My printer received a file from a client that he intended to farm out to another printer but it was rejected by the ink police. So he gave it to me to see if I can fix it. After looking at it I can see that all the images are in srgb. The file has been produced in Publisher apparently and then made into a pdf via distiller if I am to believe the pdf document info. After looking at the file it is an incredible mess. I opened some of the (30) pages in illustrator. All the images are sliced into tiny pieces. There are some images that are only 5x7cm but are in 5 slices!. Not only that but all the type is not in one piece. Most pages have each letter on a separate layer, as editable type!! weird. I have discovered that I can select all the slices and copy them as a single piece to paste into Photoshop. When looking at the separations in Acrobat it indicates that the type is only printing as 100%k which is a good thing. My question is basically this... Is there a way to somehow convert all the tiny sliced image files to cmyk and leave everything as it is, (and will it print OK if I do this) or is this file such a fracking mess that it *has* to be rebuilt entirely in Indesign? Let me know if any more info is required. Thanks.
