Quality Options

On the Quality tab in the Presentation Settings dialog box, you can control the presentation's image and audio qualities, based on how you intend to use the presentation:

  • Click the Publish For drop-down arrow and choose My Computer, Adobe Connect Pro, or Adobe PDF to optimize the levels automatically, or select the options manually.
  • To specify Flash movie preloading options, select the Control Preloading checkbox and choose one of the following settings, based on your presentation's characteristics:
    • Download Slides Completely Before Playback. Choose this option if users are likely to use slow download speeds to view the presentation. It will take a short while to download all the slide contents and will delay the start of the presentation, but there won't be interruptions during the presentation.
    • Disable Preloading of Embedded Flash Content. Choose this option if you have multiple Flash movies in your presentation, and two or more are on consecutive slides. This way, the first movie must finish playing before the second one can start playing.
  • To save some time in configuring future projects, select the Use These Settings for New Presentations checkbox.

For the most part, Presenter's default choices for image quality are fine—with a few exceptions. To prevent blurry content, be sure to set image quality to high in your presentation if it includes charts, Smart Art, WordArt, Quick Styles, or shapes using 3D effects such as shadows. Because you can view presentations on mobile devices such as cell phones and PDAs that use Flash Lite 3, use the low-quality setting for images and audio to reduce the size of the finished file if you intend your output for mobile devices.
