My fantasy is that there has been a storm of protests from PDF users
   and Adobe is in panic mode, struggling to fix the problem they've just
   created. Does that sound like Adobe, or like a dream?

   > Which file format do you use for your images? Are all image formats
   blurry now?

   Yes, they are uniformly blurred.

   > Do you get this effect with all files with such images?

   Yes, suddenly all my new files are blurred like this.

   > Do you use RGB or CMYK? What happens, if you select the other colour

   I've always used RGB, so the first thing I tried was to use CMYK. That
   didn't help at all.

   > Do you know, if also other users with this Acrobat update get PDFs
   with blurry images?

   No, I don't know. I wish I did know.

   > When was this upgrade installed?

   Last Thursday night.

   > Does this relate only to FrameMaker, or also to Save as PDF from
   other applications, such as Word?

   I don't know. I wish I did know.

   Subject: [Framers] Save as PDF

   Here's a warning for users of "Save as PDF" -- Adobe has just
   "upgraded" Acrobat Pro DC to 2017.009.20058 and this has rendered the
   images it generates unusably blurry. I am dead in the water, unable to
   render my FM files into PDFs and thus update my online PDFs. Check this
   out and, if your new generated
   images have likewise been rendered unusably blurry, please protest. I
   have myself attempted to protest to Adobe, but since my subscription to
   Acrobat is an institutional subscription by way of a university, I do
   not have a personal registration number to offer and therefore there is
   no way for me to get past their "qualifications" people in India, to
   inform the Adobe technical team about this new glitch.]
