Decreased PDF Save Quality when Migrating from 18.x to 21.12


Recently I upgraded to Aspose.Slides for Java 21.12 after using 18.9 for some years, but I noticed that the save as PDF option is producing lower quality PDFs which is an issue for me. Settings im using are


I have also tried different options with those but result is the same. Attached is the original PPTX and the PDFs generated with 18.9 and 21.12 so you can compare the quality. Is there a way to increase quality in the new version? Thank you for your help.output with 18.9.pdf (218.5 KB)
output with 21.12.pdf (231.5 KB)

Thank you for reporting the issue. It will take me a while to test the case. We will reply to you as soon as possible.

I compared your results and found only very slight blurring of the entire contents of the PDF document. Could you please confirm that this is the problem? If the problem is different, please highlight it in the screenshot.

Hi Andrey!

thanks for the reply, yeah its a blurring of the whole document especially noticable in the text components. Is it expected? is there a way to increase quality at least to the previous version?
