Web-optimised PDFs from QuarkXPress

This post continues from my previous post, explaining how to output a print-quality PDF via PostScript from QuarkXPress. It explains what further options you must enable in order to get the file size down as small as possible, without sacrificing too much quality.

I personally distill my PostScript files to a preset I set up myself called ‘internet’. It gives smaller file sizes than Distiller’s own preset ‘smallest file size’. I arrived at these settings through trial and error, but they work well for me. Click on the images below to start a slide-show. Again, if you’ve anything to add, please post a comment.
