I have a document that has a single TIFF/PSD per page, 35 in total. Each image has been scaled to the others in InDesign, which is why I can't just save out of the original linked files in Photoshop. Each page/image needs to be exported as a PNG with a transparent background. The products have a drop shadow created in the original file. When I export them out of InDesign as jpgs, this issue doesn't arise. But as PNGs, most of the images are exporting with a black line in the drop shadow. Not the same length or width, that changes image to image. I tried several attempts and even which file gets this mystery line seems to randomize.
I checked the usual suspects, looking at the frame and the contents, accidental strokes, I also removed all guides and margins. I tried on a different computer as well. Same crappy result.
Using InDesign 18.0 on an iMac (24-inch, M1, 2021) running Monterey 12.6.
That line looks like it corresponds with the margin. Can you set the margin to 0 an see if it still happens?
Thanks for responding I thought of that too, so I did put the margins at zero and tried again. Same result.
Unfortunately, I cannot share that stuff as it's work for a client and the images are embargoed. It's also why I cropped those screenshots so tight
Will be difficult to troubleshoot without an example. Have you tried exporting a PDF/X-4 and opening the PDF in Photoshop?
The black line doesn't appear when I export an X4
