Adobe PDF -> Save As -> PostScript... final result is lighter than before...
Posted on 2011-09-02
I am trying to remove duplicate fonts from a PDF. The only way I seem to be able to do this is by saving the document as PostScript, then running distiller, which removes the duplicate fonts.
However, at some point, either when the PDF is saved as PostScript, or when the PostScript is converted back to PDF (even before I run distiller), the images are lighter than they are in the original PDF.
I tried changing a bunch of settings, but nothing seems to get the images to stay the same shade... Alternatively, is there a way to make a PDF darker?
