Saving the final PDF

I suggest using the PDF/X-1a setting as your starting point. It's a good all-encompassing setting.  But depending on your needs, you might choose another one.


I won't discuss all the PDF settings.  You know better than I do about what you need in terms of crop marks and so forth, so you can set it up to your requirements.

I do make one recommendation, though.  It's a very good idea to not allow any of the images to be higher resolution than you need.  It just makes the file bigger, for no purpose.  So if your print resolution is 300ppi, for example, make sure everything is exactly 300ppi.  And change the jpeg setting from the default "Maximum" to "High":
