Poor chart and image quality from Report Builder/Server

I am getting really bad quality when exporting, particularly to PDF. This happens from both Report Builder and Report Server. Charts that sit in front of a background color have no anti-aliasing and look awful.

 

Can't find any applicable settings that I can adjust in either the Report Builder or the Report Server.

 

Example:

@Petebro turns out this looks like an issue with Adobe Reader but specifically with these reports. If I view in browser (like Chrome) it renders correctly.

Thanks for the update.

I don't think it's solved. Do I need to log a case?

 

It just seems to be these PDFs generated by Report Server that don't display correctly in Adobe Reader (I've tried multiple random computers).

 

However, it displays correctly in edge, chome, and other viewers?

Out of curriosity if you remove the background color does it have the correct anti-aliasing when exported?

It does actually. Seems to be an issue no matter what. Also happens with embbed images that have transparent background.

Can you post the screenshot from the render as well? I'll file a bug for an investigation just trying to add as much detail as possible. 

 

It seems like the simple version is just any chart with background color set?
