Unwanted line in low opacity picture

Discussion in 'Photoshop' started by nesredep egrob, Aug 26, 2004.

  1. A good friend requested a picture of his German Shepherd dog. It proved that he
    wanted to use it as a backgound,watermark on his correspondence to other doggie
    people.

    It was not too difficult to sort out the background in the digi picture and
    input another backgound. We were delighted with the colourful picture. That is
    when he mentioned the picture was supposed to be a pale background for his
    letters.

    OK I took the opacity down to 10% for one picture and 20% for the other. I then
    started in Word and input the picture there.

    At 10% there was three horizontal lines right across the whole picture. Pic is
    14 cm high and the first line is at 3 cm, next line at 10cm and the last at 12
    cm.

    The 20% opacity pic comes with lines only across the dog and none on the
    background which is a sea scape with some sea and mostly sky. The picture there
    is a jpg saved with the most possible compression. The lines start at the left
    edge of the dog and continues across the fur - it dissapears between the ears
    where the backgound is sky. The top line is 5 cm below the top, next is 10,5,
    then one at 14.5 and the final is at 17cm in a 20 cm high picture.

    Printing is done in a Kyocera Laser printer which normally does not give any
    trouble. There is no sign of the lines on the screen.

    The first picture is a large tiff picture and I have mentioned that the big
    picture is a mean jpg.

    Lines are very thin, probably just one pixel but very noticeable.

    Any suggestions, Please

    Ok - just a guess but are the most recent and up to date printer drivers
    installed?

    Are they the correct printer drivers for the operating system?

    Try the manufacturers website to see if updated printer drivers are there at
    the same time contact their support line

  4. Thanks for the info - that did the job and I learned to take notice of the
    rubbish on the test page - not rubbish at all - very good information.

    Again Thanks for taking the trouble.

    Thank you for your wonderful reply!

    I am quite pleasantly shocked

    Usually - and it is understandably if someone is seeking a solution under
    pressure - posters don't reply with thanks

    (I may have to sit down with a nice cup of tea to recover)

    ps Hecate - yay! this makes 2

  7. If I have gone off the norm, blame my parents, They would be 112 year old if
    they still lived today.
