Some versions of Creating Keepsakes Scrapbook Designer offer the Save As PDF option in the File menu. And, that option will allow you select the desired resolution for the PDF file. However, your Options settings will determine how many resolution options will be offered.
If you select Options in the Tools menu, then click in the box next to Optimal Printing Resolution (to place a checkmark in that box), the Save As PDF options you will later see will be 75 dpi, 150 dpi, 300 dpi and 600 dpi.
But, if there is no checkmark in the box next to Optimal Printing Resolution, the only Save As PDF options you will see will be 75 dpi and 150 dpi.
If you would prefer to save your project with a higher dpi setting than 600, or if you experience problems when trying to use the Save As PDF option, you should be able to easily use the File | Print option to print to PDF. It would, however, be best to select the PDF driver BEFORE going to File | Print - just in case the PDF driver causes the project to be changed or shifted in any way.
To select the PDF driver, click on Printer Setup then Print Setup in the File menu. When the Print Setup window opens, change the Printer Name to the Broderbund PDF Converter, then click on the Properties button. When the Properties window opens, you can select the desired resolution for the project. Resolution options for the Broderbund PDF converter are 72 dpi, 150 dpi, 300 dpi, 600 dpi and 1200 dpi.
After selecting the desired resolution, click on OK until you are returned to the workspace. Look the project over to make sure that selecting the PDF driver didn't change anything. When you are sure that everything looks right, you are ready to go to File | Print.
If you would rather not use the Broderbund PDF converter, you can use any PDF driver which is installed on your computer.
CutePDF Writer, which is a free download from here
is a popular alternative to the Broderbund PDF Converter.
