Light box around several graphics in file
on Nov 22, 2009 at 4:21:10 am

I posted this once, but had to sign up for an account so hopefully it only posts one time and not two.

I created this flyer in indesign:

It looks fine in both indesign and pdf but when I print, the two smaller bowls in the bottom of the document have a slight box around them where the psd file ends. none of the other graphics do, even though they were all imported from either ps or ai by the same method. It doesnt' appear on the screen either. I'm not sure what is causing it, so any help would be appreciated!

Thanks in advance,

What you're seeing could be the result of transparency interaction. That image of the two bowls appears to be the only thing in the layout where there is a drop shadow employed.

Check to make sure your page background color, the image, and your transparency blend space, (under the Edit menu), all match with respect to color space.

Also, you say it looks okay on-screen in ID, and in PDF, but prints wrong. Do you get the same bad result printing from both ID and from PDF?
