    I have inserted a pdf and a jpeg into my Microsoft Office Publisher document
    and they are both printing blurry. The rest of the document is fine. Is there
    a way to fix this? Thanks.

  2. depends on the quality of the original image.

    I've never had good luck with inserting pdf as an object and having it look
    good, so I usually convert it to a non-lossy image file first...like .tif or
    ..png. etc.

    Thanks. I will try saving as a tif. The pdf prints fine outside of Publisher
    (in Adobe InDesign) but once I place it in Publisher it is very blurry. I did
    save it as a jpeg and it wasn't much better quality than the pdf.

    InDesign is designed to import PDFs, Publisher just treats it as an OLE
    object, leading to inconsistencies.

    JPEGs are not a terribly good file format for the sort of information
    typically stored in PDFs. You'd be better off looking at PNG. Also, look
    at increasing the resolution you're exporting at - if you're exporting
    at screen resolution, then it will be blurry.
