To create a high-resolution PDF with images, you can follow these steps:

1. Prepare your Images: Ensure that the images you plan to include in the PDF have a suitable resolution. Ideally, use images with a resolution of 300 DPI or higher for optimal print quality.

2. Open your PDF Creation Software: Use a software program like Adobe Acrobat, Adobe InDesign, Microsoft Word, or other PDF creation tools.

3. Import Images: Insert your images into the document. You can either copy and paste the images directly or use the software's image insertion function. Make sure to position and resize the images as desired.

4. Adjust Image Settings: Select each image individually and check its properties or settings. Look for options related to image quality, resolution, and compression. Ensure that the images are set to their highest resolution and quality settings.

5. Embed Fonts: If you are using custom fonts in your document, make sure to embed them to ensure proper rendering. This step helps maintain the appearance of your text, even if the recipient doesn't have the specific fonts installed on their system.

6. Set PDF Output Settings: Look for the "Save" or "Export" options in your PDF creation software. Before saving the PDF, check the output settings. Here are some key settings to consider:

- Compression: Choose an appropriate compression setting that balances file size and image quality. Avoid over-compressing, as it can lead to visible artifacts. If available, select options that maintain the highest image quality.

- Color Space: Determine whether your PDF is intended for print or digital use. For print, use the CMYK color space, while for digital use, use the RGB color space.

- Resolution: Set the resolution to 300 DPI or higher for high-quality printing. This resolution ensures that images and text appear sharp and detailed.

- Bleed and Trim: If your PDF is intended for print and requires bleed and trim marks, make sure to enable those options in the output settings.

- PDF Version: Select a PDF version that suits your needs. Choose a higher version if you require additional features, but keep in mind compatibility with older PDF viewers.

7. Save the PDF: Specify the file name and location to save your PDF. Click "Save" or "Export" to generate the high-resolution PDF file with embedded images.

Please note that the specific steps and options may vary depending on the software you are using. Consult the documentation or help resources for your chosen software for precise instructions on adjusting the settings for high-resolution PDF creation with images.
