Psd to pdf text feature

Post by architektura » 2016-10-03T05:20:07-07:00

As You can see if You convert psd to pdf
layer name on pdf document is a live text which I can mark and copy
/this is just text - no image/

1. is any method to make such live [copy ready] text in pdf by hand?
2. what make psd layer name copy'able?

best regards

When IM creates a PDF output, it contains only pixels, not editable (or copyable) text.

Your file edit.png is a PNG not a PSD file? Did I download it incorrectly?

In order to help, perhaps you should provide your PSD file, not a png copy.

I do not think IM can create the PDF with "live" text. Though I am not sure what you mean.

IM will not be able to copy layer names to PSD, as far as I know.

Imagemagick is a raster processor. It will only copy pixel data to PDF.
