    Trouble exporting a pdf with correct resolution

    BillyBoylan

      I am really confused.

       

      When I export a pdf from inDesign using any of the (print) options, and view it in bridge (meta data and preview area), the dimensions are incorrect from what the specs my printer supplied me, even though the inches are correct in the document set up.

       

      As an example, a postcard in Inches, 4.1” x 6.1” and when looking at the meta data using bridge it says the 439 x 289 (pixels I guess) and should be 2135 x 1435. It also doesn't display the resolution in bridge for the pdf which needs to be 350 dpi. Now if I export a jpeg, it has all the correct specs that I need. Am I exporting incorrectly?
