For iMac Users - iMacs make PDFs without the need for external apps/programs/software - however, the PDFs always turn out humungous - that's because the default is set at maximum. iMacs allow users to build their own filters for PDF compression without losing quality for book printing purposes, but it requires to user to go 'behind the scenes' of the iMac, and not many are comfortable with that. I found a tutorial on Youtube. The chap is quite down to earth, and his instructions easy to follow - I had the youtube video running as I went through making my various filters, since you can stop/go the youtube video, it was quite illuminating creating my filters. I use those filters after I finished creating the cover file (in my case it is a .rif proprietory file type of Corel Painter 2015 - for Photoshop it would be something like .PDD [there are other versions of Photoshop file extensions]). I save the file to .jpg, then open the .jpg file, and print it to PDF by choosing one of my filters, depending on the size of the original .jpg.
Since we have so many Vietnamese spammers in this forum at present - I won't put a live link, but only the written URL - you need to copy and paste it into your browser to see the video.
