Bridge 8 and Bridge 9 - PDF module broken, destroys colors, horror skin tones

The pdf export modules of both Bridge 8 and Bridge 9 are broken and unusable as they cannot read a color tag.

I have tried repeatedly - both applications cannot read color tags and it looks like it's seen in a Firefox browser. All skin tones destroyed.

I have searched online - the problem exists since September 2018.

Has there been a solution to this problem in the six months since it was discovered?

Is there a way to make the pdf module to do the most basic thing in the image world (and without which its all pointless): to read a color tag?

I can't believe that after 25 years adobe brings out a module that can't read a color tag. I can't send this junk pdf to a client, nor to my own rep.

Why did you post this on the Photoshop Forum if it concerns Bridge?

Photoshop’s Contact Sheet II seems to work fine.

This is a known issue and we are waiting on a fix from Adobe.

Are you on PC, Lumigraphics? I'm on a Mac, and the pdf module can't produce a single usable pdf.

Why is nothing happening? Bridge 9 is basically unusable. No control over the interface compared to Bridge 8, blurry previews, and a dysfunctional pdf output module. Deleting Bridge 9. Bridge 8 at least works except you can't create pdfs.

I have tested on three different Windows PCs and two different Macs. This problem has been reported here NUMEROUS times, scroll down through the threads. I cannot repro it on any computer but apparently others can.

I have the same problem. Mac pro 10.12.6 Bridge 2019
They come out much darker and magenta red. These are some proofs I am trying to send to a client.

Consider using the Contact Sheet Function in Photoshop or Grid Place in InDesign.

Thanks, I will check that out. I can create the pages in Photoshop and then bundle them together to a pdf this way.

Thanks, c.pfaffenbichler, that's a good alternative until the problem with the otherwise very practical pdf module is fixed.

I tried the "create pdf presentation"

What it does is that it shrinks my 2000 pixel high document to 480 pixels without me having given it any command to do so. It seems to be impossible to create a pdf with the original size of the document.

Also, the file size is huge. 2,8 mb was the smallest for stamp sized 480 pixel high pdf.

High quality. I couldn't find settings that adjusted the size, so I don't know why it's getting shrunk so much.

Did you try Lightroom Classic, specifically the Print module?
