Embed fonts in PDFs without doing a thing

Added on Saturday 16th of May 2009 12:47 am EST


Adobe Photoshop CS/CS2/CS3/CS4

Operating Systems:

Macintosh, Microsoft Windows

I created a postcard in Photoshop CS3, which has a few font layers, and saved the file as a PDF. I am surprised, however that I did not see an option anywhere to embed fonts in the PDF. How do I know if my fonts are truly embedded?

Actually, you don’t need to tell Photoshop to embed fonts anymore. Unless you’re running version CS, that is. In version CS, when you choose File > Save and select PDF from the Format pop-up menu, you’re presented with a trimmed-down PDF Options dialog box. As shown in Figure A, you need to select the Embed Fonts check box. Earlier Photoshop versions didn’t provide too many PDF options, in contrast to the current CS4 Save Adobe PDF dialog box shown in Figure B. But nowhere in this plethora of options will you find an Embed Fonts check box.
