Will try your suggestion now and report on the result here.
The Image Link above shows how the images appear in the pdf at 100% zoom level. Plus:
1) no improvement when changing the zoom level or screen resolution
2) the image has never been resized
3) all images in the PowerPoint file are equally affected
4) in PowerPoint, these same images look very good
Have you tested this issue with other PowerPoint files?
Also let me know the steps followed to convert the file?
In the mean time open Acrobat, navigate to Help menu -> Repair the Installation. Also, check for the updates under the help menu.
Same problem for me. Followed your instructions exactly. Photos HD in PPT are now low quality in PDF
same issue, tried the fix with no luck. Have been re-screen shot-ing the needed images again that I used in the PPT and am pasting them into the PDF version... not fun
We have a PPT PowerPoint file (MS Office 2007) which includes a couple of screenshots and other images, all in excellent/sufficient quality, but once we try to save the file as a PDF, the image quality decreases dramatically.
What is the ppi (pixels per inch) of your images? Were they resized after putting them into PowerPoint? Bigger or smaller? What software did you use to take the screenshots? Where did the other images come from? Did you copy them in or insert them?
When you make the PDF, do you use the Acrobat tab in PowerPoint?
Hello. The latest update to the MS Office site fixed this absurd bug. I was experiencing the same problem described above before the fix but after the latest updates, PDFs are again looking as they should (when quality is set to "High" in PPT). For details on the latest PPT update –16.15 (Build 180612)– please see here:
