How do I make the images look clear in PDF when converted from MS Word?

Hi
When I convert an MS Word-2010 file (which  contains  images also) to PDF through Acrobat X Pro, some images which are of bigger size do  not look very clear. Is there any workaround for this problem? Please  reply. It's quite urgent.
Thanks

In my experience (not necessarily the best), I find it best to rescale image copies with a graphics package before importing into WORD or whatever. Resize and then set the resolution to about 600 dpi before you import. The issue of using the clipboard appears to be an issue with WORD 2007 and such. I clipped a 300 dpi image into my technical word processor and then back to a graphic editor and all was preserved. I did the same with WORD 2007 and everything got messed up and the resultant image looked terrible. In fact, in WORD I got the same result if I imported the picture or clipped it from my graphics package. So it appears there are some strange issues with WORD itself.
I am not trying to make any claims here, but just making an observation. The original image was at 300dpi. WORD also changed the 8-bit B&W photo to a 24-bit photo and reduced the number of pixels from 774 per width to 252 per width about a factor of 3 reduction in pixel resolution when clipped. When I expanded the image size in WORD, then the clip size increased also. When I do the same expansion of the image size in my word processor and then clip back to IrfanView, the original image is retained. My only conclusion is that OFFICE 2007 plays around with graphics and it does not seem to make any difference if you clip the image into WORD or import it, WORD still messes around with it. My guess this is just a general MS thing.
Some folks a year or 2 ago got me to looking at nice sunsets in PPT. There were all sorts of issues with creating the PDF (AA8) from the PPT to get a reasonable result. The image obtained from the MS converter seemed to keep the picture nice. The images obtained from PDF Maker and printing to the Adobe PDF printer gave slightly different results and tended to break the image into smaller parts that often left little lines in the picture if you zoomed in. Folks were blaming this on Acrobat and yet using the same version of Acrobat with OFFICE 2003 the sunset came out great.
This post is a bit jumbled, but the jist is that a lot of the graphics issues with WORD files seem to go back to WORD itself  and possibly with hooks MS put into OFFICE (OK, no proof on that and probably impossible to prove) to mess up Acrobat conversions. It would be interesting to see if the same result for the PDF is obtained from other converters, or if it is just something that OFFICE 2007 does "nicely" for Acrobat.
Sorry for going off the deep end, but I just have a major annoyance with OFFICE starting with 2007, particularly for things like this. They couldn't get equations right either, just one more thing that they messed up. As far as I am concerned, a lot of the issues stem from MS and not Acrobat.
Just for the heck of it, I ran the PPT picture through Open Office and used both the PDF export and the print to the Adobe PDF printer. Both retained the full image. However, when clipping from OOP to Irfanview, the resolution was 96dpi. The result seemed to be dependent on the zoom. So there are definitely some issues with copy and paste, at least with how some packages handle it.

    How can I save the images and movies on a  external Disk from iphoto program, to protect the images when problems occur in the laptop,

    Most Simple Back Up:
    Drag the iPhoto Library from your Pictures Folder to another Disk. This will make a copy on that disk.
    Slightly more complex: Use an app that will do incremental back ups. This is a very good way to work. The first time you run the back up the app will make a complete copy of the Library. Thereafter it will update the back up with the changes you have made. That makes subsequent back ups much faster. Many of these apps also have scheduling capabilities: So set it up and it will do the back up automatically.
    Example of such apps: Chronosync - but there are many others. Search on MacUpdate or the App Store
    If you want to back up the Photos only:
    Export them using the File -> Export command.

  • How can I make my images look good when exporting to PDF document?

    Hello! I'm struggling here with a PDF Brochure that I need to create (intended for web only, not print).
    There are two images that look horrible and pixelated when I create my PDF file. I have tried everything, making the images bigger and smaller, using 72 dpi images and 300 dpi ones. Everything results the same way... It looks perfect in my InDesign file, but in the PDF it looks all damaged. Here are two screen shots, one of how it looks in the PDF and one of how it looks in InDesign.
    Could you please tell me what I need to do to guarantee that the image looks good quality in the PDF? (My document is 40cmx20cm, I don't not if using cm is affecting the document).
    To export to PDF I'm using the option: Adobe PDF pressets --> Smallest file size.
    If you can help me I would really appreciate it!
    Thank you,
    Nataly.

    Terrible idea. In a JPG the text will not be alive, you loose all interactivity.
    And making JPGs with InDesign is not what the program is meant to make.

    When a document is signed, the signer has the option of locking the document. The links won't be active if the document is locked, so to avoid this, instruct the signer not to lock when signing.

  • How do I make the image to a link?

    I am trying to make the image a link. I have the facebook logo position on the left sidebar, but I need to make it a link. Here is my code:

    Something went wrong here, because the whole right side became the link, but the facebook logo is not working.
    Here is the image.

