    Well thank you Mr. Applebaum! Without (hopefully!) pulling your "emotional-string" (re: your touching bio)... I do believe SJ and Apple are as close to the heart as you and Lucy. SJ will surely be leaving us before Apple this time around. I sincerely hope that his presence, spirit, and the respect that he deserves lives on in the heart of Apple, as your Lucy does in yours. I also hope that someone comes along to embody that drive, and do only half of what he has accomplished(!!!)

    Head's up and health to ya "Ol' Chap"... a lot of fun stuff to explore over the next 20 or more years!

    The original page creation application (InDesign or something else) for page layout that uses embedded jpegs/tifs/whatever and they will still be jpegs/tifs/whatever in the PDF. And per the original article ad your original response, everything is simply a bunch of big images (not vectors).


    It is certainly not the case that every PDF is necessarily a container for one big bitmap, and therefore no better than a JPG, which is what your original reply to my post stated.

    However, if there is a bitmap or jpeg in the pdf then that portion of the pdf is still only jpeg/bitmap.

    If you have a jpeg opened in Photoshop and print to PDF, it is still simply a PDF with an embedded jpeg.


    The iPad has built in support for displaying PDFs

    What if the PDF has flash embedded?
