Export to Acrobat PDF

Recommended Posts

What is the path to exporting an image file which can be processed by Acrobat into an at scale printable document. I note that exporting to Tiff files apparently exports only the active layer.

On a mac, go to chooser and select Acrobat PDF Writer. Do your normal page setup and instead of printing hardcopy, you will be generating a pdf file.

I do not have Acrobat PDF Printer. I have tried sending Tiff file to Adobe website for translation, without success, to see if Acrobat works, before buying it. Do you know, is PDF Printer only available with Acrobat?

I am not sure if anyone else offers PDF Writer. I do know that I have had excellent success writing files direct from my VW files. I am on a G4/350.

I use Adobe Illustrator 8 to convert files to PDF. In VW, I print to a virtual printer, saving the file as a postscript, including all fonts. Illustrator can open the PS file and save as PDF. This may work for the online PDF maker as well. I do plan on purchasing Acrobat someday to make this process easier, but Illustrator works great for now.

There is a neat piece of shareware called Print to PDF by James W Walker which works via the Chooser and only costs 10 or 20 bucks. Works pretty well.<www.jwwalker.com> Good luck.
