    Default Photos printing scrambled

    I am using ACAD Architecture 2011 and I have some photos referenced into paper space of a file. I'm trying to print them to our new printer which is an HP 7000. For some reason every time I print it, at least one of the 4 photos comes out completely scrambled. I'm not sure if this is a printer issue or an ACAD issue. I've had no other issues printing from CAD to this printer. Any thoughts or suggestions on solutions?

    Can you print to any other printer without problems? If so, it would be a problem with the print driver. You may be sending too much information that the print driver cannot handle.
    If you have a technical question, please find the appropriate forum and ask it there.
    You will get a quicker response from your fellow AUGI members than if you sent it to me via a PM or email.

    another path to look at in addition to drivers, is the format of the photo(s). Presumably you are inserting a .jpg file - normally a good choice for photographic data, not always a good choice for reproduction. and a very poor choice for linework

    You can try converting to .png format, (and also try changing from color to grayscale unless you need color output- which will reduce the amount of data getting sent). If it's an image of linework, a bitonal tiff or png would be preferable.
