I'm trying to export map using ArcGIS. Here's how the map looks in the layout view in Arc, and that is how i would like to keep it : enter image description here

And this is how the map looks after exporting it as JPEG: enter image description here

Can some one advise me please why the symbols are faded on the Baringo map and totally disappeared on the Kitui map, also why the colors, legend, and the map in general is faded?

I have tried PDF, JPEG, and PNG all give this same result. Also the symbols of the fieldwork sites on the Kitui map is not showing at all when exporting to any format !!

    If you export the same map to PDF as a test do you see the same issue? JPG is a lossy format so what parameters did you use when exporting it? – PolyGeo Nov 17 '16 at 7:00

  • I should add also that the symbols of the fieldwork sites on the Kitui map is not showing at all when exporting to any format !! – nour Nov 17 '16 at 7:26
  • What happens when you eliminate a few layers from your map, so that you can focus on resolving why you are experiencing just one of the several symptoms that you are reporting? – PolyGeo Nov 17 '16 at 7:33
