Putting photos in IDW

152 Views, 4 Replies

Whenever I out 2 or 3 photos (JPG's) in an IDW and then try to create a PDF, it takes forever??

Any way to more efficiently do this?

Thanks

What size are these photos?  I have created a drawing with over 12 photos that took up almost half of an 11x17 page and it took no more than 15-20 seconds.... They were in jpeg format as well (using the Tools > Insert Object method)

Most photos typically 60K to 400K

Also I was not using Tools / Insert object but rather putting them in as a sketch symbol

Try the way I mentioned above.  It seems to work much easier (for me) and as I mentioned only took 12-15 seconds to fully print to PDF.
