The 10 most common errors and how PitStop fixes them
Low resolution images
For print output, the image resolution needs to be higher than for viewing a PDF on a screen. Otherwise you will see jagged edges and artifacts in the image. PitStop Pro detects low resolution images in PDF files and gives you a warning.
Unintended RGB images in PDF files can cause unexpected results after processing. The images can be of low quality, the final printed color can be incorrect and there may even be a color shift. PitStop Pro checks PDF files for RGB objects and automatically converts them to CMYK if you want it to.
If a file that contains images or content that extend to the edge of the page, and it contains no or not enough bleed, white borders can appear after cutting the sheets. PitStop Pro checks PDF files for missing bleed. New in PitStop Pro can also automatically add bleed to a PDF file.
