Ok, before I pull my hair out, I'm just going to ask this friendly community about my problem with PDF's. Please help me out, as I'm on a deadline...
I designed a brochure with layers, pictures, boxes and text in photoshop. It looks sharp and crisp... so I need to package it all up into a clean PDF, where I can put links and buttons, etc. This is where I encounter problems...
First, I flattened the image, saved as a jpg. and just like they advertise - 1 click and you have a professional looking .PDF file! Wrong. I could barely read the text is was so blurry... along with all the photos and boxes, etc...
So then I decided to NOT flatten it, leave the text as text, and just save the whole .PSD file as a .PDF. Then I opened up my spiffy new .PDF file and.... the text was clear, but the photos and boxes were all extremely blurry!!!
Why does it do that? Is there a setting I'm missing?? When I open the .PDF in photoshop, it still looks clean and crisp... but when I open it in Acrobat - BAM! Blurry and pixelated.
What am I doing wrong? Please help as soon as you can... thanks in advance,
