Screen Artifacts on Transparent PSDs in Exported PDFs Can Be Deceiving…Most of the Time. by: Bob Levine | July 4, 2008 I've been using transparent PSD files from Photoshop since the release of InDesign 2.0. I still remember the first time I used one and experienced a feeling of wonderment I'd never felt before when laying out a page. I felt free from the rigors of faking backgrounds with full page TIF files or drawing clipping paths. Like many of the other features of InDesign that have made our lives just a bit easier I came to take it for granted until the release of CS3. First, let's take a look the issue. Below is a screenshot from InDesign CS3 with two identical files placed. If that was all there was to it, there wouldn't be an issue. Not a very pretty picture and certainly not something I would want a client seeing. So, why is this happening? Let's see what happens when we disable smooth images. What should you do? However, both of those choices can introduce stitching artifacts so you've just jumped from the frying pan into the fire.
