JSM PDF Preflight Profiles

Acrobat Overprint Preview

The default settings for Adobe Acrobat don’t work well for proofing in a prepress environment. To accurately see how your job will print you need to adjust the overprint preview settings in Acrobat. This movie shows you what your file will look like if they are not set correctly and how to change those settings so Acrobat can be used to preview files.


Adobe PDF ppd

This is the generic printer description file from Adobe for use with Acrobat Distiller. It is normally installed with Acrobat, so download it here only if it is missing from your installation.
