Cover resolution too high in places

    As IngramSpark writes in the beginning of every downloaded proof file is, that these lines will not show up in the final print.

    I hope this helps you.

    Hi Erik - thanks. Yes, I realise the red marks won't show when it prints, but the error message says that because those areas are nearly 800ppi, it "can lead to the book being delayed while processing, or can cause delays or errors during each print order... An automated attempt will be made to downsample the images to the desired resolution to address this issue. However, the correction for this error can not be 100% guaranteed, and could lead to unintended results."

    And I'd have to "assume responsibility for any quality issues that may appear in my printed book" if I want to proceed - presumably financial responsibility, plus it would obviously put a bookshop off ordering again. Even if the proof comes out well, I wouldn't want to take the risk with subsequent potential orders.

    As I said, it was exported from In Design with a maximum of 300ppi set. Very confusing.

    I use the PDF/X-1a:2001 setting in InDesign and it works well for me.

    When you order your first book (as physical proof) you will probably not see any lines.
