Do they say whether it has to be CMYK or RGB though, or what profiles to use? Normally, a printer should say what settings they want (in the Acrobat job options) as they can vary according to how this will be printed.
Hi there Lois! I'm not a publisher, I'm a photographer, for goodness sake. I've never had any trouble with any of the numerous publications to which I have supplied images. This is all new to me. Here's the deal:

This is for an ad. It is simply a black and white logo. I'll attach a small jpeg of it if I can figure out how. This isn't a slick publication, and I believe 200ppi is plenty. It will probably be on fairly cheap paper. I've done the tiff in PS at 1100 X 825. I don't think, even if they enlarge it to 300ppi, that there will be any degradation in quality.

Here's my main problem. I cannot find how you set up a page size in Acrobat. I'm sure it's right there in front of me, but I sure can't find it. The page will be 6" X 9", the ad will use half the page, thus the 5.5" X 4.125" requirement. Where exactly do I enter the page size?

I meant to add the image to this message, but I added it to the first message in the thread.
