    Resolution Problem With PDFs

    Abbie+
      I've been making a VERY large graphic in Fireworks. I then paste it into Word and scale it to about 25% of the original size (maybe less). It looks really quality in Word, but when I save it as a PDF and view it in Adobe Reader, the image looks low quality/fuzzy. What can I do about this?

          The dimensions of the image are unrelated to the resolution. You
          probably need to increase the PPI of the image. You can do that by using
          the Modify > Canvas > Image Size feature. Not that Fireworks was
          developed for creating images for the Web rather than print. You best
          choice would be to use Illustrator for this kind of work.

            In Acrobat, click on...

             

             

             

            Edit – Preferences – Convert To PDF – Microsoft Office Word – Edit Settings – Adobe PDF Settings – High Quality Print

             

            Although you're not printing, the images will be high resolution when converted to pdf.
