Adjust PDF Print Quality and Reduce PDF File Size
Image is an important part of PDF document. Image quality is measured by image resolution in DPI (dots per inch), and it greatly affects PDF print quality. The default image resolution in Microsoft PDF to PDF printer is 600 x 600 dpi. However, this repair tool allows you to upgrade to 1200 x 1200 dpi to make images and graphics in PDF document more clear, or downgrade resolution to 300x300 or even lower to reduce PDF file size.

PDF Print Quality Adjust PDF resolution in DPI
