For the purposes of testing this you could force the software to output CMYK or RGB somewhere on the sheet.
Did DRT just get all computer technical and stuff. Julian what have you done to him? :shock: :shock:

Brilliant. Done. Old files replaced.

Surely the best approach would be a CMYK to RGB colour-space conversion performed in post-script? ;)

On my HP Officejet Pro 8600 Plus at home, RGB is considerably darker and sharper. Will bring the prints to the next tasting we attend together.
Wow! That is very surprising. Thank you for testing.
Maybe I'll just check that I got them the right way round.
OK, retested with the updated pdfs. Same result, RGB darker and sharper.

Will also test on a Samsung Multi-function laser printer in the office tomorrow.
