    Exporting an Indesign PDF to JPEG causes logo dropshadow to have white box--why?

    doss79 Level 1

      Hi all,

      I have an Indesign document with a logo in the header. This logo (a linked .png file) has a dropshadow applied to it using Indesign's drop shadow fx (the drop shadow was not created with the graphic in a graphics program). When I export this document to a PDF, everything appears fine. However, when I then convert this PDF to a .JPEG, something happens to the logo--a white box is shown around the logo. I am guessing it's a transparency issue that is causing this white box. If so, why? Why do I get this "white box" around the logo when I export a PDF to a jpeg?

       

      Thanks for any clues anyone can provide to this strange phenomenon.
