qualityparameter lets you adjust the resolution level to use when flattening transparent objects in your PDF. Low quality is ideal for proofs that will be printed on black-and-white desktop printers and for documents that will be published on the web. Medium quality is best for desktop proofs and documents that will be printed on color printers. High quality is ideal for final press outputs when high quality separations-based color proofs are needed.
