I'm attempting to transcribe some scanned documents. The quality of the .pdf files is low. Is there a way to play around with the images in order to help me make out the mangled words? [more inside]

We have a problem with (only some) pdfs and TIFFs displaying and printing incorrectly in Quark 6 running on MAC OS 10.3.9. It's holding up the print run of our magazine! [more inside]

I can't seem to figure out how to make an image that is in .pdf format into the wallpaper on my desktop, OS: XP. I've tried saving it in another format and it doesn't seem to work. Any ideas?

i've got a client that is doing private investiations of insurance fraud cases, and has been writing up reports in MS Word and embedding photos of the casework into those .doc files. the problem is that he needs to email these files to his clients so they can be proofread and modified (i had suggested .PDF files until i realized the clients needed to be able to modify the reports). Unfortunately, these .doc files with images embeded end up roughly 15 MB in size each, and become too large to email. they're not technically astute enough to resize the images to be smaller, however .PDF files nicely package that same 15 MB .doc file into a 250 KB .pdf file. do any of you have any ideas of a common document format that i can recommend to them that will take care of the image size for them?
