I apologize if this is a rookie question, I'm a photoshop guy, so vector based stuff is a bit greek to me...
I've got a client who creates geneology charts using Excel, they're mostly vector based, though he also imports some jpegs/gifs. He then exports as a pdf and sends to me for printing. In the past I've just rasterized the files and printed from Photoshop. No problems, and the results were acceptable. Recently I tried printing one of the charts straight from Acrobat so I could send the vector data to the printer- the difference was night and day! There's no way I can go back to printing from photoshop now.
However, there's a problem. The type looks great, but there are lines appearing around the inserted images. They're visible in Acrobat as well as in the print.
When opened in photoshop the lines are visible as the edges of the images, but once I flatted the file they vanish all together.
If the problem lies in the creation of the files, I might just let it be, and go back to Photoshop. However if there's something I can do in Acrobat to remedy the problem, I would be most happy! I've attached a couple of screenshots- on the left is the unflattened file in photoshop, on the right, the line as it appears in Acrobat.
Thanks for any input!
