Topic: Anti-aliasing problem with images (Via Email), 2 Attachments

Hello,

I have problems with image anit-aliasing when images get resampled. I am trying to create a PDF from a Visio drawing that contains a rotated image. The image probably gets resampled due to the rotation. The result is an image with an wrong anti-aliasing. That is, there is a smooth color change at the border where there should not be one. The smooth color change would only make sense if the image would not have been rotated. This is particular visible at the border. The border looks inclined, but this is just an optical illusion coming from the wrong anti-aliasing.

This strange effect only happens with Acrobat 6; it worked fine with Acrobat 4. I used exactly the same settings. I used a very high image quality in the settings (downsampling to 600dpi); these settings do not have any effect on my problem, however. I even turned anti-aliasing on directly in the .options file.

Attached you find two screenshots to show the effect. Any Idea?

Thanks,
Shoobi

Two Passwords Are Better Than One: The Low-Down On PDF Security

For people who don't spend their time looking at PDF files in text editors*, PDF security is a sometimes misunderstood beast.

For example, those document restrictions that PDF files sometimes have -- no Printing, Content Copying, Page Extraction, etc -- are essentially useless unless the PDF also has a User Password.
