    expanding a live traced image causes obvious divisions between paths, why?

      hi everyone

      here's another question i've not been able to solve; once again hoping that an illustrator with a wizard hat can explain this one to me.


      Here are two images.


      The first is of a live traced image. The second is the same image after being expanded, red arrows point to obvious changes in the appearance which i am trying to deal with.






      Here's the question


      Why does expanding the pattern cause obvious divisions between areas of different colouration?


      How do I remove this problem whilst still retaining the functionality of an expanded image?


      Probably very simple but I havn't had any luck tinkering with it.


      Thanks again
