Create PDF without image compression?

How do i create a pdf from multiple images without any compression?
Seems like even if i do optimize pdf and select png(edit the settings to do max res and no downscaling), when it saves the pdf, at 100% zoom, it's obviously bigger than my original png and compressed(or maybe it looks blurry because it's being upscaled when i never requested).
In short, if my png is 500x500, i want it to be exactly that size at 100% maginification once the pdf is saved out. I don't want any compression, i don't want any scaling...why is it so hard to do this???
Any help is much appreciated!

However... the conversion can be lossless.  If you make a PDF file from a SINGLE image (different option) and select the image format in Files of Type you can click Settings and choose the format for compression. Choose ZIP and compression equivalent to PNG is used.
You also have fine control when printing to PDF.
It's just the Combine Files function, which is fast and simple, that lacks choices.

  • Is it possible to create and save a .PDF without any compression to the resulting .PDF?

    I need an uncompressed file so I can use the resulting PDF to do a find/replace. Can't do it with compression.

    Thanks for the reply. Of all the suggestions I've received this seemed to
    be most promising. I gave it a try and the problem is that when I attempt
    to save as optimized a message box pops up and says I have to save my
    document first. Low and behold when I save it, compression occurs. Even
    when I select the options you suggest I'm left with a compressed document.

    You don't want the UncompressPDF plugin - that's designed to split out the
    COS objects but doesn't remove the Flate encoding (plus if you've never
    compiled a plugin before, it's not really the time to learn).
    Instead, simply save your PDF file using the PDF (Optimized) file type,
    click the Settings button and under "Clean Up" - "Object compression
    options", choose "Remove compression". Turn everything else off if you
    want to retain the PDF content exactly as it was before.
    Your document-level scripts will then be in the file as plain text.

  • Creating PDF with IMAGE using CFDOCUMENT TAG

    Hi Guys,
    I m facing problem while creating the PDF using CFDOCUMENT
    Actually my clients want the IMAGEs in PDF document.
    Problem is most of the images in JPG format and while I am
    going to attach images in PDF document it takes lots of time for
    creating PDF. In most of time it cause timeout.
    I have try to convert images JPG to PNG, yes I some what
    better performance than JPG format but still it is work for 20 - 25
    images. In my case I want to attach normally 50-100 images in PDF
    (sometimes it is more 200).
    PLZ, Help me.. F1...F1...F1
    thanks in advance

    I am having a similar and more serious problem. It takes a
    long time to execute, but even attaching a small image balloons the
    pdf to 6MB plus. After a few images it gets up to 20MB. These are

    email or process effectively. Does anyone know how to reduce

  • Embed jpg in a pdf without re-compressing it during export or save?

    I need to create a pdf-portfolio. Therefore I want the images included to look their best. I thought it a small matter to individually compress the images in photoshop for optimal appearance and size, and then to include them in a document for pdf-export. The idea is that you open up this pdf and see the images exactly as I saw them in the photoshop jpg previerw. So far I tried Illustrator and InDesign. Unfortunately both of these seem unable to just include the original jpg during pdf-export. They are completely set on recompressing the images. Either that or they will try to do away with the compression completely. You can choose the compression alternative "none", but then you will end up with a huge pdf-file, a couple of hundred megabytes in my case. If you chose any other compression alternative, the jpg will be degraded further during the second pass of compression that will take place during export. The images will look miserable.
    So my question: Is there any way to get around this weird limitation in Illustrator or Indesign? And if not, what software should I be using to design a portfolio and include individually compressed jpg's and jpg2000?

    No, png will typically be much bigger in filesize, not an option if data size is a factor.
    BUT, I found a solution: I downloaded & installed Acrobat XI Pro. In Acrobat I open the pdf that was saved from Illustrator. Then it's just a matter of replacing all images manually with your custom saved jpg's. Comparing pdf's: Saved from Illustrator: 8.3 Mb and ****** looking general impression, lots of banding and artefacts. Modified in Acrobat and resaved with custom saved jpg's: 5.5 Mb and much nicer looking images, with few apparent compression artefacts, no banding.

  • Unusual Bug when creating pdf from image files

    Hi I have a very mindboggling problem which I cant seem to get my head around.
    basically I am trying to create a pdf using a large amount of image files, these images are scans of pages of a book. so I have been trying to create a pdf file from these images, and everytime i try, it all looks ok except for one page which comes up smaller in size than the rest which is a big problem and very unusual. If I change the view of acrobat so that it shows two pages at a time then this is clearly visable where one page is normal and the page next to it is like a third of the size. Ive checked the image file properties for that page and they are more or less the same as the rest, the dimensions of the image file too, but when I add it into a PDF it seems to shrink in size, any ideas as to why? any help would be much appreciated! (and I hope what I said made sense lol )

    Hi Davew000

  • Creating PDF interactive image fields for Adobe Reader users

    I Need to create image fields to PDF flyers that Adobe Reader users can click on to import JPG/EPS image files and print out. I've seen this done on a PC using Adobe LiveCycle Designer 7. My system is Mac OS 10.3.9 using the Adobe Creative Suite 2 Premium. Since LiveCycle is a PC program only, I find I'm limited to creating live text fields only. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    *Thank you*.  That worked.  How odd that the help file was out-of-date with my version of Acrobat.  Thanks you again!

