How to save a PDF file using Illustrator CS, CS2 and CS3

If you are using an earlier version of Illustrator and have access to Acrobat Standard or Professional (not Acrobat Reader) version 6 or later, please see the instructions on how to create a PDF file using Acrobat. If you do not have access to Acrobat, please see the instructions for Illustrator 10 or the instructions for Illustrator 8 and 9.

For CS & CS2: Make sure your ad conforms to Source Interlink Media's Digital Guidelines; specifically, all spot colors must be converted to process.
• To do this, open your Illustrator file and choose Select > All, then choose Filters > Colors > Convert to CMYK for color ads.
• For black and white ads, choose Filters > Colors > Convert to Grayscale instead.
For CS3: Select Edit > Edit Colors > Convert to CMYK and for black and white ads, select Edit > Edit Colors > Convert to Grayscale.
