Default Horrible Image Quality When Saving as PDF

I'm pretty tech savvy, and I've tried everything. Nothing has worked. I've
searched endlessly on google, only to find this problem continually shows up
without any solutions. I've even wasted money on 2 professional PDF programs.

Basically, I have created a word document. I inserted a .jpg image of sharp
quality (I've tried 72 dpi, 96 dpi, 300 dpi). I then save to PDF and the
images look atrocious. I have tried inserting the same image as a .bmp,
..png, and .tiff with no success. I have tried printing to PDF (then I get
horrible quality PLUS I lose my hyperlinks). I have tried saving as a
webpage to try to print that as a PDF. The images still look terrible.

It was hard finding any compression options in Word. The options I found I
set to the highest quality compression, or no compression at all. Nothing
has worked. I've spent endless hours and dollars.

The images look great in the .docx file. Why won't they save or print to
PDF with quality even remotely close???

Default Horrible Image Quality When Saving as PDF

It is hard to say what your problem is - but when testing here with both
Acrobat 8 (default settings) and the Office 2007 plug-in (iso19005-1 option
checked) the images in the PDF look to the naked eye exactly the same as
they do in the document at the same zoom level (bitmaps do not scale well).

Your mention of the Zoom level may be relevant. I usually work in Word at
100%, but I have Acrobat and Adobe Reader set to display "Full Page." Images
in PDFs often look horrible at that reduction, but if I zoom up to 100%,
they look fine. Some images still look terrible in PDFs but print perfectly
fine; I don't know why they look better in Word (some don't look great in
Word, either, of course, but print well).
