I'm having some problems in illustrator, in the logo posted below there are white rings that appear around the splatter in the .ai file and the .pdf version. I went about creating this by placing the splatters on top of the letters then using the divide command, deleting that which wasn't on top of the letters and then going to merge in the pathfinder dialog box. If there was a better way to do this please let me know I have every step saved out so back tracking is no problem.
The file posted is the .jpg version and the white rings aren't appearing but if you can offer any advice thank you.
I dont realy understand your problem here, you seems to have successfully removed the white part around the splash on your pictures. Maybe a bit more explanation could help us. Give me a link to the AI file if you want me to check it.
