Topic: PDF image quality problem

I am using OS X v 10.3.4, adobe acrobat 6.0.2 and appleworks 6.2.9. I'm having problems with image quality in PDFs I'm making. In this specific example, I have images I've create in appleworks that when I make the PDF, some of the lines are very rough. What is mysterious is that it was working fine before (but then I upgraded a heap of programs and OS software so I have no idea whats changed). The portion of the images that have the rough lines are PICT files embeded in the figures.

An example is compare


the first one is where it all turned out very nice, the second looks like crap. I haven't changed anything really with the file (and a heap of other such files also do the same thing, worked perfect before, very rough now).

Help!!! These are figures for a scientific paper and they are unacceptable in their current form.

I have tried playing around with various settings to no avail. It was working beautifully till I upgraded software and now its gone pearshaped. I even tried reinstalling acrobat but that didn't help.


Thanks heaps

Why eBooks and mobile devices don't (yet) pose an existential threat to the PDF

Continuous upheaval is what makes watching the technology industry so exciting. David vs. Goliath battles are waged every day, with startups often winning against much larger businesses. For years and years, many have predicted the decline of the PDF given its age and perceived disadvantages. Today, with the PDF losing ground in emerging areas like mobile and eBooks, the calls for its ultimate demise are growing louder.
