Check your downsampling settings in Distiller. Start by clearing them all.
See if this helps. Then try setting them all to zip 8 bit and ccitt for
grayscale and see if that makes a difference.

BTW - I am giving a talk at the IESTC meeting April 20th in Riverside CA on
Getting Good PDF. We are going to start with installing the right printer
driver, and walk thru to Distiller settings, fonts, getting good graphics,
etc. In front of you with a laptop and a projector.

For more info and to RSVP, see This should be a very good

| Tech-Whirlers,
| 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
| 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.
