Did you do the scanning? What resolution did you use? How are they being printed. YOu waould want to scan at a resolution equal to that of the output device, if possible, at the size they will be placed in ID, but an upper limit of 1200 PPI effective resolution, even for press, is probably adequate.
Thank you for the respond 1st of all. Thats the problem Im not having the paper filer or the originals.... Teachers wrote the recommendations, than print them, sign the paper files and scan them. Then sent them to me. Thats all I got. The thing is that the files are relatively Ok, imported in ID they also look ok... then when I want to export to interractive pdf the entire ID file they lool like sh*t

For interactive PDF I think the best you can hope for is to adjust the export settings to use JPEG 2000 compression, Maximum Quality, and 300 PPI resolution.
It's too bad they don't trust you not to alter what they've said so they could send you a PDF with live type.
It worked! Thank you so much!
The slight problem I got now is that the pdf is with size 26mb so not very handy for sending by mail. I try with 144PPI but the quality goes a bit lower. Any ideas how I can keep the quality and compressit just a little bit under 25mb which is the google limit?
Try changing the compression quality to High, or lowering the resolution to 200 (enough for digital printing), or both, and see if it's still acceptable. You are always going to have a tradeoff with size and quality.
Its all sorted man! cant thank you enough!
