Topic: Print Optimized to Screen Optimized

Hi Leonard and Aandi

Thanks for your help so far. As you both advice me, i am trying to get more
information on the above subject by reading PDF specification.

So, as Aandi and I continue to tell you, you need to review
the PDF specification to determine ALL of the things that YOU
consider to be "print optimized". Once you've done that, you can
then consider how each of them would be converted to "screen
optimized".

Unfortunately, i couldn't get clear idea by reading PDF specification on
this issue. If you don't mind please advice me, where i am making mistake or
please direct me to some other sources.



Thanks in advance
Shan

And again, let me express that this is NOT a trivial task...

Which is understandable....

Pretty big difference, but depending on the source document
that is not unusual.

A gross simplification of the use of ICCProfiles, but yes,
that's what is happening.

First, the use of ICCProfiles is NOT a requirement for "Print
Optimized" documents - you will find many that don't use it.

Second, there are other things that you are NOT seeing in
this file (or at least not in the parts you have shown me) that you
WOULD see in other "Print Optimized" documents.

So, as Aandi and I continue to tell you, you need to review
the PDF specification to determine ALL of the things that YOU
consider to be "print optimized". Once you've done that, you can
then consider how each of them would be converted to "screen
optimized".
