  • 4. Word 2003 graphics problem when using acrobat distiller.
    I am currently running Word 2003 XP and using Acrobat Distiller 5.05. I am suddenly having a problem with my graphics showing a 1% screen when I pdf the document using distiller. I used Word 2000 for 3 years with no problems, no 1%screen. All of the graphics in my manuals are created in Photoshop 6, are tiff files, and are black and white. I've crused the adobe site to see if anyone else has seen something like this but got no hits. Any ideas? Is there a setting in 2003 I don't know about that compresses/modifies the graphics when they are inserted in or printed from Word 2003? Any help would be great!

Washout with background

Postby Qm9vYmxleA » Thu, 22 Mar 2007 12:37:03 GMT

When I insert a picture and check the box "washout" the gray in the picture 
does not show. If I do not check the box washout the picture is too bright. 

How can I "gradually" washout my picture so it does show the gray?

Right-Click the graphic, go to Format Picture & adjust the Brightness & 
Contrast settings to suit. The same tools are available on the Picture

I have designated/formatted a clipart as a washout on one page of my Word

behind the text. How can I gain access to the washout clipart to edit it?
