Hi, I am using PS7 to produce a magazine. So basically, I have to type words, attach pictures, etc, to make it look like a magazine. Below is what I encountered:

1) Open a New File under 'FILE'
2) Open a small size Jpeg file from desktop (Size: 184x184 pixels)
3) Drag the Jpeg file into the New file created in step 1
4) However, Jpeg file immidately become Black & White

Qn 1: Why will it become Black and White, any ways to maintain its colour?
Qn 2: Is there any ways or free softwares to convert the completed files in PS7 to PDF?

Thanks a million!!!

When you open a new file is the Color Mode option in Grayscale ? If it is set to RGB.
Hi, thanks for your reply. If you are talking about the slider on the left hand side... Yup, mine is a grey silder. But how to change it to RGB? So after changing, will have 3 colour silders instead of the grey slider?

you are using PS to do the whole magazine? :bigeyes:

1. You need to be working in CMYK if you want to send your files for ColourSep.
2. You also need to have 300dpi resolution if your printed linescreen is 105 lpi
3. You need to create crop marks and registration marks
4. PS is NOT a page layout software, so use something else.

Can be done. Only thing is the individual files will get very huge and slow down your com.

Actually, you can create multi page PDFs using Photoshop...can't remember since which version, but if you go to File/Automate/PDF Presentation you can select a bunch of PDF files and combine them into either a presentation or a multipage PDF...
