Hi Vicki,

As error message says, "The image is too wide to output. Please crop it or reduce resolution and try again" seems this must be causing issue with a specific PDF which has a pdf page with the large content.

I don't think so there would be a workaround to fix that specific page. But we suggest you to read this help article The Image is too wide to output. Please crop it or reduce resolution and try again (Print Production... where similar issue has been addressed and resolved.

Let us know how it goes.

Thanks,

Akanchha

Hey, it's really cool that I have to go to Photoshop and pull in the PDF to export it as PNG or JPEG.

Acrobat says the file is too wide to export to PNG/JPEG, however the PDF exports JUST FINE if done through ANYTHING BUT acrobat

This supposed fix has a link that is broken, resulting in a 404 Not Found error. 

 

As others have stated, it is ridiculous that someone needs ANOTHER program to save as a jpeg, especially when it is offered as an option.

This seems to be yet another way in which Adobe presents the user with limitations rather than empowering us.  Why limit the size of output files?  This is an obstacle to professionals; allow us to work with large files, please.

I had this today. I first cropped it in the obvious response, didn't work. Then I had an inspiration to compress the PDF, and it worked -- I was able to export it.

Open PDF with a graphics program like Gimp, Photoshop, or Illustrator, and re-export (save as) a graphic filetype of choice.

Crop, resize, or reduce filesize will sacrifice resolution.

This shouldn't need to be a workaround for Acrobat, but there's no native solution in Pro DC as of now (10/2021)

Thanks a lot, this works perfect. However, as you correctly said: this shouldn't be required...

I'm getting the same issue, but I don't have a graphics program like photoshop, and the link that's listed as the correct answer shows a 404 error. 

 

Is there a way to identify the actual problem and fix it, or some other way to re-size the document? I'm using Adobe Acrobat pro. Thank you.

Does your error look like this? if so, you could use a preflight profile to re-size your pdf, so it won't exceed the maximum size, (Tools> Print Production> Preflight) or you could try to optimize your pdf to downsample (reduce the resolution) of the images (File> Save as other> Optimized pdf.

The right answer if you're on a Mac is to promply give up with Adobe and open it in Preview where it exports as a JPG, PNG, etc effortlessly.
