When creating a PDF document with the Create PDF Files dialog, click Settings and then click the Make PDF files menu. Click Custom, and then click the Options button to control quality and compression. The Custom Settings dialog appears:
- Images tab: Specify custom settings for image optimization, depending on the types of images in your document:
1. Downsample: Specify the number of dots per inch to be used in rendering each image. Setting this to a lower number reduces file size, but also reduces the quality of your printed images.
2. Compression: Specify the compression method. If you select Automatic, Nitro Pro uses the best compression type to suit the majority of images in the document. You can experiment with different settings to find the optimal balance between file size and image quality. JPEGand JPEG2000 are lossy compression methods, meaning that the decompression of a compressed image results in some loss of quality. The ZIP compression algorithm, on the other hand, is lossless.
3. Image Quality: If you select JPEG compression, you can specify the image quality, depending on how your document will be used. Higher image quality results in larger file sizes.
- Fonts tab: Specify custom settings for font embedding:
- Pages tab: Specify custom page sizes and orientation:
