Hairline white line around images in PDF for press

CS3, Windows XP
I searched the forum and didn't find this exact question, so..., I place PSD file in ID. When I export to PDF for the press run, I get a thin hairline white box around the photo. It only seems to happen when the placed image is over a gradient. It also only happens on PDF files for press run - either Press Quality or PDF/X-1a:2001. When I export to "Smallest File Size" it looks fine. I have the border of the image set to 0 and the color to None.
And it only seems to happen sometimes. A month or so ago I created a similar piece using different photos, but the same gradient background and it looked and printed fine.
Thoughts?

The stitching and a grey box was showing up on my press proofs. The printer suggested that I flatten the image before I send it to them.
Sometimes I see in on screen and sometimes I don't, but my printer says they see it every time and that it will show up on the proof. I've been trying several different PDF exporting options in ID. We are getting the proofs done correctly, but there's only one guy at my printer that can get the file corrected. I'm not sure exactly what he is doing, but one of the people I deal with suggested that he was opening the file in PS, flattening it again, and exporting to PDF, again.
He's the boss and not alway around, so I'm trying to figure out how I can get file exported correctly.
Thanks for your help.

  • Help!!  White line around image with placed in Illustrator from Photoshop, possible CMYK issue?

    I have a CMYK file, outlined product, that looks perfect in Photoshop.  When I place the image into Illustrator, it shows up with a thin white line around parts of the product (fyi - it shows up on a print as well). I have tried to place an RGB file and it does not have the white line around the product.    I assume it has something to do with it being CMYK, but I'm at a loss on how to fix this.  I'm desperate for any help.

    Okay, please refer this image and change the option within Ai General preferences. Uncheck the option Anti-Aliased artwork.

  • DW8-Fine white line around images

    DW8 - On some of my images there is a very fine white line
    around the edge when the site is previewed in the browser. The site
    has an almost-black background color (181714), and I use the same
    color in making the image backgrounds (in Photoshop CS), for
    example roll-over images. How do I get rid of this?

    You wouldn't set this in the Property inspector, you'd set it
    in the CSS,
    and the only time you need it would be when the image is
    within a link:
    a img { border:none; }
    Also, you wouldn't expect this effect to produce a white
    border - it would
    be a blue one (by default).
    I'm guessing the fine white line is part of the image (it's
    easy to
    undercrop when the canvas is white).
    > I've noticed
    > that in tables, having nothing there is "bigger" than
    specifying a zero.
    If you have nothing there, you will get the default value for
    the all of the
    table attributes, which is often (but not always) not zero.

  • White line around image

    Hi everyone,
    I keep getting a white line appear around images I save in
    Photoshop and then insert into Dreamweaver. It happens when I also
    save text with a transparent background. The text has a very faint
    white line around it. Why is this?

    Where are you seeing this, in PS? or DW design view or in a
    browser?
    When you insert your pics in an HTML page with 0 border, do
    you still see
    the border?

  • White outline around images in pdf

    Ok I've searched google for help and have not found any tips. I'm using CS4. I'm creating a document in indesign. I've placed some psd files into the document. In photoshop they are an object with a transparent background.
    Now they look fine when printing and when viewing in indesign. But when i output as a ps from indesign, then take it into distiller it creates a pdf with a white outline around the image. Why is this happening? See attachement. Outline is on the bottom, it's a really thin line.
    I do file print, select adobe pdf 8.0 then i pick the postscript option, then hit print to save the pdf. I've tried changing from CMYK to leave unchanged for color options. Please help!!!

    Try searching for the term stitching. That should give you plenty.
    In short, what you're seeing is the result of your archaic workflow causing the transparency to be flattened. The preferred and recommended method for PDF creation is through direct export, maintaining all transparency in the document.

  • Thin white line around image

    Using CS3 with Vista.  I have a postcard that has a background image on the bottom layer, another (overlapping) image in the next layer, and type on the top layer.  The image on the middle layer is showing very minor white edges (stitching (?) I guess) around parts of it.  It also printed with this same slight, white jagged edge.  This middle image has an effective resolution of 300 ppi.  I read in Knowledgebase about turning off anti-aliasing but when I do it still shows this white edge on screen and the type seems to marginally get slightly jagged.  It was so minor that the client was fine with it but I am curious as to what was causing it and if it's something I can remedy in the future.
    Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks.
    Gordon

    Gordon has sent me his original files, and there are a couple of issues.
    The first is with the background image, a 400 x 400 pixel jpeg that's been stretched to fit the rectangular sahpe, and then made 50% opaque. The effective resolution is 97 x 60 ppi, which as a ghosted background is probably marginally usable, particularly if printed on digital equipment, but is hardly optimal. I'd personally do the opacity reduction in Photoshop and save a new flattened version as a .psd for use in a background because it reduces the complexity of the file, but there's no rule that says one must do things that way. I simply prefer to use transparency only when it is required to achieve the effect.
    The larger issue is with the middle image, which is a transparent .gif of a glass with a margarita. This is 1238 x 1667 pixels and has an effective resolution of 349 ppi, more than adequate for print, but it looks to me as if it was up-sampled at some point from a web image (not unlikely since it's a .gif) as the image is made of obvious square blocks that look like the original index color pixels -- a classic example of why you can't simply take a small image and upsample for print. Around the stem of the glass are a large number of white pixels left behind when the image was removed from its original background, which are showing as the faint white lines he described. These pixels could be removed using a detect edges clipping path in ID, but doing so leaves a very jagged edge. A drawn path in Photoshop is much cleaner, but the pixels in the rest of the image are still readily apparent and the image probably isn't really worth the effort to repair if a better quality can be found to begin with.

