EZ-PDF, from Acquired Knowledge
With EZ-PDF, a prepress pro can set up PDF Distiller menu settings for a client's typical work and "package" them for the clients to use. EZ-PDF also includes pre-defined styles for common types of work such as digital advertising, large-format output or Web viewing. EZ-PDF can be configured to accept and/or automatically fill in job ticket information, according to the Portable Job Ticket Format specification defined by Adobe Systems.
