    Help for rasterize a multipage pdf document.

    Sometime I need to rasterize a multipage document and send it as PDF, the main reason to rasterize is to avoid giving vector logos or compositions to some specific client.

    I work with InDesign CS6 and export in PDF my documents and I was having hard time to rasterize all the pages at the same time and exporting to pdf, I tried all the options with the flattener preview (also adding transparent object on top) but does not works as I need.

    I came from CorelDraw where with click you could select all and rasterize it (with option for resolution) and export to pdf all inside CorelDraw, but I can't replicate it inside InDesign or Acrobat.

    To be clear I don't want convert it to Jpeg because it is a multipage and I still want to deliver a pdf document.

    Any idea for a fast workflow for this kind of situation?
    Thanks for your suggestions.

    Sharklase thanks for your answer, but those files needs to be printed too, protecting it is not what I need :(

    Edit: Rasterize is a must for me, I need it for many reason.

    Xenio:
    if you put the foresaid settings in, you can print!
    it will allow printing... it only restricts taking the pdf apart

    rasterize and combine

    The best way I've found is to rasterize the PDF out of indesign - it does a much better job handling multiple transparencies and othe effects, as well as complex linework.

    1. place pdf in indesign - same page size as pdf
    2. export to jpeg - into a folder to keep the separate jpegs together
    3. Open Acrobat, and under File>Create>Combine files into a single PDF . . .
    4. From the folder, drag all of your jpegs and hit the combine button

    and then you have a single, rasterized PDF

    Thanks T0rnad0, I kind of like this, a lot of control of all the steps with resolution, jpeg compression and color workspace.
    Thanks.

    Any other ideas are welcome.
