Hi everyone, 

I want to learn, if is there any way for saving the Illustrator file as a PDF with the high dpi but compressed but also cannot be changed or copied as like a image?

 

I'm working for one printing company, before sending the files to the prints, we have to get a confirm from the clients, the problem is now we saw couple of the clients are just steeling the designs, so I wanna create one file seems like PDF but actually is not a PDF :). My solution was exporting the file as PNG and after with Adobe Acrobat chanching it back to the PDF, but I'm in search of a more easy solution.. Any idea? 

Thanks!

Kedy,

 

For CMYK printing, a PNG will destroy the colours because it is RGB so you will get a double conversion.

 

To reduce to a CMYK raster image you can use TIFF.

 

But still, with a raster image good enough (and large enough in file size), it is possible for anyone to recreate a(n inferior) vector version.

 

The best way is to ensure agreement on copyright/nonstealing. Or, even better, avoid dodgy partners.

Dear Jacob - I posted a question in the "How To" called Using Image Trace within Illustrator - could you have a look at that

Cheers Bruce McGrath
