I've made a huge mistake. I found a cool template for a resume that I liked and spent hours making it what I wanted in photoshop only to find out that saving as PDF makes all the text look blurry. I've tried converting the text layers to objects but it doesn't seemed to have helped. I have the entire adobe suite, is there anything that can be done? I don't know how to transfer PSD files to other apps. I tried with indesign but it shows up extremely blurry when I use the "place" function. Any help is appreciated.
Much of any output quality will depend upon specifics regarding any canned template you've downloaded. It's entirely possible the resolution of such a template is below optimum settings. However, using Live Type Layers within Photoshop should generally yield good results provided any PDF job options are set accordingly (and the Photoshop file is high quality).
Overall, Photoshop is not the most wonderful of tools to use for a resume. Photoshop is an image editor not a type layout application. Sure you can do some layout with it, but in many instances you probably shouldn't. This is compounded if the the resume in question has nothing to do with a design career or related field.
form vs function
A resume is to be used to convey information in the most easily ingested format. Often a screen reader or OCR application is used to process resumes. By getting too "artsy" with a resume you can create problems for potential employers. And one problem with your resume surely means no call back.
Even for a designer, using Photoshop to create a resume is ill advised. It is simply not the correct tool. And rest assured, potential employers can see what app generated a PDF. Many employers may frown heavily if they discover Photoshop was used for your resume. This shows a basic misunderstanding of what tool to use for what job.
In any event, there is no 1:1 conversion from Photoshop to any other application. In all most every instance objects or elements may need to be rebuilt in another application because there's no direct conversion from Photoshop.
Illustrator may allow one to retain any live type from Photoshop by merely opening the .psd file with Illustrator and choosing the correct options to "create layers". Using Illustrator can be okay for a resume but be very careful to avoid too many linked/placed raster elements and too much "art" overall.
The optimum method would be to generate your resume in InDesign if you have it and are familiar with it.
Text is preferred for resumes... even using Microsoft Word is generally better than using Photoshop for a resume. Photoshop is not the "be-all-end-all" and using it can, in some cases, be a detriment not a benefit.
