in photoshop, when i convert a 300dpi rgb jpg to cmyk (image>mode>cmyk),
save as tif, and import to freehand, then the image appears much darker..

what bothers me is that these images were labeled PRINT ONLY etc. theyr all
good quality hi-res jpgs meant for promos. from a press ftp site.. so i must
be doing something wrong?

iv tried different color settings (adobe 98, sheetfed etc,) and the result
is always the same... when i open the images in ps it says rgb in the title
bar, any chance of ps misreading the image? im considering using the
original jpgs, but the publisher will moan?
