  • Optimise This!

    Can anyone give me some clear idea about ensuring I am sending my PDF's to print using the optimum settings.

    I have recently moved from a job where I was a member of a team of designers and I took for granted that the Adobe Acrobat settings were all correct. However, now I am wholly responsible for what goes out to print - and it worries me a little - the company I am now with are a little loose with a lot of what goes out and I need to tighten up and I am a little wary of the existing settings, without knowing what's best.

    Cheers

    Steve

    generally here we keep res at 300 dpi

    and use no compression whatsoever, ok its a big fiile sometimes
    but if you cant email it you can put it on a dvd cd or flashpen
    post it or take personally to printer
    printers DO like that believe it or not

    ps

    can i have your job please mine sucks

              Are you talking Distiller settings? Anyways... the whole shebang's covered here:

              Download it, print it out, bind it into something, read it several times, keep it in your top drawer.

                Dammit, I'm going senile...
                Print it on a colour photocopier if you can. There's some useful transparency stuff in there.
                Also, your "Optimise" title worries me. Optimising a PDF, in Adobe-speak, is reducing the file size for online proofing, [under Advanced Editing menu> Print Production. Don't confuse this setting with Press Quality settings. Some people have more success with the Reduce File Size option, [forget where, look in the Acrobat menus]; for online proofing file-size reduction.

                  Nice one Frailer

                  Very useful, though I have to admit your second message completely lost me. But I'll have a good read of the PDF your linked, cheers

                    Don't want to leave any confusion. When you can, have a look at the Acrobat Help. It should explain "Optimise PDF". It's just that the term's a bit confusing. Adobe mean to "bring the file size down to send online". "Press Quality" is a better qualuty for high-end printing.
                    Hope this hasn't caused more confusion.
