PDF Conversion Issue?

    Evening guys,

    I'm designing a Boeing 747-400 for my son and I to build during half term. I'm in the process of adding the textures for it and thought I'd do a test conversion of the file to PDF to see how it would look and there's something that's bothering me.

    The images get slightly altered in terms of colour. I'll post images to show what I mean but flat colours get this sort of highlight effect during the conversion and become a little more intense but also have lighter and darker shades instead of remaining flat. I don't know how else to put it?

    The first attachment is after PDF conversion, the second pic shows how it appears originally while I work on it in Paint Shop Pro.

    Any ideas why this happens and how to avoid it? I'm using doPDF v7.

    check the settings of this program! that looks like the picture (resolution) is "cropped" or reduced!

    No the resolution is the same. My images to give an example of the problem are JPG's so no doubt corrupted slightly during the upload for my post. But the discoloration in my first image is how it looks after converting to PDF. Another forum has suggested that it may be due to me not saving my work as PNG before converting?
