I'm used to working with a color managed workflow in Aperture; my monitor and printer are both calibrated. I'm having trouble getting accurate color when those photos are placed in a Pages document - whether they're imported directly from Aperture using the Media function in Pages, or exported as a JPEG and drag-dropped over the Pages placeholder image.


The pictures take on a slight magenta-blue cast when dropped into Pages, a cast which is not present when viewed natively in Aperture, soft proofed in Aperture, or when printed from Aperture. When I export them as JPEGs, I assign an sRGB colorspace to them; Aperture, of course, treats everything as AdobeRGB until exported. Both colorspaces present the same shift.


A known good (third party) color-managed test JPEG shows the same effect, regardless of whether it's AdobeRGB or sRGB. Aperture and Pages are both the lastest versions.


I can, of course, use the image sliders to compensate somewhat, but that is extra work I shouldn't need to do!

Any help would be appreciated.
