need help saving files a certain way
I am creating invitations and various other things using GIMP, however the printer that I send my stuff to wants the images sent in High Resolution pdf.. From what I understand this is 300dpi.?

My question is how do I save the file that I am working on to be a high resolution pdf?

RE: need help saving files a certain way
In Windows, your best bet is to find a "PDF printer" and print to it. A "PDF printer" is a dummy printer driver that doesn't send things to the printer but instead creates the PDF equivalent.

I don(t know what "High Resolution PDF" is. PDF is mostly a "vector" format, a pure text/line drawing PDF has the resolution of the printer. It is possible that what your printshop means is PDF with high resolution pictures, in which case 300DPI could be a guess but they my want more.
