The color All offset printer can use chocolate mousse to pint if you feed it with that... well probably no, but it does not matter what is the color of the ink you feed. Some Machines can print just one color at the time. That is one head printer. For aditional colors you need to clean the machine and feed the paper again. Some machines can print 2 colors ...

Maybe your Photoshop is not set to Fogra or has a different setup in your "Edit/Color Settings". There are many options that can throw it off if your InDesign doesn't match. Otherwise, if you study color management, you'll discover that conversion is tricky. It doesn't just go from RGB to CMYK. First you have to convert CMYK to LAB using the profile and ...

It is NOT a Mac OSX vs Windows... It is a color calibrated workflow issue. The options are. A. 1) Send a color chart to the client. (see this post How to get close to PMS 662 or PMS 296 in CMYK?) Already embedded in a Word file. 2) Let him print this color chart on the specific printer they will be using. 3) Pick up that sample. 4) Adjust the colors ...
