I have MS-Word 2003 and need to transform a .doc file into a pdf.
For this reason, I installed PDFCreator and tried to print to the virtual printer.
The pdf file is created, but observing the result I can notice an evident loss of quality in the figures contained in the document.
The most evident is in an image with has a greyscale gradient, which is transformed in two half: uniform grey where it is dark, and full white where it is lighter.
What is stranger is that the text is rendered perfectly.
What it could be? I thought I could fix it by twiddling some pdfcreator parameters, but I wasn't successful. Could it be a problem with ghostscript?
Does anybody have any suggestions to fix it? Or -- any other pdf virtual printer (free) which is known to work well?
