    I have Adobe CS3 (Illistrator and Photoshop) and Corel Draw 15. A customer is trying to send me a file she created in Power Point, it is a combination of Fonts and Images. I asked her to send it as a PDF. Everything is fuzy when I try to open the PDF. I was also having trouble since I did not have some of the Fonts. I am not familiar with Power Point. I did not want to print from a jpeg. Can you convert fonts to lines or curves in Power Point? Why is the PDF so fuzy when I try and user it in my programs? Does anyone have a possible solution. I undersand that Power Point is for presentations and I have Vector Programs but I still need to be able to print these.

    I would assume the PDF contains and "image" of the Power Point @ a low resolution and not vector data.

    Is there any way to fix this and get a high resolution image?

    It's "fuzzy" because Powerpoint is a presentation program that is intended for screen viewing, so the DPI is 72, 96 max with an overall pixel count of probably something like 1024x768. Likely the PDF is just a rasterized image of each slide as well.

    Recreate it from scratch, charge for it. This is what the "acceptable file formats" part of your submission guidelines is for.

    Have images sent separately, packaged in a zipped file folder.
