There are many solutions to distortion-oriented printing troubles. Adobe presents a fairly simple solution. It's called "Print as Image" function. Need more explanation, right? Let me put it this way: For instance, if you find a particular PDF printed with distortions (e.g. fonts gone out of proportion, lines intertwined), you can make Adobe® Acrobat® put the actual PDF aside and instead, take a simple image from the whole file, which will be used for printing in the final stage. Take it into account that it might take longer than usual printing because obviously Adobe needs more RAM to finalize the process. Now let's learn how to print PDF as image using Adobe Acrobat.

Steps for Printing PDF as an Image in Adobe® Acrobat®

  • Launch Adobe Reader. Open your PDF. Go to "File". Click on "Print" or use this shortcut "Ctrl+P".
  • On the new screen, you see a few options. From a conservative perspective, everything is as simple and straightforward as it can get. Click on "Advanced", right at the top next to "Properties" (keep in mind that you might have to look for it somewhere else, considering your incumbent version of Adobe).
  • Now, on the new screen, you have the following options: PostScript Options and Color Management.
  • Right under Color Management, check "Print as Image". Remember that, if you check it, then you are going to lose Color Management features.
  • Finally, hit "OK" and apply further adjustments to the document, in case you need any, and hit "Print".
