Topic: Problem printing embedded GIFs

I have created numerous PDFs from WordPerfect documents using the Acrobat Distiller printer driver that ships with Acrobat 5.0. These documents contain GIF images.

Using Acrobat 5.0, these images display and print perfectly. Using Acrobat 6.0, however, the images will not print correctly (although they display fine). Basically, the images are extremely light (if they can be seen at all), as if they were rubbed out by a pencil's eraser.

The same printer drivers (HP LaserJet 3200m print and print-to-fax) are being used in both cases, so I do not believe they are the culprits. (Also, the problem manifests itself using the native Windows print-to-fax driver.) All machines are running Windows XP Pro.

Any suggestions or other advice? Thank you in advance.

Adding a PDF Stamp Comment

OK, so you want to stamp your document. Maybe you need to give reviewers some advice about the document's status or sensitivity. This tip from author Ted Padova demonstrates how to add stamps with the Stamp Tool along with related comments.
