# text gets slightly bold when adding graphics [duplicate]

Why are some pages in my PDF coming out bold?

I have problem with text on the page with a graph, it gets slightly thicker. The text on the next page without graph is normal.

Hopefully you are able to see the difference:

The culprit are these lines:

 \begin{center}
\includegraphics[width=1.0\columnwidth]{times}
\end{center}


The problem is well described in here too: http://www.latex-community.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=45&t=7533

If you don't want to follow a link then essentially, a possible answer from there:

"This is usually caused by alpha channels in included graphics.

Remove the alpha channel in the included graphics (something I cannot help you with)"

Additional question within an answer - how?

• You could use Imagemagick to remove the transparency, using convert image.png -background white -flatten +matte image_new.png (taken from studio.imagemagick.org/pipermail/magick-users/2006-August/…).

• yes indeed, however here I found working solution ;-) Font returns back to normal in Adobe Reader. Mar 24 '12 at 5:57
• Why don't you add your answer to the existing question instead of opening a new one?

• I believe here the name better reflects the problem, additional tags can be added. Plus here thread is clean. I don't mind however at all if you insist. Mar 24 '12 at 6:14
• @Jake I believe you should include your convert answer into the thread you linked and this thread can be closed then.
