Some ppl either don't know how, or are too lazy, to click on a download link and wait a minute.I did come unstuck (notice I'm using past tense here) a few times with non-integrity/still vector-present PDFs, so would often, instead, Export a plate-faithful PDF outa Black Magic. They could get big, but I then downsized them with a Custom Optimise in Acrobat.This is also a dementia test for me; hope you don't mind too much.
Quote from: Joe on June 08, 2020, 08:46:14 AMJust wondering why you need to get the file size small enough to email and why do you need to rasterize them? There are several free services to upload PDF's to and send download links to people. The best representation would be a file with fonts embedded and not rasterized.
Quote from: AaronH on June 10, 2020, 09:03:23 AMI have enough customers who request rasterized eproofs, one of them requests a high enough resolution that I have to let them know it's on the FTP site. I have no idea why, these people seem to think it's more accurate.Otherwise, for size reasons, most of our customers can't figure out how dropbox, hightail, wetransfer or our own ftp site works. We also just bought out another printer here in town and have absorbed all their employees. Their customers are used to rasterized PDF proofs from out of InDesign somehow (They didn't have a RIP really).There really is no winning.
Quote from: Joe on June 10, 2020, 09:17:14 AMThat is easy. Export as a JPEG from ID. Open JPEG in Acrobat and Save As PDF.Realistically you are playing with fire if you don't let your your RIP export a PDF proof for a customer via the same method as your internal proof files and plate files are made so that all have a really good chance of producing the same output.
