Photoshop/Bridge CS4 PDF Presentation Update or Plug-in

  1. Default Photoshop/Bridge CS4 PDF Presentation Update or Plug-in

    Full Parameter PDF Presentation is essential for me.

    PDF Presentation (as in Photoshop - Bridge CS2 and CS3) with panels for selection of presentation prameters and saving with various levels of jpeg compression and image quality, presets and output color conversion, etc. . This was not only a very useful feature, but has become a required component of my workflow over the past three years. This to shoot all imaages in RAW, upload files to Bridge, develop a wide range of selected images with Camera RAW and then produce a PDF slide show of 20-25 'proofs' while still in Bridge with a size of 10-15MB that can be emailed to various recipients for review and final selection. Final selections are then fine truned in Photoshop for printing. While some of the improvements in CS4 are useful, CS3 at present is more satisfactory and remains more useful than the CS4 upgrade. Addition of this feature as an update or legacy plug-in (the basic componets exist in CS4) would be more than acceoptable and allow me to complete the upgrade to CS4. Your attention and help will be very much appreciaated!

    You could try with the Output workspace in Bridge to see if that satisfy your requirement.

    Thank you. The output module provides only selection of presentation parameters but does not provide the PDF Presets panel previuosly included in the Photoshop CS2 and CS3 tool. As a result the presentation file size is about 80MB for 20 images which is much too large for email distribution.

    I'd like to get the PDF Presentation back as well. Simply put, the the "Output" module in Bridge yields terrible quality relative to file size. My workflow depends upon the PDF presentation module as well. Under CS3 I could put together a PDF with a resolution of about 1800x900 for a 20 spread/40 side wedding album and it would look relatively decent for its purpose and size wise it would be between 3 to 4 megs. The new Output module in Bridge by comparison, even when set to low quality the file size is 23 megs which is totally unusable. I was hoping it was included in the legacy scripts but I didn't see it.

    I'm not too familiar with Photoshop's topology. Where did it (the PDF Presentation Script) live under CS3? I used to be a software engineer (C++ and some Java) so I'm thinking I might have enough of those brain cells left over to extract it from CS3 and get it working in CS4 (assuming that it was part of a script).

    Cheers, Joe

    Thanks for your comments. I don't know the software part at all, but the component missing in the CS4 PDF Presentaation routine is the PDF Presets panel which is still in CS4. It would seem therefor possible to add this to the routine to make it equivalent to CS3 and CS2.

    In any event I have submitted a Feature Request/Bug Report Form to offer this as a legacy feature, update, add-on or whatever. It would help if you wouild submit a request as well.

    In the meantime I will continue to use CS3 instead of CS4.