    It's also missing any meaningful HTML to apply that link to!
    The code is so horrible I'm not sure there is a simple fix.  It appears that you are wanting that link to apply to the facebook image which is used as a background image -
    <p><a target="_blank" href="http://www.facebook.com/pages/WE-SHOW-UP/198687606583?ref=ts%3Cimg%20s rc="></p>
        <span style="position: absolute; background: url(images/facebook_logo.png); background-repeat: no-repeat; width: 250px; height: 150px; top: 420px; left: 160px; color:#600;"></span>
    But you cannot apply a link to a background image.  Ideally, you would have something like this -
    <p><a target="_blank" href="http://www.facebook.com/pages/WE-SHOW-UP/198687606583?ref=ts%3Cimg%20s rc="><img src="images/facebook_logo.png"/></a></p>
    Where the image is contained within the anchor tags.  But that's not possible given the code we have been shown - the whole layout approach would need to be changed.
    Where did this code (*ew*) come from?

  • How do I center the image created in my pdf files?

    When I create a pdf file from a windows application and the image has a border around it. Then open the file to view it, the border appears to be shoved to the lower left corner of the opened pdf file image so instead of having a 1/4" border around the page, the border is 0 on the left side and bottom, and 1/2" on the right side and top. It prints this way also. How can I make Acrobat 8 Standard center my image so the border is the same all the way around? The border is all the way around in the application the document is created in, and when printed from the application it is correct all the way around, but the pdf file is not.

    Terry
    In your windows application, if you can click "center horizontally" and "center vertically" do that. I'm not sure what windows application you're using, but this happens to me when I use Microsoft Office programs.

  • How do I make the UK Safari my default browser when I log on ?

    Excuse me if this sounds stupid, but Im on broadband and and when I log onto Safari I get the USA version, so if I want to go to the Store page I get prices in dollars, which means I then have to go to a bookmark for the Apple Store UK to get what I want. So heres my problem:
    1. Am I correct that there is a UK Safari browser and if so
    a) Is it identical to the USA Safri browser with news etc
    b) How would I make the UK version my default bowser ?
    As usual hope this makes sense !
    Albert

    Albert,
    Although some default bookmarks may be specific to the U.S., Safari is generally not country specific. User modification is simply a matter of entering your preferences or deleting unwanted bookmarks.
    If you want the UK store as your "Home page", open Safari>Preferences...>General>and paste http://www.apple.com/uk/ into the "Home page:" field.

  • How can i make the report previewer show a PDF file instead of HTML?

    Hi there,
    i made a report which can be called within a form by a button. This report is a PDF-report.
    I also have an option in the application to start the report from the menu. Then i get the Launch Report Form by Headstart. Here i can fill in for Desformat (in the options) PDF and Output to PREVIEW. Still it generates me a HTML report in my browser. How can i make it work so that the PREVIEWER will show me a PDF-report instead of the HTML?
    Kind regards,

    You can not use PREVIEW as output type in webbased forms/reports. Try using as output type CACHE or FILE.

  • How can I make the current date/time be sent when emailing as XML?

    I'm creating a form for a customer to use for submitting print jobs. This customer will be emailing the XML form data, which will in turn be converted into a production order. I'd like to make the PDF form capture my customer's system time, so that I know when they filled out the form. I COULD just leave that up up the customer and use required current date and time fields, but that provides the ability for the customer to falsify that information.
    Is there any good way to capture the current date/time in the XML data, so that the customer doesn't need to nor has the ability to?
    Any suggestions would be great!

    You can use the following methods getHours(),getMinutes(), and getSeconds() from the date object to obtain the values for hour,minute,and second.

  • How can I make the E7 to produce dial-tones when c...

    Of course, I can hear the DTMF dial tones when I dial the number from the touch screen.
    But, I need the E7 to send dial tones when I call a contact (hence I don't dial from the touch screen). I need that because I'm using a calling card which needs the dial tones to be sent.
    It works like this:
    In the contact details I enter a long number, with pauses, like:
    18001231234p09876543p011392109876
    where the 1st numer calls the calling-card number, the 2nd is the pin, the 3rd is the international number I'm calling.
    Of corse, when I call that long number (which is a contact) the carrier needs to "hear" the dial tones.
    Hence, the question in the subject line.
    P.S. If there is a better way to use calling cards, pls let me know.

    I think I was wrong. After trial and re-trials I see the E7 actually sends out the dial tones.
    Well, I don't know why it did not work at first. Now it's ok.

  • How can I reduce the file size of a pdf when exporting?

    I don't want to just choose between high quality print or smallest file size.
    I want to export it from 60MB to 40MB.
    Can I do this manually? When I use smallest file size the quality is too low and the content looks bad.
    But high quality print exports my PDF at 60MB which is too big.

    You cannot simply legislate the size of a PDF file. If you content is primarily text and vector, there is not much at all you can do to reduce PDF file size other than to cut out content. Otherwise, the only other variables are those of downsampling and compressing the raster images from your content.
    You must be very careful in choosing the PDF export settings. The “smallest size” settings yield PDF files that realistically really are not fit for printing and may mess up any CMYK colors. The “high quality print” and “PDF/X-4” settings yield best print output, but yield the largest PDF files since they do less image resolution downsampling and only the maximum quality lossy JPEG compression.
    I would recommend that you start with either the “high quality print” or the “PDF/X-4” settings and make a custom set of export settings. Assuming that you aren't going for offset or gravure printing, change the color image and grayscale image downsampling values from 300 and 450 to either 200 and 275 or no less than 150 and 225. If that doesn't give enough file size reduction, change the compression image quality from “Maximum” to either “High” or no less than “Medium.” Beyond these changes, you may end up with PDF files that will neither print nor display with any reasonable quality.

