If I need to print words, there is no problem at all. But when I need to print pictures, the results is mass, it looks like a mud on the paper. Anyone experienced such problem before?

Will update solve the problem?

I had a similar problem in college. It wouldn't plot the pictures on my PDF. I ended up using another program to create the PDFs and it printed after that. Weird problem though....

Try flattening the PDF then printing it.

Try to print it in reader, instead of writer. it solves the problem.

Try to make sure your file is all in the same color system--

Illustrator and InDesign use CMYK by default. Howeverr, they will not automatically change RGB pictures to CMYK.

When it goes to print, the printing program will think you are printing a CMYK file though your images are still referenced and attached as RGB. This generally creates all sorts of errors and color mismatches.

Try converting either your image files or you indesign/illustrator files to make sure they are all either RGB or CMYK.

Another issue is to check the resolution of your original image files.

Sometimes larger images (either DPI or dimensional size) can be ridiculously high. When these go to print, Adobe will send these pictures to the printer at their relatively printing resolution.

That can mean for scanned images... your file may print at 300 dpi while the embedded images will print at 4000 dpi. Since most injket printers can't handle anything over 600 dpi, it'll just print a puddle of ink.

Hi nypencil, When you have the print dialogue up, go to advanced, and check print as image. Should solve the problem.

Depends on your printer driver, me thinks.

Sorry, I haven't met such trouble, is the probelms with your printing machine? if not, what i can think is to convert the pictures to word directly, thus maybe a little compelx, but it is a way indid.

Is there anything wrong with your pdf printer.How about change for another one .Or as Distant said,sometimes larger images (either DPI or dimensional size) can be ridiculously high. When these go to print, Adobe will send these pictures to the printer at their relatively printing resolution.Here is pdf print tutorail, hope it is helpful.

I do this almost daily. I use a PDF printer driver called Raster edge . Install it and it becomes a selectable printer option. Now you can create PDFs in any program at all, including Adobe Acrobat reader! Just open a PDF, select print, and specify the page range you want to print and select the Raster edge  printer driver.

Hi, Rethor.

How about YG's image printing SDK?

I am testing about the related projects these days. Do you have any ideas about it? Or any good suggestion? Thanks in advance.

 

Best regards,
Arron
