How to Make Transparency Effects Work as Expected

If you specify a transparency setting to make the overlapping part of multiple objects transparent or to print the object with a drop shadow, the printouts may differ from what you expect. For example, the transparent part may have a different color, or a box may appear around the shadow and transparency on the printout. If these problems occur due to data in RGB color mode, following the procedures described below may help eliminate your problems.
NOTE
The following procedure is effective only when the data is a PDF file in RGB color mode.
1
Double-click the job in Command WorkStation on the imagePRESS Server.
[Job Properties] is displayed.
2
Select the [COLOR] tab, and then select the check box for [Optimize RGB transparency].
3
Click [OK].
Print a test sheet to check the finished result. If you are satisfied with the result, you can print the job.
