Is there any way of changing the colour levels of the PDF as you can do in Photoshop with jpg's?
you should try a test print first though. Very rarely do the print and screen image match. If the test print isn't what you want, adjust to that, not just what you see on the screen - that could take you farther from the ideal print.

Does it lighten the entire document, or selected tones? On default settings, it's natural for colour shifts to occur.

Rather than levels/curves, there are other ways (in photoshop) to ensure colour conversion goes the way you want. I'm a bit rusty, but it would help divide up (and mix) the colours better.
