    So I've done a powerdpoint document which is about 65 pages for my product design.

    When I export a PDF from powerpoint for mac it comes out without errors but all the colours are dull and shadow effects on the photos are bad... When I export all the slides in a picture format such as tiff's then combine the tiffs into a PDF document the document comes out much better.

    The file was originally created on a pc but not sure if this would affect anything.

    What can I check to improve the PDF output from powerpoint? I have CS4 installed and Acrobat Pro in it although I don't think its needed for this.

    Any suggestions?

    You could try "saving as pdf" from the Print menu, that has always given me good results. It helps if you set a custom paper size that is the size of your slide, and has zero margins, or else you will get big white margins around each slide.

    OK that seemed to help. I printed to pdf with a custom paper size. Looks better quality but the first page has nothing on except the background? :S

    any settings that tell objects not to print?
