I need to edit a pdf file with photoshop and then export it back to PDF. Is there a way to maintain the orginal resolution while keeping size same as original one ? FYI, the PDF file is around 400K but the PS file is 10Mb.

If you have a full copy of Acrobat as well as Photoshop, you can do all of your editing in Photoshop, close the file, then right-click on the PSD file and choose "Convert to Adobe PDF" and it will do just that - create a PDF based on your Photoshop file.

Can we control the resolution under PS, and then save it directly to PDF ?

You save to Photoshop PDF while Photoshop is still open. It is under File>Save and Save as...

You have to realize that when Photoshop opens a PDF, all vector is rasterized to bitmap, so resolution is important when you save.

Yes, you can save in any resolution you want.

Yes, you can save in any resolution you want.
However if you create text on a text layer in a Photoshop PDF it will remain as vector data. This means in Acrobat the file will have active PDF text.

If you make text that rasterises in Photoshop, Acrobat 9 or X will try to OCR the text so i will be "live", unles you have a PDF 1a/b document.
