Lesson 6. Customizing Adobe PDF Output Q... > Controlling Adobe PDF output quality

Controlling Adobe PDF output quality

Acrobat produces Adobe PDF files that accurately preserve the look and content of the original document. When creating Adobe PDF files, Acrobat uses various methods to compress text and line art, and compress and downsample color, grayscale, and monochrome images. (Line art is described with a mathematical equation and is usually created with a drawing program such as Adobe Illustrator®. Images are described in pixels and are created with paint programs or from scanners. Monochrome images include most black-and-white illustrations made by paint programs and any images scanned with an image depth of 1 bit. Adobe Photoshop, for example, works with images.)

In this lesson, you'll learn how to choose Adobe PDF conversion settings to create an Adobe PDF file that best balances quality and size for your needs. First you'll look at the default settings that are available for converting your application files to Adobe PDF and where you can change these settings.
