What are yo using for the conversion to pdf. Normally in options you can set the quality for jpg conversion inside the pdf.

You must resize the image outside of WORD using an image editor (ie Photoshop) and then Insert Picture WITHOUT RESIZING.

If you let WORD resize the image, it becomes pixelated when converted to PDF.

akajohn - i've tried both primopdf and the pdf creator function in word 2007 - what options are you referring to.

sjklein42 - i don't have access to photoshop, could you suggest a more accessible alternative if there is one please?

If you don't have photoshop or want to install a large free app like GIMP, you can resize jpegs online as well using an online tool like: http://www.webresizer.com/resizer/

Just checking here but I just exported to pdf  in Word 2007 and could see any degradation. I chose the "publish online" in the pdf save as dialog as opposed to the minimum size.

Please check attachment.

Thanks for all your suggestions but in the end it was simply a case of checking 'publish online' option...
