For your convenience there are several sets of predefined settings for creating PDF files. These
settings are designed to balance file size with quality, depending on how the PDF file is to be used:
• Default job option - is intended to be useful across a wide variety of uses, possibly at the expense of a
larger output file. All color and grayscale images are downsampled at 72 dpi, monochrome images at 300
dpi; subsets of all fonts used in the file are embedded; and all information is compressed. PDF files
created using the Default job option are compatible with Acrobat 4.0 (and later).
• Screen job option - intended for PDF files that will be displayed on the World Wide Web or an intranet,
or that will be distributed through an e-mail system for on-screen viewing. This set of options uses
compression, downsampling, and a relatively low resolution; converts all colors to RGB; maintains
compatibility with Acrobat 3.0; to create a PDF file that is as small as possible. It also optimizes files for
byte serving (fast web view).
• Printer job option – to be used for PDF files that are intended for desktop printers, digital copiers,
publishing on a CD-ROM, or to send to a client as a publishing proof. In this set of options, file size is still
important, but it is not the only objective. This set of options uses compression and downsampling to
keep the file size down, but it also embeds subsets of all fonts used in the file, tags everything for color
management, and prints to a medium resolution to create a reasonably accurate rendition of the original
• Prepress job option - intended for PDF files that will be printed as a high-quality final output to an
imagesetter or, for example, a platesetter. In this case, file size is not a consideration. The objective is to
maintain all the information in a PDF file that a commercial printer or service bureau will need to print the
document correctly. This set of options downsamples color and grayscale images at 300 dpi, monochrome
images at 1200 dpi, embeds subsets of all fonts used in the file, prints to a higher resolution, and uses
other settings to preserve the maximum amount of information about the original document.
Select the PDF document compatibility level (a.k.a. PDF version).
Auto-Rotate Pages automatically rotates pages based on the orientation of the text. For example,
some pages (such as those containing tables) in a document may require the document to be turned
sideways so it can be read. Choose "None" to disable the Auto-Rotate Pages option. Choose "All" to
rotate all pages in a document based on the orientation of the majority of text. Choose "PageByPage"
to rotate each page based on the direction of text on that page.
Here you can define the output document resolution. Usually, a higher resolution setting will result in
a larger but higher quality PDF document, while a lower setting will result in a smaller but lower
quality PDF document. You can enter a value from 72 to 2400.
NOTE: Low resolution is ideal for screen viewing. However, if high-quality paper print or the accurate control of
character position is required, you should choose a resolution of at least 600dpi.
