or Publisher), or if Publish and Subscribe is used with Excel. If you have to work this way, please let us know so we can plan appropriate action to ensure the text prints only on the black sections of you printing.