  • White lines around texts with object effects applied

    I am having a persistent problem with InDesign's output of PDFs when I have applied object effects to text boxes.
    When I use an effect—such as emboss (shown in samples) or outer glow—on a text box, the PDF renders it with white lines around the text boxes (sometimes with more than one).
    See the attached samples; the boxes are clearly visible with a 3rd party PDF viewer, such as Skim; less so with Acrobat Pro, but still there. It's there when I open the PDF in Photoshop, as well.
    I've tried playing with transparency flattening settings, and with merging the layers into a single layer. No help.
    The sample shown has an emboss effect applied, transparency flattening set to high resolution (ignoring style overrides), and a single merged layer.
    Any help?
    In Acrobat Pro:
    In Photoshop:
    In Skim:

    Thanks so much, Bob.
    My printer requires that I use the PDF/X-1a:2001 standard for PDF export, which means that it must be Acrobat 4 or later compatibility.
    Also: I don't see how to NOT flatten, when exporting PDF for print; the options for flattening are "low resolution," "medium resolution," or "high resolution"—but there is not an option to NOT flatten. Do you know a work-around for this?

  • After importing pictures they became grey with doted white line around

    I have imported pictures (RAW CR2 format) from my camera hundreds of times and they all went well. But this time the only the import worked well (I saw the preview when each picture was imported). Then Iphoto asked if i would like to delete the pictures on the camera after import. I deleted them. But then when I should take a look at the pictures they were grey with doted white lines around all of them. When I chose a picture and check the properties I can see that the pictures use normal space. I tried to drag one picture to a directory in the finder but this didn´t work either. The export doesn't work either. When I scroll fast among the pictures I can see them for a short period but when I stop scrolling they will turn grey with doted white line around. Whats wrong? and how to solve?
    system: iPhoto11 and Lion.

    The ! turns up when iPhoto loses the connection between the thumbnail in the iPhoto Window and the file it represents.
    Option 1
    Back Up and try rebuild the library: hold down the command and option (or alt) keys while launching iPhoto. Use the resulting dialogue to rebuild. Choose to Rebuild iPhoto Library Database from automatic backup.
    If that fails:
    Option 2
    Download iPhoto Library Manager and use its rebuild function. This will create a new library based on data in the albumdata.xml file. Not everything will be brought over - no slideshows, books or calendars, for instance - but it should get all your albums and keywords back.
    Because this process creates an entirely new library and leaves your old one untouched, it is non-destructive, and if you're not happy with the results you can simply return to your old one. .

  • White lines around figures

    Captured ftg from DVD created from digi-beta from original 35mm film. Editing a 4 minute trailer but certain clips (30%) show short curved white lines around heads, figures, etc. Sort of like zebra but not? One clip has first frame with horizontal white lines top to bottom. Same clip shows up as green screen in QT file I made. Also a few freeze frames for a second or two. 70% of trailer is fine. Thought maybe the capture had wrong settings?

  • White lines around flash embed

    I've created a gif animation and saved it as a flash doc. When I put it into a GoLive page, it has a one pixel white line around the top and one side (the side sometimes switches depending on the animation). This is not in my animation files and it prevents me from using a black background or butting another image on top of it.
    Any thoughts on what's causing it and how to get rid of it?

  • How do I get rid of faint white boxes around images?

    Some files that I have printed have faint white boxes around images.  The images were saved in photoshop with transparent backgrounds that seem to be showing up faintly in the final printed image.  Does anyone know how I can get rid of this problem?

    signspec,
    What happens if you print from Illy?
    Your printer (driver) may be overly helpful and performs a bit of colour management all by itself. You may have a look and disable any such management in the printer (driver) options.

  • Annoying white line around artwork

    There's a strage thin white line around a black artwork, it's easier to see it with red background.
    It's hard to see it so i zoomed in.
    Here's the Appearance panel with this object selected:
    How do I get rid of it?
    Illustrator CS5
    Windows 7

    Set your black artwork to either:
    Overprint and view in Overprint Preview or Multiply (in Transparency).
    That way you won't see the white lines.
    On the other hand, although they won't show up in print, those white lines (when viewed in CMYK preview) can sometimes be a useful indicator that an overprint is required.

  • White lines around PNGs when exported to PDF

    I am having the problem that imported images frequently have white bars around the outside of the image when the document is exported as a PDF. Looking at the two images currently affected I notice they are both PNG images. I fixed the image that was just rectangular in shape by just turning it into a JPEG as I did not require the use of transparency, but the second object is a different matter and I require the use of PNGs transparency. These lines are not present when in indesign normally.
    The line is only noticable in one spot where a black rectangle meets the black background (only the top of the rectangle is visible against the black as one side is covered and the other side is out of the crop area) so I am not certain if this is the only spot it is occuring.
    The line is not even a straight white line!
    I have had this problem before with lines appearing around objects which should not be there, as well as objects not appearing as they do in inDesign, any advice for fixing this?

    Ok guys I don't know what was wrong with my old TIFF image, but I swapped it out for a TIFF image which had a gradient fading from black to transparent as opposed to a straight black box and now the line is not there *shrug* it seems quite weird to me since I made sure the image was correct by cutting off the top segmant of the image where the trouble was.... but I dunno....
    The exact same image in illustrator or photoshop showed up fine.. so I cannot understand what the problem was
    EDIT: GAK!! its back on a new image I just put into the document same problem except it is on all sides of the black rectangle... *shakes fist* bah I will put another bloody gradient around the stupid thing....which by the way worked and the gradient was placed on the bottom layer so I dont see how it could be the image? I think this is proving that the problem is with acrobat (or saving from indesign) not the image...
    NOTE: I would rather not post the files for various reasons
