Barcode detail gets lost in PDF

I have a barcode as an eps file.

I open it and it looks fine.

I give it to my artist, who tells me it also looks fine on his end.

When he drops it into the PDF and send it back, it's all scrunched up.

Thoughts?

Thanks

> he drops it into the PDF

How does he "drop" it in? Maybe it's resizing (and, in this case, "scrunching") the EPS file based on the properties of the PDF file. One idea is to covert the EPS bar code to an image file format (GIF, JPG, PNG, etc.) and then do an "Add Image" in Acrobat, which should retain the size, but also provide sizing handles that will retain the aspect ratio, i.e., proportionally resize without "scrunching". Regards, Joe

Good idea. Convert to an image should solve this. Thanks

You're welcome. I used that approach recently for placing QR codes and Code39 bar codes into PDFs — it worked well. Regards, Joe
