I have a document that I am converting from MS Word 2007 to PDF using PDF Maker.

There is one image with transparency that is in a table that has a background color--this prints out fine from Word. I inherited this document thus I don't know the original type of graphic that was imported.

Whenever I convert to a PDF, part of the image is no longer transparent. 

I've tried varying the compression options--and turning off compression--and I'm not having any luck.

I'm open to any suggestions! :)
