CC Bridge 2019 PDF exports look very pixelated

I was using CC Bridge 2017 with the Output plugin to export multiple assets as a PDF for pin-ups and the exports looked perfectly fine both digitally and print.

I now have upgraded to a new Mac and the latest update of CC so all my softwares are the 2019 version. Bridge now will not export in the resolution that's on screen. I matched my output settings (image quality: 100%, resolution: 300 ppi) as the previous version of Bridge that I was using (2017) and the difference in quality is very noticeable. The newer version exports the PDFs as a very low resolution file and I've tried reformatting all my settings, cache, etc.

Since I use Bridge to export multiple files at once for reviews, can anyone share if they had this issue and how they were able to fix it?

Thanks.

Hi Paolo Duarte,

In Output Work space go to output Settings->Documents -> Image Quality  set it to Maximum and then try to import as pdf. If still you are facing this issue please provide the screen shot of the exported pdf and the image before exporting. Also provide image info like format ,dimensions and resolution

Thanks,

Avinash

II fixed my issue. I removed the image in question and replaced it in the bookmark I was designing. This time I resized JUST the placer box then right clicked and chose fill proportionately. I think in resizinf with INND it screws up resolutions Unlike Photshop which is much easier to work with images like this. I wish InDesign would handle photo movement and sizing like Photshop, its such a pain the way it is.

I'm having the same issue. Here are the settings I'm using and the resulting pdf. I've also tried converting the files to jpegs and I get the same result.

The resulting thumbnails are super pixelated. I've never had this issue with non-CC versions.

All this sounds like you are using cached data, not the actual data. 

 

Which OS are you using and what release. 

 

And please, what release of Bridge are you using?

 

Thank you,

I've deleted all cached data.

The funny thing is that when I make an export in the highest possible quality from Indesign to pdf , and I use in Bridge this pdf document in stead of the original indesign document, the quality goes up. Still not sufficient, but better. 

I've put sofware rendering on, but no luck ther either

Hi Paolo
Adobe Bridge cannot generate high quality PDFs from PDF source documents. If you save your source files as .psd Photoshop documents or .jpgs then the PDFs that Bridge outputs look fine. But if you first save your source files as PDFs in Photoshop and then use those PDFs to output a multiple page PDF in Bridge, the multiple page PDFs look horrible!
