a place for zinesters - writers and readers
I use a very old DTP program, CompuWorks Publisher 3. I use Express PDF Printer to convert the page files to PDFs.
What I don't get is that the results are never consistent. For instance, one book cover I did has a lot of images added to it. When I view it in its original DTP form, it looks fine. Converted to PDF, you can see all sorts of white lines where the art was added. But the odd thing is that that is not consistent: I can convert the same file again, and the lines are either much less, or in different areas.
Added to that, when printed out, the lines do not show up.
Finally,today I had a perfect looking PDF file: no lines. I converted it to a JPG: lines all over the place.
This all makes no sense whatsoever. Has anyone else had this sort of problem?
The file: a jpeg of the original PDF. Notice the lines, which were not in the PDF
