Making PDFs with Distiller vs. using Illustrator
Posted on 2004-08-13
What I am wondering is what the differences may be in PDFs which are created with Acrobat Distiller and just saving as with Illustrator CS. for example, is there a difference in file compression or anything else that makes one more favorable than another? We used to print to file from Illustrator, then drop them in the distiller and had great results.
Since then I've made a few with Illy CS and they seem to be cool. but before abandoning Acrobat Distiller altogether, I wanted to make sure there wasn't some reason to keep it around. thanks!
