i've been having a lot of trouble convering word documents and publisher documents into usable PDF files. Basically, some or most of the images always come out like crap, and like horribly degraded compared to the original word or publisher document. i've had this trouble on multiple computers.
also, this is happening whether I use adobe acrobat professional 7.0 or cutePDF writer.
I have tried the following:
in the conversion options changing the DPI to: 300, 600, 1200, 2000, 4000, with no positive effects.
tried turning off automatic image compression algorithms in the adobe write options for both color and monochrome images.
i just don't get it, some documents work ok, most of the time images are a disaster. images are always at least 72 DPI, sometimes 300 or more, but either way (72 or 300) they are still worthless after being converted.
I'm a computer engineer and very proficient in software, but i'm embarrassed as for all the things i can do with software, i've been struggling with this for over a year
