Has anyone experienced problems with their cover having lines of extremely high resolution, even though they set it much lower?
It's been created through In Design, and the exported PDF, a computer printout and viewing onscreen all look lovely (except for those little white hairlines they tell us not to worry about).
The export was set to a maximum of 300ppi, but when I upload here, it shows that some areas are well over 700. When I click to get the dynamic screen I can drift a cursor over, the only problem is around the main title. It's a 45pt font, with effects such as shading, glow, bevelling etc. When I download a PDF with red marks to show the errors, they are not only on the letters of the font itself (that seems the same moving the cursor around, too; there are areas within the dotted red box that are fine - it's only the red bits themselves that seem a problem). I've attached a screenshot below: weirdly, as you can see, there's a dotted red line along the top where nothing is happening at all. It's just sky - the same image as under the whole front cover.
Speaking to a graphic designer friend, she has suggested:
a) looking at 'Links' to see if that sheds any light.
b) making the font an image (though, as I said, some of the problems seem to be beyond the writing)
c) exporting the whole cover as a jpeg, putting it back onto the In Design template, then exporting again as a PDF (though my IT guy is worried there'd be a drop in quality. He's thinking of perhaps making a jpeg of just the front cover background image plus the title, then inserting that back into the rest of the cover on the template - but he's still bothered).
Has anyone else had this problem, and did you find a fix? Many thanks in advance!
