IKEA Flyer update

  • Make sure to convert those ikea photos to photoshop files before placing into an illustrator document.
  • Change color profile in photoshop, not color mode, to Adobe RGB 1998 and save as a psd file.
  • Make sure to have all the files (images) in folder with the illustrator file since the normal workflow would be to link the photoshop files to the illustrator file.
  • Don not embed photoshop files.
