Cannot import photos into Acrobat so here is a different solution

Acrobat does not have any kind of wizard or a good working method to simply import a batch of photos that can create a PDF with normal 8.5 x 11 page sizes!

 

For example, I have a batch of photos downloaded to my desktop from my phone which, by default, saves images at 4080 by 3072 pixels with a default of 96 DPI.

 

One import method involves selecting all of the images and right-clicking on them to "Convert to Adobe PDF" but this yields a page size in excess of 56 x 46 inches for each photo which is totally unacceptable.

 

Another method I tried was to create a "Blank page" PDF and then attempted to drag and drop the photos onto the page but that failed, ostensibly because the photo DPI setting wouldn't allow it to fit on a normal page size.

 

I was (and still am) disappointed Adobe doesn't think about these things. Even so, I managed to devise an alternate method to get the PDF I wanted.

 

I opened Microsoft Word and created a "Blank page" document. I selected all the files and did a simple drag and drop of the whole batch into Word, which automatically made the initial photo fit within the page dimensions of a normal 8.5 x 11 page size and proceeded to create a page for each additional photo in the same fashion. I was then able to save it as a PDF. No fuss, no muss, exactly what I wanted.

 

THAT is what Adobe Acrobat should have been able to do (especially at the prices they charge!) but it can't. Tsk, tsk, Adobe.

Hi there,

 

Thank you for sharing your experience and feedback with us.

 

We understand that the current methods available in Acrobat for importing and converting a batch of photos into a PDF with standard 8.5 x 11 page sizes have been less than satisfactory.

 

Your detailed description of the challenges faced, such as the oversized page dimensions and the issues with fitting photos onto a normal page size, highlights important areas for improvement.

 

It's clear that having an efficient, user-friendly process for this task is crucial, and we apologize for any inconvenience caused. We appreciate your innovative workaround using Microsoft Word to achieve the desired result. Your method of creating a "Blank page" document and dragging and dropping the photos, which Word automatically adjusts to fit the page size, is a valuable tip that could benefit others facing similar issues.

 

Your feedback is extremely valuable, and we will certainly take it into consideration as we look to enhance our product.

 

Thank you for your patience and for providing us with such constructive feedback.

 

~Amal
