White Line Removal

Post by jsmith » Mon Oct 21, 2019 6:58 pm

Hello,

I downloaded the free trial because I'm trying to find the best way to remove white lines from a pdf. This video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_cont ... d0fHVSIthU) shows how to do it at 3:40 but it's rasterizing the entire page. I only need the image to be rasterized. I need the text to still be live text / selectable. Does anyone know if this is possible?

Thanks
Jeremy

That's an old video, there's a newer technique.
But we need to check what those white lines are. They are probably from transparency flattening.
Can you send me the files and I will try them and send you the results back.

I sent you a couple of processed samples back, can you let me know what you think.
They are a little larger as they have zip compression to avoid jpeg artifacts, but for course that is just configuration.

These look good. There will need to be some other settings applied, but the lines are gone. Please let me know what settings were used to remove these. Thank you Andrew.
