Why does LibreOffice fail to export a large .odt document as a pdf on Mac OS X?

It is a collage of lots of photos. 130 MB in the .doc version I saved it to, it should print as a 11x17". I need it saved as a jpeg or a pdf to take it to a printer. It takes some time, and then a little window pops up that tells me there was an error. No explanation. Help!!!

What kind of error?

Because it is too big for LibreOffice to manage. One thing you could try is increasing the allowable memory size per image object in your LO general settings. Beware that if you have only small amounts of RAM, this will probably cause your system to grind to a halt.
