Ok ... I designed a book cover in Adobe InDesign. The book is an anthology, Hellfire Lounge #4 ... The subtile "Refelections of Evil" is typed in InDesign, turned into layers. Yellow fill, no outline. I copy it, paste in place, fill it with black, add a thick black outline, send it behind the all yellow outlined text.
When I create a high-res PDF, there are no problems. When I create a PDF and bring it into Photoshop (to create a jpg), the yellow type vanishes. I'm left with big thick outlines, shadowing nothing. Upon closer inspection, I can't tell if the yellow letters have been deleted, or changed to black.
This has happened before. Sometimes the "shadow" layer comes forward and obscure the colored type which should be in the foreground. What gives?
For some reason, when I save the PDF as the "smallest file size" in Acrobat, I have no problems opening it. But then it's too low res to create a poster for promotional purposes.
