Design from print tutorial

PDF file

When a file is exporting can see progess:

Windows /utilities/ background task

Postscript files

To make

print/printer = Postscript file
PPD=Adobe PDF 9.0 (enables you to print up to A0)

Can use to create positives for screen printing bigger than A3

The output/Colour= separations is only available if its a laser printer or for postscript files

This creates a .ps file

Open in preview this converts to a pdf

To convert to a pdf adobe acrobat pro/ acrobat distiller converts .ps files inro pdfs

Can create printers spreads rather than readers spreads

Possibilities for working with using multiples

Save as a pdf with bleed and crop marks

file and place into your A2 document

With image selected Can use Edit/step and repeat

Horizantally and vertically offset by the width and height of your document

If there is a mistake change in your original file and reexport that.
