    Default trapping q.

    ID CS

    I have a photoshop image of a person wearing a white jacket on a transparent
    background. His arm overlaps a text box (black text with a blue background
    color).

    I've exported the pae as a PDF and send it off to my printer (who does not
    have InD). He says that the image is not being trapped properly; in fact the
    text box is being affected by the entire image box. The text is blurring
    slightly wherever the image box (not necessarily near the image, but even at
    large transparent sections) overlaps the text.

    What do I do when exporting the pdf to remedy this?

    Any printer who does not have a copy of InDesign at this point isn't worth working with. (Unless you like the feeling of butting your head against a wall.) Time to go shopping for another printer. It's not your job to educate the printer.

    It sounds as if your printer is seeing the effects of rasterisation of the
    text where it overlaps the transparent image. It also sounds as if he is
    looking at it at full page on his monitor. If he zoomed in to a high
    magnification this blurring effect should disappear - as it should when
    printed.

    Alex,

    I've been dealing with similar problems - I know one quick fix that generally works is to pull the text to the front.

    I'm actually working on a similar problem now. If I find something else helpful I'll post an update later.

    In my case, the problem was solved when I changes the clipping path of my
    image to Alpha Channel

    give it a shot
