Hi everyone. I'm having a problem CS5 with opacity/transparency
when I apply a transparency effect to one element in a design, it seems to overlay the entire design with the light ghost of transparent white. If I delete the element that I've applied the transparency to, the ghost disappears and everything goes back to the normal color/contrast.
It even happens to the design if I apply the transparency to a master and apply that master to a normal page.
I'm working in layers and its doesn't seem to matter. The type of file that the image is doesn't matter either.
I can't seem to figure this out. Anyone have any thoughts?
Thanks for your help...
I had the same problem. Found this:
If you apply transparency to objects on a spread, all colors on that spread convert to the transparency blend space you’ve chosen (Edit > Transparency Blend Space), either Document RGB or Document CMYK, even if they’re not involved with transparency. Converting all the colors results in consistency across any two same-colored objects on a spread, and avoids more dramatic color behavior at the edges of transparency. Colors are converted “on the fly” as you draw objects. Colors in placed graphics that interact with transparency are also converted to the blend space. This affects how the colors appear on‑screen and in print, but not how the colors are defined in the document.
Depending on your workflow, do one of the following:
