Resolution of jpgs in Acrobat Pro 9

I am very new to Adobe Acrobat Pro 9
I have scans of very old genealogy documents, some of which have been scanned at low resolutions.
I want to use Acrobat to consolidate these scans into a lesser nunber of PDFs.
However, there is a noticable loss of sharpness, particularly with the poorer scans.  I can't find where to set "hi res" or similar.
Can someone help?

Hi Peter,
The files are jpgs of documents held by an Australian Government Archive.  They are quickly handwritten war records, which have deteriorated over time.
They have been scanned at 96 dpi.or less
I'm beginning to think that Adobe doesn't offer variables qualities for jpgs.  Am I wrong?
Here is an example jpg image

  • Adobe Acrobat Pro XI trial install failure

    I have tried several times to install the trial of Acrobat Pro XI. Each time, after the Download Assistant downloads the Installer, I run the installer, and receive two error messages.
    First: "The installation cannot proceed, because some of the processes are running."
    After clicking "OK", the window beneath reveals this error message:
    So, as advised, I am contacting the software manufacturer for assistance. Odd that Adobe is not even aware that the "software manufacturer" is Adobe, don't you think?
    Also, I can't read the entire first line of the last error message. "There were errors in the installation. You may want to try i…" is all that's there.
    My details:
    Mac OS X 10.9.5
    MacBookPro 13" 2014
    I just wanted to see if the latest version of Acrobat improves on the resolution problems associated with reading PDFs with the high-resolution Retina display. Acrobat Pro X displays all text quite choppy, even if I set the preferences to use System Settings.
    Any ideas how I can complete the installation?

    No. This is interesting, but not helpful.
    The link seems to discuss problems with the Download Assistant itself. Strange, too, that all the links to "helpful" information are concerned with the Creative Suite. This is confusing.
    My problem is with the installation of Acrobat Pro XI. All the steps complete, except for the final moments of the installation. There is no information regarding the error message I am seeing.
    Adobe's "Help" website is legendary for its poor navigability. I just end up going in circles.

  • Converting PDF to JPG using Acrobat XI Standard

    I know I can convert a PDF into a JPG using Acrobat Pro but I'm wondering if I can do the same using Acrobat XI Standard.  The only thing I've read online is that Standard can convert PDFs into Excel, Word or Power Point docs.

    Yes, you can do this with Acrobat XI Standard. The only export feature that is not available in Std. is the ability to convert to PowerPoint.

  • Acrobat Pro 9.2.0 error on creating .jpg from .pdf

    Hi there,
    I am encountering this same issue that was cited in the "Saving a PDF file as a JPEG" from 2008.  I have a one-page poster in Word 2010 which I was able to convert into a text renderable pdf, then - in Acrobat Pro - was able to convert this pdf into a jpg with no problems - hundreds of times in the past. The Word file is a composite of several images and text that I wish to save as a .jpg to insert into an event  programme as the front cover.
    Now, on printing to pdf, I am not getting consistent renderable text when I open the file in Acrobat Pro, AND if I attempt to "save as" a jpg I get the following error:
    "Acrobat could not save a page in this document because of the following error:
    The image is too wide to output. Please crop it or reduce resolution and try again. (Page 1)"
    I can only click ignore or cancel. Neither will allow me to create a jpg.
    Has anyone else found this error recently?
    I did download some updates recently to Adobe and Flash, so they could be the problem... but I have no idea what to do to undo them.
    I have tried using a different pdf writer to create the pdf file, but if I go back to Acrobat Pro, I still get the jpg error. I assume the error is to do with teh image rendering end, not the pdf writing itself.
    I note from the discussion string earlier, there has been no fix posted for this. This in itself is rather disappointing for an issue that first arose in 2008.
    I hope someone can help as this is driving me crazy!

    I'm still unable to update Acrobat Professional without doing a complete re-install of the product.
    Has this issue been resolved by Adobe?
    Everytime there is an update to Adobe Acrobat Professional, I have to do a complete re-install before I can apply an update.

  • How do I uncheck the "open in low resolution" box for Acrobat Pro 10.1.10 in a MBP with retina display?

    I have the "open in low resolution" box checked by default and I can not uncheck it because it is shaded out. I already tried the "uninstall Acrobat, delete the 'com.adobe.PDFAdminSettings.plist' file, and reinstall"  solution, but it did not work. I am using Adobe CS6, acrobat pro 10.1.10, macbook pro w/ retina display, and OS X 10.9.4.

    I don't think Acrobat 10 is capable of that. Only the very latest Acrobat 11 update has some concessions for Retina displays.

  • How can I insert an image at the original resolution into a PDF using Acrobat Pro XI

    Got an image created in Photoshop at 300DPI 2480 pixels wide by xx high.  Saved as a TIFF.
    When I insert that image in my PDF (A4 210mm x 297mm) using Acrobat Pro XI via "Content Editing->Add Image" it appears smaller than the page width of the PDF, and I must manually resize the inserted image by dragging with my mouse.  
    Documentation says the image is inserted at the original image resolution, but it doesn't seem to be the case.
    Also tried creating another image in Photoshop using 210mm width @ 300 DPI (instead of 2480 pixels @ 300DPI), got the same results.
    Can anyone help?  Cheers.

    You should maybe take a step back. Nobody composes pages in Acrobat.

  • How to get Acrobat Pro 7 to convert JPG's

    Im currently using Acrobat Pro 7 ver 7.0.0 on a Windows XP Pro SP3 machine. Lately Acrobat has been struggling to convert jpeg files into PDF resulting in blank pages with nothing on them. Usually, i would edit the jpeg in Elements 9 and then save. I right-click the file to bring up the convert option which then produces a blank PDF document.
    The jpeg files are not that big, typically 1 to 3 MB's. I can run a conversion via the Adobe printer however i lose alot of quality.
    Any suggestions?

    You can change the job options settings so that you loose no quality at all. You shouldn't be using 7.0.0, but should upgrade to 7.1.4 using the files that can be found here: What happens if you use File->Open in Acrobat to convert your jpgs to pdf?

  • How to overcome 45inch size restriction on 4 x 300page PDFs ? - are  ex docs - jpgs photographed with iPhone - on Mac and acrobat pro 9

    I have 4 x 300+ page PDFs (made from iPhone photo jpgs of old typed documents) that I made into PDFs and then tried OCR but it failed saying the pages exceed the 45 x 45 inch limit.
    Is there anyway I can reduce the 45 inch problem - for each batch/multiple page file  - and not have to resize each jpg image individually ?
    please say yes !
    I have  acrobat pro 9 ...and Photoshop cs6.
    all suggestions welcome

    Overcome the 45 inch limitation? You don't.
    What to do? Ensure the process you use to create PDF outputs a page size that does not bump/exceed 45 inches.
    Be well...

  • Acrobat Pro / How to insert a jpg or a png in interactive pdf? (I can only insert pdfs)

    Hi, I have created a placeholder for picture in an interactive pdf.
    When I want to insert a picture the only format allowed is pdf.
    I would like to be able to insert jpg or png.
    I had a look online and it seems that I should be able to change the user preferences of Adobe to allow formats like jpg and png to be inserted.
    I can't find the way to do that.
    Any idea?
    Thanks a lot

    Thanks Sara, your suggestion is a very good alternative. By using the tools I can add pictures of any types.
    Following this exemple can I do the same in Acrobate Reader?
    However I was trying to do something different. I have create an action in Acrobat Pro using Javascript
    When I want to insert a picture I have format options but only the pdfs are showing (see screenshot attached). As Bernd told use Acrobate Reader allows only PDFs to be inserted but Acrobate Pro should allow us more options I think... Anymore thoughts?
    Thanks a lot

  • Why are watermark and background images blurry in Acrobat Pro?

    I've created a header image in Illustrator that incorporates a client's logo and text in a box to use in Acrobat Pro XI (Because you can't insert an image in the Acrobat header/foot function--please let me know if I'm wrong about that). I exported the image from lllustrator as high quality print PDF and as a high quality JPG. The document I am working on is a combination of Word generated text pages and RTF data sets converted to PDFs.  When I try to insert the PDF header I've created it will not work in the data set pages as a watermark or background. It does work as a JPG, but the problem is that the box surrounding the JPG image and text loses its bottom line and the entire image looks blurry. The PDF isn't clear as I'd like it look either.  Any suggestions on how I can fix this would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you!

    Hello Bill,
    Thanks for the suggestion.  Unfortunately, Acrobat only accepts a limited number of file formats. I used PDF images as much as possible assuming that they'd have the highest resolution.
    The RTF pages wouldn't take a BMP. I've been searching for an plug-in or third party add-on to resolve the issue.

  • Why do images within a PDF look jagged when viewed in Acrobat Pro 10.1.6?

    Using a MacBook Pro running Mac OS version 10.7.5 with NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M 1024 MB graphics card. High-resolution source images look fine in other software, and embedded images in a PDF look fine when viewed on Google Drive, but curves and diagonal lines look jagged when viewed in Acrobat Pro 10.1.6. Checking smoothing options in Preferences only adjusts the position of the jagged edges; it neither enhances nor ameliorates them.
    I created a sample PDF to illustrate the problem I'm having. Created in illustrator, exported to PNG and converted to PDF. Here is a screenshot of the source PNG side-by-side with the PDF I created from it:
    Please note that when I preview the PDF in Finder, and when I view the PDF in Chrome using Google Drive, the image looks fine. Here's a link to the sample PDF:
    Any assistance is appreciated. Thanks!

    Unfortunately, as I mentioned in my original post, I've already tried toggling smoothing options. They don't make the jagged edges go away—they just change them slightly. In some cases, as with the sample file provided, it does help smooth the art out, but it never looks as good as it did going in, in a recent project, toggling smoothing options didn't affect the appearance of the image at all. Zoom does not appear to relieve the artifacting.
    A little clarification: this PDF was created from a flat PNG, but I have had this issue with PNGs and TIFFs as well, generated by both Photoshop and Illustrator. To reiterate, the PDFs display fine in other software—Finder preview looks great, and the same file viewed in my browser via Google Drive looks as intended as well. A colleague was able to replicate this issue in Acrobat on his Windows machine. This appears to be a rendering issue specific to Acrobat with regards to the files I use it to create.

  • Acrobat Pro XI - Crashes when Acrobat Preferences is Opened

    Brief History:
    I am in the UK and run Mac OS X 10.8.2. Other Adobe products are CS3 Master Suite and Acrobat Pro 8. All installed on the Start Up Drive.
    Downloaded and installed the Trial version of Acrobat Pro XI, intent on UpGrading on the basis of a functional copy of Acrobat Pro 8 running on the Mac and duly registered in my Adobe Account.
    Happy with the Trial version the UpGrade Licence was purchased and the Serial Number was used in an attempt to convert the software to a Licenced version. However a message, something similar to that shown, declared:
    The Serial Number entered is valid. Acrobat cannot find a qualifying product.
    Whilst seeking help on the Adobe web site a ‘Chat’ system message popped up and subsequently a very helpful CS Agent ‘talked’ me through the problem. With the aid of Challenge Codes Acrobat Pro XI was made to accept the input of the Serial Number.
    It seemed to be the end of the problem, gone was the nag screen and everything seemed to be working well, leaving me to get on and enjoy using XI?
    For a few days everything seemed OK, then I tried to view a PDF from a web site and a message appeared:
    Adobe PDF Document
    There is a problem with the Adobe Acrobat/Reader.
    If it is running, please exit and try again. (4.9)
    This subsequently appeared at every attempt to view any PDF from the web.
    Downloading PDFs from web Links to the Mac and then opening them works without any problems.
    Remedial Actions:
    I have trashed the Acrobat Pro XI Preferences File (.plist), used Disk Utility to Repair Permissions and rebuilt the Launch Services Database amongst other things. None of these actions have made any improvement to the situation reported.
    The prospect of uninstalling Acrobat Pro XI was considered but due to the problems converting to the Licenced version I decided that being able to partially use Acrobat was better than having nothing at all.
    I moved on to see if anything could be done in Acrobat Preferences.
    Acrobat Pro XI Crashes:
    Opening Acrobat Pro XI, either with or without a PDF displayed, Acrobat opens and a few seconds after the Acrobat > Preferences Link is hit Acrobat Pro XI crashes. This happens for as many times as you care to try.
    A substantial Report is generated and is sent to Apple but not Adobe.
    Acrobat does not crash until Preferences is accessed.
    I am asking for help here because having had two more ‘Chats’ on the Adobe Help web site, the first Agent deferred my request ‘until the arrival of the Acrobat Experts‘. After waiting 4 hours as requested, the second Agent ignored all the information tendered asking only a few questions before informing me that ‘This Case will have to be answered by Telephone’.
    The fact that I always clearly inform that using the Telephone is difficult for me due to hearing problems was apparently of no consequence to this individual.
    I Telephoned and waited for an hour before hearing a human voice, thankfully the line was quite good.
    Unfortunately I was committed to other tasks and needed to break off from the conversation before any real progess was made.
    The CS Agent arranged for me to receive a Call Back. The time for the Call Back came and passed along with a few more hours. Whilst I was making ‘another’ cup of coffee the phone rang for about 5 ‘rings’ and cut off. Naturally it was a withheld number, this may have been the expected call?
    The Case that had been opened for this problem was upgraded with a copy of the Crash Report. On the next visit to my Account Case History all of my Cases were found to be marked as ‘Withdrawn‘ or ‘Not Appropriate’. IMO Adobe taking such retrospect action is not appropriate.
    I will start the ‘on-line help’ journey again tomorrow but will not be holding my breath awaiting a successful outcome and feel that it may be better to ask some questions in this Forum:
    1. Am I entitled to 90 Days, or any other period, of Free Support from Adobe?
    2. What is the best way to proceed toward getting a resolution to these problems?
    3. Can anyone offer a direct solution to the Acrobat Pro XI Crashing problem?
    Any input will be gratefully appreciated, best wishes, G

