I am a Photoshop novice. A digital artist designed my book's cover; now I need to upload it but can't figure out the right settings. CreateSpace limits PDF size to 40 MB. My PS file right now is 83 MB.
My current settings are:
Again, I have no idea what I'm doing, but am a good listener.
Thank you for your assistance.
Note: I just "flattened" the file, then saved at High Quality Print with a compression quality setting of Maximum. The file is now 9.5 MB. It looks the same to my eyes as the 113 MB PS file image.
Question: When I uploaded my cover a few days ago (an earlier version of the cover), the PDF saved at 39 MB, so I wonder if a 9.5 MB PDF suggests a quality that is too low.
