Open your photoshop document and select image, mode and then select the desired colour mode (Bitmap, Greyscale, Duotone,Indexed Colour, RGB, CMYK, Lab Colour, Multichannel). For litho and digital printing, set the mode to CMYK for all images.
A cheap trick for trapping your illustrator text or logo would be to use the overprint stroke option. Having your paper sitting in a cold damp factory in the UK can cause the paper to stretch (marginally but still enough to influence the printing results!) when going through the printing press. This can cause fitting issues.
Imagine having a 2 colour logo. The logo is a blue solid rectangle with a red spot colour logo in the centre. To print this you would print the blue with the red area knocked out (appears white). You would then print the red over the top of the white area. If there is any stretch in the paper as it passes from the blue unit to the red unit of the printing press, you will end up with a very fine white outline, almost like a white shadow around the red logo.
To combat this, you would select the red part of the logo in Illustrator, and apply a very fine stroke - lets say 0.2 point in this case. You would then make it overprint by going -> Window ->Attributes and tick the option "Overprint Stroke". Now the stroke area will marginally print over the top of the blue, avoiding a white shadow.
Trying to open a PDF in Adobe Illustrator but having font issues? Following is a work around.
Rather than directly opening the PDF, first create a new document with the same dimensions as the PDF. Then place the PDF by selecting File->Place, selecting the option "crop" next to the heading "crop to". Once the PDF is positioned on the pasteboard, select Object->Flatten Transparency. This will bring up a Flatten Transparency option window. Select high resolution under "preset" and then tick "Convert all text to outlines" and "Convert all strokes to outlines". You will now be able to select every element of the PDF and edit as necessary.
Did you know that you can simply convert your RGB and spot colour Illustrator files to CMYK by selecting all your elements within the document (Windows CTRL A, Mac Apple A) and then by going to ->Edit->Edit Colours->Convert to CMYK. Once Complete, you just need to go to ->File->Document Colour mode and ensure it's set to CMYK.
If you have ever used a Photoshop DCS file, then you will know that they can be a right pain to deal with in some prepress setups. The spot colours cannot be trapped with preflight software and conversion to CMYK can be a task. A simple way around these problems is to separate the spot colour channel as a bitmap and later colour it up in Adobe inDesign with the swatch palette. For example, if you had a DCS file which consisted of a CMYK image and then a spot colour channel (5 colour), I would delete the spot channel, then save the 4 colour image as a CMYK tif (make sure you don't overwrite the original image). I would then reopen the original image and delete the CMYK portion, leaving just the spot channel. Then change the mode of this image to bitmap(1200dpi) and save it as a tif. Once you have your separate CMYK and bitmap images, you can insert them into Adobe inDesign. Simply place the CMYK image on to the canvas and then overlay it with the bitmap image at the position it was on the original DCS. You can then select the white arrow tool and recolour the bitmap back to it's original colour with the colour palette. All trapping can be handled by Adobe inDesign when exporting to a printers PDF.
