I can create a pdf file by selecting Print and then the pdf button. The software I use to do this is no longer available to me. I used this software to submit my pdf file with a test and 70 pictures to an on-demand printer. Before accepting my file, I am required to pass the pdf through the on-demand's filter software that check all pictures have a resolution over 300 DPI. All the pictures passedd and met the on-demand standard.
I now find I cannot get this pdf software now, so I used my Word 2010 software to do a .doc SAVE AS to PDF. When I passed this new pdf file though the on-demand filter, it would many pictures that did not meet its standard. Upon research the Word document is 147MB and the first pdf vendor generated file was 80MB after conversion. When I passed this same Word doc file through the Microsoft 2010 SAVE AS, the pdf file wa 20MB. The smaller file sounded good, BUT with the Microsoft Word to PDF conversion is loses picture quality and does not meet the on-demand standard.
Can I change any parameter in Word 2010 to not reduce the quality of picture resolution in the doc file? Or can you recommend a Word to PDF file converter that does not destroy the resolution of the embedded jpegs in Word?
