I was creating a book using Adobe Indesign 17.4 with 358 pages with many color photos and images.  While preparing a "dummy" for printer I saved the file by creating a PDF using print function Microsoft to PDF.  in one of the frames 50% of photo was replicated into a frame where it did not belong on page 291.  I checked the InDesign file and everything looked good.  No photo was embeded and I checked the folders for the chapter and the errant photo was not in the folder from which the image should have been drawn from (ruled out that error.  So the "errant photo" was properly located in its folder and properly visible in its assigned frame; but somehow was duplicated in the lower half of a later chapter's frame.  Printer can replace photo on PDF using Adobe Professional, but some glitch caused this.  Interestingly, this error is not generated when I select only page 291.temp page.jpg  Since I have completed the book and the printer can fix, I am just reporting this bug.  I am curious if anyone knows what caused it.  CJK

No. Don't ever make a PDF from InDesign that way. Don't even use Adobe PDF printer. InDesign is not designed to be used that way. Use Export PDF from InDesign. (I'm not sure why you describe this as a bug in Acrobat Reader. Surely it's equally likely to be a problem with making the PDF).

Hey, I'm a newbie and successfully self-published two books this way. I
knew no other way to describe the issue I was having.

I had many issues with InDesign, having never used it before, but I worked
through all of them except this--until now.

Thank you. Exporting to PDF eliminated the problem of the half photo being
imposed over another photo. It also cured two other issues: It added a
page which was missing immediately after the cover page making page 3 page
2. The printer had already corrected this for me. It also gives the blue
the desired shade of blue showing in InDesign. Now that I know never take
the shortcut I took and use Export instead.
I'm good.

From all Adobe Applications never use print to PDF. Export PDF.

From other applications never use the inherited PDF producing procedure like Print to MS PDF, or Quartz, save as PDF on the Mac. Use the Adobe way.
