Hello!

I need to get a HTML file converted to PDF. This is fine.
But the images in the HTML are loosing quality when the file is converted to PDF.
I've already tried to use images in 300dpi, in Flash, without optimization, but the results are always imagens in low quality.
Can you help me, please?

Thanks in advance,
Dri

There are a bunch of ways. One more question first: what version of Adobe Acrobat are you using?

Okay.

So what happens when you print to the PDF Printer is that you lose some quality due to the printer settings and the way the browser renders the image for print.  You can control the printer settings by going into Properties and screwing around there but that's only half the battle.  You cannot really control how the page renders for printing aside from going through the browser settings but that's largely a waste of time.

Some alternatives:

From Acrobat, do File | Create PDF... | From Web Page.  That will open the page directly in Acrobat and give you more flexibility in the rendering.

Use Page Saver for Firefox (http://pearlcrescent.com/products/pagesaver/) to create a very high quality image of the entire page and then convert that to a PDF (this is my preferred way to do it).