  • How to remove the automatically recognized hyperlinks in PDF after converting from Word?

    Hi everyone!
    When converting Word to PDF, texts with "http", "www", or email addresses with "@" are automatically hyperlinked.
    The way Adobe Acrobat recognizes URLs is not by the text's underlying hyperlinks rather it is by the actual characters in the text.  If the text contains "http" or "www" it recognizes it as a URL address, if it contains "@", it recognizes it as an email address.
    I am aware that you could choose to disable the hyperlinks by going to Edit - Preferences - General - untick Create links from URLs. However, other users who have this ticked will still be able to click on the hyperlinks.
    In Word, you can specify whether to add a hyperlink or not, or to direct the hyperlink to a different path.  But in Adobe Acrobat, it automatically recognizes the hyperlink by its text.  I know it is possible to manually add a hyperlink to a PDF, but is it possible to remove the automatically recognized hyperlinks?
    Is there also some sort of ADM administrative template for this purpose?
    Thanks.
    .m.u.r.d.o.c.h.

    I was thinking it could be possible with a document-level script that
    removes all links, but then I saw that the link Acrobat adds are not real
    link objects, so a script can't remove them. Therefore I think the answer is
    no, you can't do it. The only way might be to use shorter addresses in order
    to confuse Acrobat into thinking they're just plain text. For example, use "
    google.com" instead of "http://www.google.com/". In my tests it remained as
    plain text.

  • Black frames at the end of an exported file when converting from 60p to 24p

    I have another export issue that I can't figure out.
    I import footage I shot at 23.98fps (on a JVC HD100) using a Kona LH card at 59.94fps DVCPro HD, in which it has a 2:3 cadence. I need to make files that are actually 23.98p DVCProHD. Unfortunately, when I export in Final Cut from the 59.94 original, the new 23.98 file has all of the image, exported correctly, followed by a number of black frames such that the total number of frames in the exported file equals the number of frames in the original file. That is:
    If the original 59.94 file was 3s long, that is 60 * 3 = 180 frames. The exported 23.98 file also has 180 frames, but only 3s of image = 3 * 24 = 72 frames, followed by 180 - 72 = 108 frames = 4s 12frames of black.
    How can I prevent this from happening, and end up with an exported file that is (e.g.) just the 3s of image, and not 7.5s of which 4.5s are black?
    It's true that I can manually clip this black off, but I need to do many clips as a batch, and would really not have to change one clip at a time. It is also true that I can do a batch in compressor, and that this process does not suffer this problem -- that is, there is no extra black -- however, there is another problem: the original 59.94 DVCProHD files are actually 1280x720 with square pixels; the files exported from FCP via the KONA DVCProHD codec maintain this true HD proportion, but the ones exprted through compressor (which does not appear to support the KONA LH implementation of DVCProHD as an option) have the size 960x720 with anamorphic pixels, and I would rather keep the original size. Thus, I would rather export from fcp. If anyone has any insight into how I might resolve this....
    Thanks,
    Robert Schaller

    Thanks. If I understand you correctly, it does seem to export correctly if I paste the 59.94 clip into a 23.98 sequence (you can't nest sequences that have different time bases) and export from there, and it doesn't even have to specify square pixels, etc.: the AJA codec implementation seems to take care of that. There is no longer any extra black, so, per file, that gives the right result.
    That, however, is only one part of the problem, though a significant part. Next is, I really would like to do this as a batch process, as I tend to have many clips to do at one time. As soon as I try any kind of batch export, I end up with one of two problems:
    1) if I try to batch export from fcp, I'm back to having extra black frames, or
    2) if I try to batch export with compressor, I get 960x720 files.
    If anyone has any suggestions on how to get the right files in a batch, that would be the next step. Is fcp scriptable? And, if so, can you write a script that takes a clip, pastes it into a blank 23.98 DVCPro timeline, sets the correct in and out points (i.e, in at the beginning and out 1 before the end), exports it with a specified codec and time base, with a name based on the source clip, and then repeats that as needed?
    Thanks for any input --

  • Images not appearing on slide when converted from Powerpoint to Keynote

    Hi Lilybiri,
    I have (again) requested my IT dept to take a look at what is going on.
    If they cannt/wont help, then I may well take up Rick's very kind offer.
    The more I think about it, the more I believe my problem(s) stem from having to link up to Adobe when working on-line.
    It takes about 30 seconds from the time I open the initial Captivate start screen (attached) before any of the links become active.
    That strikes me as way too long and might be the cause of the problem.
    Any idea if this "link to Adobe" can to turned off? What do I need the link for anyway...day to day?
