Topic: Pixelated images with quark ps file to distiller

We're using quark 6.5 and distiller 7.0.

We have setup quark to save as a post script file into a watched folder.

All quark pdf settings are set to do not compress, no downsampling, no OPI,

Distiller is set to pdf in pdf x1a 2001. The result is low res images in the pdf. It appears as if there is alot of JPEG artifacts. Using another setting for PDF where compression is off or set to ZIP does not help either. I cannot see where in the process the images get compressed because clearly somewhere along they are.

I tried with teh same image files in an indesign document and produce a pdf with x1a 2001 and it comes out flawless. I would switch to indesign however our designers are not familar with it.

If anyone could help or if screen shots of settings could help let me know.

Thakn You Kindly.

Two Passwords Are Better Than One: The Low-Down On PDF Security

For example, those document restrictions that PDF files sometimes have -- no Printing, Content Copying, Page Extraction, etc -- are essentially useless unless the PDF also has a User Password.
