Maximum quality Automatic (JPEG) compression with downsampling to 300dpi for images over 450dpi should maintain exceptionally high quality for photographic images using JPEG compression and ZIP compression for vector-like images (such as screen shots).
Alternatively, maximum Automatic (JPEG2000) compression will yield similar quality at a slightly larger PDF file size. - Dov > -----Original Message----- > From: framers-bounces at lists.frameusers.com [mailto:framers-bounces at > lists.frameusers.com] On Behalf Of > Joseph > Sent: Friday, February 13, 2009 8:57 AM > To: framers at lists.frameusers.com > Subject: Acrobat Distiller Settings for Images > > Hi All, > > When I print a framemaker book, I first save it as a PS file and then use > acrobat distiller to transform the PS file into a PDF.
