  • Feature Resolution, Font embedding, CMYK colour, File types?

    I create book covers for a small press publishers and have in the past used acrobat standard V6.

    I've downloaded the 30 day free download version of foxit standard with a view to buying a copy if it works correctly.

    These book covers are 600dpi resolution and in CMYK colour.

    There does not appear to be any way of setting up the resolution for the pdfs - does foxit automatically create the pdf in the same dpi as the original document or do I have to do something to make it do that?

    It's just that when I normally use acrobat standard it creates very large files and the foxit files appear to be much smaller.

    Also acrobat needs EPS files to convert but foxit appears to need TIF files - will that make any difference to the final product?
    Is it possible to use EPS files as the source files?

    If I have the original as CMYK will the PDF also be as CMYK?

    As a final question...

    Does foxit embed fonts in text files automatically or do I have to change the settings to make it do this?

    Hi Persius,

    Before the conversion, you can open the "Properties" of Foxit Reader/PhantomPDF Printer, then go under "General"->set the resolution. If you could open the EPS files on your side, then you can print to Foxit Reader/PhantomPDF Printer to get them converted. The default Fonts setting of Foxit Reader/PhantomPDF Printer is "Embed all fonts". You may check it by open"Properties" of the PDF Printer->"Fonts".
