    I have a vector-art logo in Illustrator, and I want to save it as A PDF. But when I save the PDF and open it in Acrobat, the logo looks horribly jagged! I've tried changing the setting when I save the PDF but nothing fixes this.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Is the art indeed VECTOR or is it some embedded image from Photoshop placed in Illustrator? make sure the logo is not made in TEXT...if it is, then convert the text to OUTLINES before saving as a pdf! let me know some more info please and maybe I can help u with this! :)

    Also you could be saving in a more low resolution setting but I am not sure at this point!

    Also, vector images can sometimes look a bit jagged when they are made into PDF's. It's just the way the screen renders them. Try printing out your PDF file and see how it looks on paper. That's the real test.
