I'm pushing for a Friday deadline, but I started wondering what the best way to embed a word image in a document is. A few of my previous articles have looked incredibly ugly because I have a resized screen capture somewhere dropped in there,
Two weeks back, I had discussed that screen dump utility. But when the bullet hits the metaphorical bone, what happens?
The attached document was generated in Microsoft Word 2002, running on Windows XP. I then used PDF 995 to generate PDFs of the document.
The four quadrants show different output options: a PNG grabbed by an alt-printscreen screengrab, a PNG generated from my little dump utility, and two EPS's generated by the dump utility. One of them was imported into Illustrator, then exported with fonts embedded. The other is placed pretty much just as it was exported. Note that it doesn't use the lettershapes feature, so the EPS contains only raw text.
I have it at 100% and reduced to a nicely hard-to-divide number. 46%.March 16, 2004 06:05 PM | TrackBack | in Data and Documents
