How to make a fast loaded PDF file in Photoshop?


I'm making my resume in Photoshop CC. The design style I've used is totally flat, so no shadows, and no other effect. Before saving it, I put the background in transparent to make less space to the final PDF file.

I'm exporting to PDF using File > Automate > PDF > Multi-Page Document > (...) Now, in the Adobe PDF Preset I've used various options, same with Compression and other options... and what I've achieved so far is to make my PDF file with a considerable low size. However that's not my goal here, what I want is the PDF file properly displayed when you open it.

My problem is that when I open the file, it takes a while to open and when you scroll the document, some elements disappear until you stop scrolling, where they show again. It's really annoying.

How can I avoid that?

Thanks in advance.

Accepted Answer

Depending on the position you are aiming at, creating the resumé in Photoshop may disqualify you (for other positions, it may be a plus, of course).

PDF is NOT an image; PDF is a complex document format, and whatever text you have should really not be an image, but, yeah, text. Among the Adobe tools, the tool of choice would be Illustrator (for 1 to 2 pages), or InDesign (for more pages).
