Bad Pdf graphics? Try turning off the resampling in distiller. This should
have a noticeable improvement without making your pdf the size of small
farm. If that doesn't do the job, turn off the compression. This should
make your graphics even better, but your pdf will be rather large.

Subject: my pdf graphics really bite (pls help)


I am creating a pdf from an existing user manual. I am using Acrobat
Distiller 3.01 and I cannot seem to produce good quality graphics when I
generate the PDF. I have tried, JPG, PNG, BMP, and GIF. I snap screens
with the ALT+PrntScreen function and then I crop and save them in PhotoShop.
I am using Microsoft Word as my document authoring tool

Has anybody learned a few cool tricks?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.
