Can I step all the way back to when the client should have used InDesign instead of Photoshop, and then smack them in the face with a cold mackerel?

You jinxed me. I got a 64 page job today all done in Photoshop and supplied flattened .psd files. All black text was 4 color and was sitting on a crappy ghosted 4 color image. Customer approved it over my objections. Bang! Zoom! Away to plate and I don't give a damn!

I never give that stuff much thought. We do what we can, we inform the customer of the issues and what they can expect if they approve for print. After that it is all their issue. We have them sign off proofs and we are done with it.

Which is what I did. But that won't be the end of it when they come back complaining about it.

I bet they have a hacked version of Photoshop CS6 and that is it. When dealing with Photoshop files supplied by customers I will usually just hide the text layer and reset it in Indesign if I have to make changes. Can be quicker then fighting around Photoshop. Of course for 64 pages that is another story. Hopefully was not all in one photoshop page with each page on a different layer.

Trust me it was no Photoshop guru. Photoshop gurus know that Photoshop is not a page layout application. They use it for retouching and correcting photos. Like it was designed for. ;D

That is my guess too. It was 64 .psd files. Flattened .psd files.
