I have created my book in indesign using mainly cmyk jpegs. I have also used some PDS images as they contain transparency. I know that images are supposed to be flattened before I pdf them, but when I flatten these, the transparency is lost, changing the whole design. What am I best doing to avoid this? Or, will the process of making the pdf flatten the images sufficiently?
Thank you for reading all help appreciated )

Hi, to be honest, I don't know what PSD is but what I do know is, I tried to upload transparencies and a notice came up basically telling me PDF/pda hates transparencies.

This is not my area of expertise but is the answer here somewhere?
I found this comment also: PSD offers a unique feature - it supports layers while every other format must be flattened on export. Any program that supports PSDs directly can then leverage this layer information. Any program that supports PSDs directly can then leverage this layer information. Saving as layered images is quite handy as it allows to edit different parts of an image at a later date far easier.
Forgive me if I don't know what I'm talking about!

All I can find is this >> http://pds.nasa.gov/about/about.shtml well, do do with data suffixes anyway!
Then again it could be from this >>> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Print_Shop from the 1980s!
You have to wonder why people do not stick to file types in very very wide-usage. Or read Lulu's site.
BTW, why do they have to be transparent?
