Better PDF export on the admin

PDF export still lacks quality for the printing industry. This plugin works well for very small products but it's a nightmare for bigger prints like posters and even high quality calendars. On the Admin, I still cannot export a PDF for all of my products with the needed size. Support says and I quote:


"The developer says that this is simply due to the limitations of the server. With images that are that very large and then scaled up this is simply only possible to a certain limit. It should be better when you use the .jpg format instead of .png. Other then that you can always use an image editing program to scale the output image."

I am very sorry but this is not what I paid for - more than once! The image I attach is a print of what you promise on Code Canyon. You say "fit any product" and "no limitation". Not to being able to print high quality posters (100x70cm or smaller) or calendars without using Photoshop is a huge limitation. If I get 50 orders per day (between books and calenders with at least 8 pages which), I will not be doing anything else than just being in Photoshop the whole day long to adjust exported files and increasing resolution (which will also inevitable kill image quality!), if I even ever catch up!


It is also very poor to provide a solution that is on a server that is not able to export a PDF that is only 1136 per 796mm with 300 DPI. Printin industry has standard paper sizes (https://www.prepressure.com/library/paper-size). How can one work then? How can admin solution work? High quality print needs also PNG quality images! JPG is great for web, PNG is what should be used to print - always!

Hi,

I am actually considering this plugin.

We print large format 320 cm wide machine Fabric.
I have gone through the Feature Requests and found amazing thing you FPD and you guys making here.

I am just wonder if this high-res pdf export will be able to export enough to my printing size 300 cm wide and 10 m - 20 m.


From what I can imagine is:

Once the customer upload their file, the plugin create the thumbnail so we can work with smaller graphic on the canvas.

The background is also represent by thumbnail so it can become lightweight.
Then after all editing is confirmed then it can be saved or sent to admin size.

Actually I am thinking if the export pdf location address can be specified so I can create the folder according to the job from our client and print out right away.

Maybe all these ideas have already been implemented.

I am new.  So if anyone can let me know if my expectation is also part of this feature please let me know.
