    Who is still using Acrobat Distiller?

    I was proofreading a technote which described how some problem could be fixed using specific Adobe Acrobat Distiller settings. It made me wonder if there are actually still people using Distiller. Are there? If so, why? Distiller is still a part of Acrobat so one can only assume there is still...

    I've just added a page with the main 2014 prepress and printing news to my site. From that page you can jump back one year at a time, all the way to 1984. It can be a fun thing to do if things are a bit slow at work :-) Please let me know if there are any major things I overlooked.

    Levels editing tool for PDFs

    I recently got asked if there is a tool that allows you to use Photoshop-alike curves to color correct PDFs.
