CC & 2014 not saving PDF file Correctly

  • Updated 4 years ago
When saving as Photoshop PDF in both Photoshop CC and now 2014 the conversion leaves "debris" around black elements on white backgrounds. I noticed this on red as well.

The white background is actually missing color (transparent) which when printed looks like smudge. I have to use Photoshop 6 in order to avoid this problem.

The first image is a screen shot of the PDF file was done on CC2014, the second on CS6.

I can see it on one monitor and not the other, so it may not show up for every monitor. (It shows on my Apple monitor : ))

That looks like you selected JPEG compression for the image data, which is lossy and will result in visual artifacts.

Thanks for the information, however it doesn't solve the problem... With the exactly same compression as CS6, 2014 leaves the visual artifacts.

What is the solution, beside give up on CC and revert to CS6... which is what I have done?

Check all of your settings closely. Other users are not seeing such a problem - and are getting the exact same results as in previous versions. All of our testing is also getting the same results as in previous versions (otherwise our automation would have complained as soon as it changed).

Checking settings is not a solution. Do you know what settings should be checked closely? If so, what should they be? The same settings are producing a different result from CS6 to CC2014... That can be seen from the images I sent.

Checking settings might be a solution if you made a mistake.
I can't know, since I have no idea what settings you used, or if the settings are identical, or if you made a mistake.

Ok... If you were having this problem, where would you look? How would you configure your settings to get rid of the problem?

First I'd look at the image compression settings under the PDF save settings, and make sure I wasn't using JPEG compression anywhere.
