strange storry idf you ask me:=)
You have an exampel?
Did you try to work with native linked files, I mean no jpg, tiff or EPS but all native Photoshop files?
The majority of the files we receive are from outside sources. We have in-house preflighting as a courtesy to our clients before we print since our displays range from the very small to the very large. I haven't seen it happen with PSD files but we're too big to convert all the images we receive to PSD files. Who knows if that would even be a fix.
I'm re-enacting the issue for you so you have a visual.
This image is during preflight/before the file has been saved:
This is where the image ends up after saving, closing and reopening:
And the file jumping around is always the sam sort of file, like is it always a jpg or tiff or eps?
Or is there no logic to it?
And dit you test a problem file by resaving the imaage to a native Photoshop? If so did you have the same result?
I never have seen this before, but we always use native files.
Can it posssibly be that the placed images have at some time been resized after the Illie files was closed and before it was reopened)?
I have seen this sort of thing happen occasionally, but only when images were linked and had been resized.
The top left hand corner of the image will remain where it was but drastic scaling can produce results like you show us.
How did you embed the images - automatically at the moment of saving the EPS perhaps together with transparency flattening?
Or earlier in the process manually by hitting the Embed-button.
Looks like the image got cropped - really, not only by applying the mask. This can only happen when you flatten transparency.
there is no logic behind it. it has happened on all of the computers we use. the only fix i have found is to fix the positioning and save it on a different computer than it was saved previously.
nope. these images were either embedded with the embed option in the links palette or were received with the links already embedded by the client. the only bad thing about this is we donmt know whats causing it so we cannot prevent it. thats really what i would like to figure out.
