Chromium PDF
« on: November 06, 2019, 04:51:15 PM »


Compadre's been given a PDF to 'try and make vector'.

Cmd+D gives 'Skia/PDF . ... Producer 'Chromium'.

What, and from whence cometh, this ugly beast?

It is PDF made from Google Chrome on a Chromebook laptop (which is where the Chromium tag comes from) via going to a website and clicking Print and from there choosing to "Save as PDF". Like this:

Actually if the website is using actual text and not images on their website it will be vector for that. And if they use SVG vectors for logos it will also be vector. But if they used images for all of that stuff....well, fuhgeddaboudit.

Oddly enough I just made one of these today with Chrome to give a co-worker instructions for how to setup her email on her tablet.

You could also use the old designer trick of opening the .pdf in Illustrator, and saving it as an .eps! One big rectangle of a vector image... the same size as the .pdf, but still...

Seriously, most likely the only way it's going to become vector art is if it's recreated as vector art.

Here's a happy ending.
-it was already high contrast
-my compadre's been doing this shite since Sun Sparc Workstations
-He 'cleaned it up' in PhSh
-did a creditable job in Illy with Live Trace

Who woulda thought...  :smiley:

...  thanks all for the input.  :hello:
