SAVING IN PHOTOSHOP INTO A PDF.  CURIOUS WHY THE SELECTIONS ARE SET TO THE LOWEST POSSIBLE AND DOWNSIZE ??? WORKING FOR MONTHS AND NEVER NOTICED MY HD WORK WAS BEING REDUCED.  AND WHEN OPENING A FILE IT GIVES THE OPTION OF A LOW RESOLUTION WITH 72 PX ??? WHY NOT JUST OPEN IN THE ORIGINAL RESOLUTION ??? OR THE HIGHEST POSSIBLE ??? WHO WANTS TO WORK ON A LOW RESOLUTION PICTURE ??? IF THEY DO.... THEN THEY CAN FIGURE OUT HOW TO DOWNSIZE AND REDUCE THEIR WORK.

THIS HAS BEEN A PROBLEM WITH BEGINNERS NOT KNOWING THEY HAVE TO CHANGE ALL THE SETTINGS BEFORE THEY SAVE THEIR WORK.  AFTER MONTHS OF MADNESS AND WONDERING WHY MY WORK KEPT LOOKING PIXELATED.... I FINALLY FIGURED IT OUT.  NOW I HAVE TO START OVER :( VERY UPSET

I'm pretty sure that the settings in the PDF saving dialog box are "sticky". That is, they are set where the user last had them set. I see plenty of options for high quality PDFs available. Also, I wouldn't recommend working on a PDF...it is more of an export/publishing format is it not? You should work on the original PSD file.