  • Acrobat Pro 9 - Conversion Error from Word 2007

    I do not want to hijack the thread or question raised by another poster a short time ago but I cannot figure out how to correct the below.
    Office 2007 fully updated
    Vista 32-bit
    Acrobat Pro 9.3.4
    I have to provide data for someone else to assemble and publish and have been attempting to convert some Word documents nearly full of tables to press quality .pdf.  Whenever I try the conversion, Acrobat Pro seems to re-center the tables both horizontally and vertically forcing the misalignment of the rows of data although any repeating headers remain properly placed.  I can even see the table shift downward slightly when using the Acrobat conversion macro within Word.  It may be adjusting the margins instead of re-centering.
    I have tried using the macro within Word 2007, Create PDF within Acrobat Pro and Print to PDF as well as tweaking some of the settings such as lowering resolution and turned off unused settings such as enable fast web view, etc.  The glitch also occurs with High Quality Print.  Standard used to work but after the update to 9.3.4 that conversion shows the same problem.  I even tried saving in Word 97-2003 format with the same results.
    The documents in question do have custom page sizes and margins but do not use any abnormal fonts.  I have tried changing the margins but the conversion to .pdf still changes the information and/or magins as described above.  Row height seems to be correctly maintained.
    I realize that a knowledgeable user can export the .pdf back into Word or other program but am trying to make it more difficult for someone to edit information which has always had extremely negative consequences in terms of data organization, layout and even integrity.
    There has to be something really silly that I am overlooking.
    Thank You

    Thanks Bill.
    Sorry for the delay, Verizon dumped its DSL +service to Frontier so we had one of the bi-weekly extended outages.
    No changes occurred when I changed the default printer to Adobe PDF.  All of my printers are new enough so that they can handle the current margins so I do not think that they is a problem there but changing the default as suggested by you and Michael eliminates that as the source.
    I had previously been able to convert using the built-in converter in Word but was unsure whether or not the result would be press quality and was unable to find this information in my searches.  I retested this and conversion using Word’s built-in converter works without a problem.
    The conversion using Combine Miles > Merge Into A Single PDF also works without a problem with the highest quality setting.  It took several hours to run but I guess or assume that it was because of the number of tags as this is a quick setting and therefore I could not disable the tagging which is not needed in this case.
    I was also able to convert the same file which had been saved from Word 2007 into the 1997-2003 format as described above but the same problem came up when using the Acrobat macro and Create PDF from File.  I had even created a modified press quality settings to modify settings like disabling autorotate, Object Level Compression, changed the binding option, lowered resolution, bumping the format up to PDF 1.7, etc., but all produce the same result.  I have tried changing the document margins in case the conversion process rounded these but all produce the same artifact/problem except when I use Combine Files or the converter built into Word.

  • Adobe Acrobat Pro 9.2 blurry shadow problem

    Hi all,
    This problem is very strange and just happened to me last week.
    When I opened 1 PDF file, the problem didn't occured, but when I opened 2 or more PDF, this problem occured.
    This is the normal file
    Open this image to have visual picture :
    But after I scroll the PDF file (using the scroll in the right side) and then stop, slowly but sure, the PDF screen and font start to get blurry and blurry (you can see there is a diagonal line from upper left to the bottom right screen, the left screen is blurrer than the right screen)
    Open this image2 to have visual picture :
    And if I highlight some of the text and scroll the mouse down, the screen will become unbelieable blurry, just like this.
    Open this image3 to have visual picture :
    Thank you so much in advanced for helping... Already looking the answer for several days without any solution.
    What should I do ?
    NB : I have try to uninstall and install this software but it still happened.
    NB2 : I tried to install Acrobat Reader (free) and I got the same problem
    NB3 : I changed my Adobe CS4 to CS5 several weeks agao. I don't know if this is the problem.

    So.. If we want to control the "hardware graphics acceleration", should it be done inside the Adobe Acrobat Pro ?
    If yes, which part of option should we changed ?
    If not, can someone tell me which way to setting this one ?
    Do anybody have other input ? This problem makes me crazy
    Thank you so much in advanced.

  • Adobe Acrobat Pro 9.4.6 Sticky Note Icons are huge and can not resize

    My coworker is having a problem with the size of the Sticky Note (comments) Icon.  It is huge and we can not resize.
    When you open the icon, it takes up the whole page.  We can change the Font size, but the actual icon will not resize.
    The same document opened up from someone else, the icon views normal. We all have Adobe Acrobat Pro V9.4.6.  Any suggestions on a fix?
    Thank You.

    Your reply also helped fix a problem I had with not being able to resize sticky notes. My original display resolution meant that the resize symbols in the lower corners of the sticky note weren't accessible. In Acrobat X, the setting is under Acrobat, Preferences, Page Display, Resolution.
