Bands of vector gradient separated in PDF

[edit] I notice/remember I'm using an older version of PDFCreator (not sure which but it does offer an update) -- I suppose I should upgrade and check again. [/edit]

creating a PDF from a vector file which has a gradient fill:
the bands in the gradient are separated slightly leaving a thin white line between each band.

I attach:

  1. screenshot from Adobe Reader of PDF (zoomed in):

  2. macro-photo of quality printout on photo paper (note I increased contrast to make it more visible):



did you disable the JPEG compression? In current versions you can disable this under profile settings->pdf->compression.
In old versions the setting will also exist but might be located somewhere else.

Best regards,
