It Was Here a Minute Ago!


Have you ever tried to incorporate a file sent to you only to find that the page disappears when you make a PDF? Or has someone emailed you an image from a church event and even though you place it on a bulletin page, it disappears once you turn the file into PDF? These pictures may be too big in file size for Adobe to embed. 

The solution is an easy fix. Simply save any photo as a TIF file and then reinsert into your bulletin. This will reduce the file size of your document so when you create a PDF file for printing, Adobe will embed your images. 

Follow these instructions to save your photos to a TIF file:

Place and resize your picture in Publisher.  

Right click and choose: Save as picture.

A new window will open. Hit the down arrow on the right in the Save as type option.  

Select Tag Image File Format.  This is saving it as a TIF file. Under Resolution click on Change and choose High quality printing 300 dpi if you have this option.  

Click on OK and then Save.

Delete the original picture and click on Insert, Picture and click on Browse. Insert this new TIF file.  Now when creating a PDF file of your bulletin, the image will stay put.

Be sure to take the time to look through the pages of your PDF file before uploading it for printing just in case you find something is missing on a page. Remember, we only see and receive the PDF file, so be sure to look over and print that version of the bulletin to check for errors.
