When I print pictures to a PDF document, the resulting PDF doesn't show the complete images, only partial images.  I usually just select the images to print and then select "Adobe PDF" in the printer dialogue box and then select the format, usually nine to a page.   Any ideas?  Just started doing this the past couple of days.  See attached.

Hey Keith!

 

Thank you for reaching out and reporting this issue.

 

Could you please share the following information for further investigation:

1. Acrobat Pro DC version number. To check the version number, you may use the steps suggested here: https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/kb/identify-product-version.html 

2. OS version on the machine

3. You may create PDF from images directly from the Acrobat application. Why exactly you are using print workflow?

 

Thanks,

Meenakshi

You may create PDF from images directly from the Acrobat application. Why exactly you are using print workflow?


I'm not sure how to create a pdf using images from within the application.  The reason I have been using the print to Adobe pdf feature from the Windows folder is I can show 9 pictures on one page and the resulting PDF is not a huge file and the fidelity is really good.  If I use Microsft to PDF the resulting PDF file is huge.

 

I just started having this problem last Tuesday.  Before that, it was working fine.

 

Hope you can help.

We're seeing the same issue with printing to PDF using Adobe Acrobat Standard 2020, with all current updates installed.

 

Adobe Standard 2020 v2020.001.30020

Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i9-9900 CPU @ 3.10GHz 3.10 GHz
Installed RAM 16.0 GB (15.8 GB usable)
System type 64-bit operating system, x64-based processor

Edition Windows 10 Pro
Version 20H2
Installed on ‎1/‎19/‎2021
OS build 19042.867
Experience Windows Feature Experience Pack 120.2212.551.0

 

We can avoid the problem by reducing the image quality to 144dpi in the Print Pictures dialog, but only when printing several images per page. Full page photo prints at 144dpi still have the white bars across the page.

 

Keith, I find it significant that your Windows version says it was installed on 3/18/2021, the same date your print problem began. Could a Windows update have kicked off this problem?
