Exported PDF doesn't keep artboard dimensions

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone.

I work with UI Design and in my workflow it's common to export the artboard in PDF and send to the client for approval.

Unfortunately, when I export a full hd artboard (1920x1080 px) the resulting PDF has 8000 x 6667px, what makes it weird when seen in a 1920x1080 display.

I`m still getting used to the exporting feature, so it`s possible that I`ve missed some configuration. :(

Can anyone help?

Hi erimoitinho,

Would you be able to attach your AFdesign file, along with the resulting PDF and also your export settings you are using. Also how are you measuring the resolution of the PDF?

 

Thanks,

Hi Sean,

 

Links to the files:

PDF: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B_0X9iTm-brzTlNvaVFUOEhHV1E

 

I'm using the default "PDF for Web" with 72 DPI for raster.

My colleague opened the resulting PDF with Photoshop, that's how I knew the resolution wasn't right.

 

Thank you for your time.

If I set the document resolution to 72 dpi (instead of the 96 dpi it is) and export to PDF, this is what I see in PS after opening the first page.

Hi Erimoitinho,

What you are seeing is correct. You're document is set to 96 DPI with each artboard set to 1920x1080. If I open the PDF in Photoshop using these settings the resolution is correct. The 72 DPI is used when objects on the page are needed to be rasterised and not the entire document.
