Missing lighting effect with PFD for print

Recommended Posts

I applied a lighting effect in Affinity photo, and when I place the image into Publisher i can see the effect.

When, I export it for print as a pdf the lighting effect disappears. Any suggestions?

Some screenshots of the original and the exported PDF would help. But purely as a guess it will be related to your export settings. So a screenshot of your Export dialog, and of the More... dialog during Export, would also help.

Some forms of PDF do not support transparency, and though others support it the effect would require rasterization, so the details of the effect and of the export options are critical to answering the question.
