Under the Print menu, for the Safve PDF to JPEG option, is there an option to save to a high quality JPEG?

    The pixel size of the jpeg will depend on the paper size you selected - a larger paper size will give a larger pixel size of the resulting jpeg, but I don't think there is a quality slider anywhere.  When I export an image version with a jpeg original from the print dialog, the file size does not change much and I see no difference in quality, so I assume the quality will be high by default.

     

    I like to use this export settings:

     

    Print > Pdf > Save PDF to Aperture

    and in the "Import" panel select "Jpeg".

     

    For example: exporting a file with the paper size set to A4, will result in a jpeg with a pixelsize 2338 × 1652 (3,9 MP), exporting to a custom size 40x60 cm gives a jpeg with 3150 × 4725 (14,9 MP).

     

    Regards

    Fwiw, I looked high and low and couldn't find it or any news of it.

     

    Excellent workflow -- I am going to incorporate it.  Thx.

      Thanks for the confirmation, Kirby.

     

     

    BTW, this could be a substitute for BorderFX in the long run:

    Print to PDF and save as JPG?  (Trouble-shooting BorderFX is near the top of my list.  I'm hoping to get to it today.  I miss it.)  Thanks for the work-around.

    The Print dialog let's you add all kinds of meta data to the border, with different fonts and sizes, but BorderFX is much more versatile.

     

    If you double-click on the screenshot I posted, you can see the border and caption.
