Image Resolution Management for PDF Output

The quality of images in PDF output generated from Word, PowerPoint, and PixelPerfect reports can be regulated according with the JPEG compression parameter (refer to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/JPEG#Effects_of_JPEG_compression):

  • PowerPoint: High = 100, Medium = 60, Low = 20
  • Word: High = 100, Medium = 66, Low = 33
  • Excel: option not available
  • PixelPerfect: High, Medium, Low
