Today I finished up Chapter 30 of the Lynda.com Illustrator One-on-One: Advanced corse, witch means I’m now finished with the Illustrator corse, and I am now ready to start Adobe InDesign.
Chapter 30: Printing Your Document.
This chapter when over the same basics of printing, color Overlay, Printers Marks, Image Bleed, and color fixing.
Bleed & Color Overlay:
The barely visible red square outline is called a image bleed, and is used mostly for printing and printed image size fixes. It called be added through the vast print dialog box at the end of the File tab. [File>Print>Marks and Bleed]
For the portion of the section concerning “Color Overlay” that is mainly used by the “Separation Preview Panel” found in the Window tab.
The panel in question works with CMYK and dose not show anything if the images color mode is set to RGB.
Full CMYK Cyan|Magenta|Yellow|Black
C_ _ _ Cyan
CM_ _ Cyan|Magenta

The “Origami Flower” seems to appear silvery then its other counterparts.
Text color pre-Print fix:
The Black in the text is made up of different colors witch in most cases if fine, but for this image and the commercial printing process used that effect in not wanted.
No black-with 100% Black (No other colors added to black):
100% Full Black:
The image seen above (100% Full Black) is the desired result for this image.
The rest of the lesson was mainly talking about the different kinds of printers marks, and the different localized sets-Roman & Japanese, witch changes where the marks appear depending of witch region is chosen.
