Hi. I'm new, have been using Office 2002 with good success until recently. Too many problems with it now, so I came to LibreOffice. I'm working on a self-pub book(PDF), which is an ongoing project and currently offered to users who need it. It has about 215+ jpg photos, on average about 100-150 kb in size. I spend considerable time on the photos to make them look good at that resolution. I've just completed a major edit and when I print to PDF (using Doro PDF Writer, which I've used for years with Word and Excel) the final 5 images or so near the end of the work are just a space with a vertical line in them. The dimensions are ok, but no image is there.

The .odt Libre document is good. Filesize is about 17Mb and it produces a PDF of approx. 11Mb in size, which can be sent via email. Any help appreciated. image description. Cheers, Don

Try Export As PDF in LO. I find that I get much better output and control, e.g. bookmarks, clickable links, pictures, security, etc. by using File | Export As | Export as PDF... in LO than print to any pdf writer I have.

Great, had wondered how to do that. I have liked Doro because I do have so much control, but this is something I will try for sure. Thx

For emailing and printing from home printers for pictures I normally set 150 dpi and 85% compression which gives, quite frankly, great pictures without noticeable artifacts. For commercial printing where I don't care so much about file size 300 dpi seems plenty, but should be higher if B&W. Cheers, Al

Advice was good, Libre export to PDF is good and it looks like the compression is good for this. My final exported PDF document from the 16,800kb *.odt is 9,250kb and presents a good, clear result.
