Just bought an iPad and realized that Apple products do strange things to the photos on my website, but everything looks fine on a PC. [more inside]

SpotColorFilter: I do prepress at a print shop, and need to figure out if PMS 360 C (from the Pantone spot color range) has an exact CMYK equivalent. We have a few PMS swatch books around, but not the Color Bridge variety, which is able to provide this information. [more inside]

I'm working with a client who has an existing web logo designed the majority of which is three primary colors in RGB. So left to right it's a vertical stripe of Blue (#0000FF) next to a vertical stripe of Red (#FF0000), next to a vertical stripe of Yellow (#FFFF00). This logo now needs to go on business cards (plastic ones) and so needs to convert from RGB to CMYK in order to be printed. Problem being that the CMYK gamut just doesn't do those eye popping RGB turned up to 11 primaries so conversion leaves a lackluster product and the client on seeing the drafts in PDF with the colors converted is not impressed. Ideas for saving this one? CMYK versions of those colors that contrast in a similar way to their RGB equivalents? Recommendations for printers (online or in NYC) who can do 3.5" x 2", rounded corner, double-sided, plastic business cards with special inks? HELP!

I am designing a card in photoshop, starting out in RGB then converting it to CMYK for print. The RGB looks vibrant and beautiful but the CMYK conversion is lacking contrast and the colors are washed out. Anyone have any ideas on how to maintain the beauty of the RGB image in CMYK?

What (free) Windows program will convert a CMYK TIFF to a lossless CMYK JPEG2000, assuming JPEG2000 can cope with CMYK? If possible, I'd like to avoid having to know how JPEG2000 works just to be able choose the right settings.

Adobe 1.5.2 (Mac OS 9x). Deleting a swatch... I have an RGB document with a single full-color image and two spots (Blue and Black). I'm converting the document to CMYK for print: I've swapped out the RGB JPG for a CMYK TIF, the Black swatch is fine, and now I want to delete the Blue (RGB) swatch and do a global replace for the Blue (CMYK). But InDesign isn't allowing me to delete it, nor to modify.
Suggestions? Adobe doesn't support 1.5.2 any longer, and their online help has been purged of relevant documents.
