I will admit I am a total noob when it comes to this. I have a Word 2010 file that has images and when I do either Save As PDF or print using a PDFCreator, I always get images with jagged diagonal lines and generally of worse quality. I tried it with JPEG as well as PNG, I tried it with Word 2010 and OpenOffice. No luck.
I even turned image compression off in Word 2010...still compressed it.
What am I doing wrong? Surely, there is a way to keep some quality when it comes to images?
