PDF resaved to PDF/A-1b results in background of page 1 image in dark blue

We are using your toolkit to remove metadata from PDFs and/or change the PDF to a Secure PDF or PDF/A. One of our clients had a document, that unfortunately I do not have permission to submit, where processing into a PDF/A altered background image of a text box on the first page. Processing this file to just remove metadata or output as a Secure PDF did not alter the PDF. Only output to PDF/A is the problem.

I’m unable to export our client’s sample PDF to a PDF/A from within
Adobe Acrobat Pro 9. Running their Preflight Profile for a PDF/A-1b
finds errors so I’m wondering if the Adobe’s inability to create the
PDF/A is related to Aspose producing this anomaly.

First question: Do PDF/A produced by Aspose pass “Verify Conformance” run from Adobe? It appears many I’ve been testing do not. I’m not sure how important Adobe’s “conformance” is for courts that require submission of PDF/A documents.

Second question: The resulting PDF/A is coming out 4 times as large as the original. Is there a way to compress?

Thanks,
Kristen

Hi Kristen,

Thanks for your inquiry.

Please note we follow Adobe standards in Aspose.Pdf API and we recommend Adobe Preflight for PDF/A compliance verification because Adobe is in the center of all which are connected with PDF.

Thanks. I’ve passed into on to my developer. Any thoughts on the blue background that appears when converting to PDF/A?

Hi Kristen,

Just wanted to pass on some info: This was NOT a problem in your version 8.8. Our product is using v 9.1 and our developer downloaded v 9.4 and both have the issue with the background changing color with creating a PDF/A.

Thanks,
Kristen
