As strokes are rendered it's always a good idea to remove them from artwork wherever possible to ensure 100% faithful reproduction. Set your design to the intended size and define a stroke width that you're happy with. Ensure that your design is one large composite path and duplicate it. In the duplicated version use Path -> Stroke to Path before moving it ...

The nature of the PDF can carry a lot of weight. There's no real solid guide to what exact repercussions may be without knowing the original application which generated the PDF and the setting (job options) used when creating the PDF itself. 1 Repercussions of opening a PDF which was not created by Photoshop in Photoshop: All art is rasterized. You ...

Illustrators page model is much closer to PDF. In fact PDF started out as a replacement/successor for Postscript and illustrator was and still is a postscript engine of sorts (it is now a PDF engine). This is a bit over optimistic tough. While illustrator can read a PDF file fine and can interpret most PDF features graphics wise to vector. There is a few ...

As indicated, it is always preferable to open the pdf in illustrator due it will keep the vectorial data of the pdf (of course, if there is in it). If you open the pdf in photoshop the file will be rasterized into an image, losing all the data. I think you'll have more chances for modifications within illustrator. Anyway, editing an exported pdf will be ...

This is an overly simplistic view of PDF and its capabilities. PDF is NOT an image file; it is possible that its sole contents is images, but that would be a special case. That said, Photoshop not a PDF editor; it can be used as a helper for raster images. When it comes to last second modifications, the products by Enfocus or Callas Software are the tools ...

Depending on the position you are aiming at, creating the resumé in Photoshop may disqualify you (for other positions, it may be a plus, of course). PDF is NOT an image; PDF is a complex document format, and whatever text you have should really not be an image, but, yeah, text. Among the Adobe tools, the tool of choice would be Illustrator (for 1 to 2 ...

You can make the Photoshop PDF to have the smallest file size, but also, with Acrobat you can then process the file again and it'll make it smaller, but beware that doing this will preserve the crisp in the fonts but you'll lose quality on images.

I'd suggest you don't use Photoshop. There's no viable reason one needs Photoshop for a resumé/CV. Using InDesign or Illustrator will inherently create faster loading PDFs (provided you are creating overly intricate artwork on the resume.) Even using Word or Pages may be better than Photoshop. If you must use Photoshop, I would save each page (although a ...

There are free online pdf to word converters available, which actually does a very good job. Example: http://www.smallpdf.com. So one option is you can convert your pdf file to word file using online converters and then start working on the word file. Second option is you can split the pdf file in to separate one for each page or the ones that you like to ...

A possible solution is to save for Word from Adobe Acrobat, then edit in Word again. Whether or not this is a viable solution depends upon the document itself. In general, detailed edits to PDFs are never an easy thing and it often requires reformatting in some other application and then subsequently re-exporting to PDF. Touch-up is one thing, actually ...

It's a whole bunch of metadata, including embedded JPEG thumbnails: You can open that PDF in a text editor and delete the entire block if you want, and the PDF still works: https://www.dropbox.com/s/l7saorb5zcxr3mf/stripped%20metadata.pdf?dl=0 (about 6kB) Or you can run it through Acrobat Pro and do the "Sanitize" command, which makes it even smaller ...

Select a little bit of text right at the top of the document, then scroll to the bottom and with the Shift key pressed, click the cursor right at the end of the text. Then select all (Ctrl-A) and you're ready to roll.

If the file is set up in reader spreads.... Export as PDF/X-1a file, single pages, with bleeds and marks. If the file is set up in printer spreads.... talk to your printer. For books and manuals most print providers really want single pages so they can properly address creep and gutters. You need to verify that printer spreads will be okay. Prepress ...

Found this answer on another website, and it's exactly what I was looking for so I wanted to share here. You see [the images] in Acrobat because they are embedded in the PDF file. But when you open them in Illustrator you are not opening the PDF, you are opening the native part of the file, in which your associate has linked the pictures (as ...

It’s been years since I had any problems with transparency of Inkscape-generated PDFs and if I had, those turned out to be a problem of the PDF viewer (or in one case: of an esoteric printer), not of Inkscape. Thus I would say that using a new version of Inkscape should fix such issues. That being said, since Inkscape 0.47 (from 2009), there is the option ...
