Print a pdf with watermark opacity printing is not successful.

Kind support of VeryPdf,

I recently purchased “PDF Stamp Command Line Ver. 2.5”.

If matted print a pdf with watermark opacity printing is not successful.

Printing is dirty.

There is an error on the program or I mistake something?

My command line:

pdfstamp.exe -REG XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX -PDF “namefile.pdf” -AT "WATERMARK TEXT" -FT "Arial" -P9 -FS300 -opacity20 -R45 -C#FF0000



I have tried your command line in my system, everything is fine,

pdfstamp.exe -REG XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX -PDF D:\temp\Input_File.pdf -o D:\temp\out.pdf -AT "WATERMARK TEXT" -FT "Arial" -P9 -FS300 -opacity20 -R45 -C#FF0000

we suggest you may download the latest version of pdfstamp command line from our website to try again,



Thanks for your prompt response.

Unfortunately the problem persists.

After several attempts I realized that the problem occurs in connection with the resolution of the pdf file.

I attach a “rar” file containing two batch file and two PDF files (created on the fly just for the example) identical but with different resolution 200 dpi and 300 dpi.

You try my command line (“bat” file) in your system…

The opacity watermark on the pdf file with 300 dpi is displayed and printed well    (OK)

The opacity watermark on the pdf file with 200 dpi displays fine but the printing is dirty. the background of the watermark is not transparent.

Unfortunately, almost all of my pdf files a resolution of 200 dpi.

There is a solution to the problem?

Thanks again.