  • How to create PDF without embedded fonts from Indesign

    Can anyone tell me how to create from Indesign a PDF that certainly does not contain any fonts I don't want to include? But that would appear in the same layout in a substituted font, including italics and small caps?

    You can't, InDesign will embed the fonts for  you.
    To unembed fonts you need Acrobat Professional. Go to Tools>Print Production>Pdf Optimiser
    go to Fonts
    And select the fonts to unembed.
    You could select any text and change the Transparency to 99.9%.
    Then in Edit>Transparency Flattener make a new one using High as a base for the new
    Select Convert Text to Outlines.
    When you Export to pdf, choose Adobe PDF 1.3, and go to Flattening, choose the new Flattener Preset that you just made.
    And when you export it, any text forced through the Flattener will be converted to outlines. (this could violate the terms of the Font Licencing.)

  • PDF display images with grey cast?

    I am having trouble diagnosing a problem. When I open recently created PDFs the images will display with a grey cast over them. It's almost as if the gamma isn't set right. But here's the kicker. They display correctly for just a split second, then the cast shows up. Same thing happens if I zoom in or out, but only the first time it has to redraw the screen. I can't find anything like it anywhere. Anyone have any ideas?

    I tried going through the acrobat preferences and checking and unchecking just about everything. I rebuilt the preferences. Still nothing. Then I happened to open a PDF that displayed correctly, so that lead me back to thinking it was something in my output. I double checked all the PDF output presets and did find one thing: I added a new preset for high-res PDFs where I changed the image compression from 300 ppi to 600 ppi. I tried it back at 300 and it displays correctly. So, after all this, it seems that super high-res images will display with the grey cast. Thanks for your help, Jon.

  • What do I need to create PDF files on my iPad?

    So, in trying to resolve the frustration I am having in using Adobe Reader for iOS to create PDFs (without having to pay Adobe another 25% of my current Creative Cloud subscription....) I logged a sales eqnuiry via Adobe website.
    I get a call back withint a couple of hours. Not bad.
    He immediately asks how many computers I have enabled for my Creative Cloud account. Only one, I say.
    Well, he says, then you can install Creative Cloud on your iPad.
    No I can't, I said - Creative Cloud for iPad is a very skinny client, only handles Photoshop, and view some file formats. Not a full Acrobat function.
    Oh, he says, let em check. Eventually comes back. Yes, you are right he says. You have to pay us another $15 per month on top of the $50 per month Creative Crowd (even though CC already includes Acrobat Pro) you already pay, just so you can create PDFs on your iPad.
    That's ridiculous, I say - Adobe does not know how customers want to use your products. More people are going to use a desktop plus tablet - or laptop only. But if I have a desktop and a laptop I can have Creative Cloud on both. I accept that they are different OS, but don't make excuses like " is a different product to Acrobat Pro" - I already pay for the latter in my CC subscription, so why should I be price gouged another 25%? Makes Adobe look plain greedy - and still they don't want to pay tax in Australia....
    If it was no more than $5 per month on top of the CC subscription, maybe I would go for it - but anything more is DAYLIGHT ROBBERY in my opinion. 

    Hi GrattanGuru,
    You have creative cloud subscription as you have mentioned. Under Adobe Reader to convert PDF to other formats Adobe offers online service called services:
    That would be the reason support person might have told you on call, that you have to pay for that service.
    Under creative cloud you are getting Adobe applications. However under you are getting online services which are providing Acrobat functions online.

  • Adobe PDF Maker has detected that document is protected. Could not create PDF using Pro

    Hi All,
    I am new to this forum and have just started recently using Adobe Pro to  convert huge number of Microsoft Office documents into PDF.
    I get this error when I am batch Processing.
    Adobe PDF Maker has detected that the Document is Protected. It will be unable to create Tags,links and notes with protection on. Do you wish to continue and create PDF without Tags.
    I click Yes , but still I do not see the PDFs created.
    By the way where do i look for the failed documents . Is there any log file. Just to scroll down at the end of batch processing is time consuming.
    Thanks for all your input.

    There is typically a log file produced and located in the folder with the file I think (I don't run into the errors much and so do not look for the files). It is also possible you have turned off retaining the file.

  • How to save an edited PDF in Acrobat Pro without any compression

    I just edited an existing PDF in Acrobat Pro 9 - actually I inserted some high resolution images in TIFF via the Touchup tool.
    What do I have to do to save it without any compression of the TIFFs - I tried a lot, but the outcome is always compressed, showing artifacts.

    First, editing PDFs is really only for minor fixups. There is generally no word wrap or such when doing such editing and often then seem to go downhill fast. To edit text, you have to have the font available. If the file was scanned and the OCR applied was searchable text, the only option to edit what is displayed is with a graphics editor, typically PhotoShop. PhotoShop allows Acrobat to have edited graphics and then be reinserted in the file (I don't do it, so can't give details). ClearScan replaces what is seen on screen in the graphic with the text. In that case, you see all of the text and the corresponding errors (often many). You may want to load a graphic (bitmap) with text showing or use a scan and try the various versions of OCR to see what I am talking about. That may help you see the options. Searchable PDFs is more useful if an original is critical, such as in the legal profession.
