White horizontal lines on photographs when I print from Pages to .pdf on the Mac.

When I print to PDF from the Pages software on my Mac, the photographs show up with white horizontal lines, evenly spaced.

IS this with ALL images??

Where are you sourcing the images from?? What format are they PDF, JPG etc? and what resolution??

These are .jpg images, very high resolution. I insert them in my document in Pages (iWork). It happens every time I convert a Pages file to .pdf. They don't show up when I print, but it's very frustrating having on them on the screen, because I take a lot of screen shots.

Are you using the Print to PDF option within the OSX Print dialog box?

Or are you using the Export to PDF option?

If trying the EXPORT option, test and see if the Print to PDF option inside the Print box produces the same effect.

I had been using Print to PDF. I just tried Export to PDF and the result was the same.
