I have placed a high res .jpg image into pages for the header and footer of a document and it's printing pixelated. It's a vectorized file that I exported myself from Adobe Illustrator at 350dpi. Has anyone else had this issue? How can I fix it. Thanks!!

MacBook Pro (17-inch Early 2011), Mac OS X (10.7.5)

    Do you mean originally a vector file?


    Why rasterise it?


    OSX's native files are pdf, which wil retain all the vector information. Pages will convert both .ai and .eps files to .pdf for internal use.


    It is possible you have added some form of transparency to the jpeg file, this can cause it to be rendered at 72dpi which would account for the pixelation.

    Thank you so much Peter! Not sure why I didn't think to insert it as a .pdf instead of a .jpg, but that worked perfectly! Thank you!!
