View Full Version : Repeating Background Problem

09-24-2009, 04:14 PM
Brand new to the forum-excuse me if I'm in the wrong thread...
I am trying to place a gradient jpeg from Illustrator as a repeating background image but I cannot get rid of a thin white line between the tiles-I need a seamless smooth background.
Have tried flattening the image in Illustrator before exporting it but makes no difference Is this an Illustrator related issue? Am I dumb? It is as though the image has a 1px border. I've checked in Illustrator-it doesn't. Any ideas? (this thread started out with image related q's so I chose here to post...) ;)

Moved your post for you.

I'd recommend exporting the image to Photoshop then cropping (if necessary) and saving it for the web from there.

Exporting from Illustrator sometimes gives you more image than you want because of control points being outside the viewable image and other factors.
