I have been creating an Adobe InDesign replica of a print magazine for my own learning purposes. This question is about the design and print side of InDesign.
I have created an advertising magazine [a free pick-up local one], page size 204mm width x 277mm height, and it has adverts in the following sizes:
Full-page advert 178mm width x 250mm height
Tall advert 86mm width x 249mm height
Wide advert 179mm width x 123mm height
Half-size advert 87mm width x 124mm height
Cover page, pages 2-4 and 53-56 are glossy, pages 5-52 are newsprint. There is also an insert between pages 32 and 33 in glossy print, with page numbers 1 to 8 in Roman numerals [I - VIII].
What would I need to do to ensure these come out correctly - would I export Pages 1-4, I-VIII, 53-56 as ISO Coated v2 300% (ECI) and pages 4-52 as ISOnewspaper26v4?
Would I then merge the PDFs in page number order in Acrobat, and soft-proof in Adobe Acrobat or Reader?
Also - some of the advertisers have colored adverts with grayscale image [e.g. blue box 87mm width x 124mm height but grayscale pictures] - is there a way to grayscale the image [maybe copy and greyscale in Photoshop?].
I would appreciate any advice and help - this is for my own learning purposes, and not an actual commercial print, I am doing this to understand the printing side of things [I am at a basic level of InDesign proficiency].
