Hi,

Anyone know how to create a publisher-ready 300dpi PDF from a PSD file in Photoshop 8?  I did it five years ago, but for the life of me, I cannot figure out how I did it and also can't find instructions online.

Thanks!

Chris

Photoshop 8 is nearly 20 years old, so who knows!

With recent versions, you would ensure your image has a resolution of around 300PPI and Save the document as a Photoshop PDF and from the subsequent Adobe PDF Preset drop-down menu, you'd select the type of PDF specified by your printer (e.g. PDF/X-4).

Doesn't address the issue, but thanks. I was able to do this in the past, but I can't figure out how and, as mentioned, I'm unable to find instructions online addressing it (no doubt because of the age of my version).

Thanks Barbara, but that didn't address the issue. I appreciate the effort though. Cheers.

Wow. This post made me travel back in time. ¡Photoshop 8!

In this case, maybe is a good idea to ask your print provider if you can send the original PSD file.

Thanks Marlon, but PSD won't work. I'm working off this old verison because 99% of the time I only use Photoshop for my website pics and version 8 is more than sufficient. Cheers.
