How to preserve a background color, when generating a PDF file

Apr 2, 2012 8:17 AM

I am trying to create a PDF file from some application. Please note that the picture in this application has the black background. So I invoke a Print command and set a printer as "Adobe PDF". As a result, I have generated


a brilliant PDF file of my picture, but on the WHITE background. When selecting the Adobe PDF printer, I have looked through all its settings ( in the Adobe PDF settings, I have found several tabs: General, Images, Fonts, Color, Advanced, PDF/X), none of them generated the original background color.


So how can a generate a PDF file, having the original background color (black, in my case) ?

    When you print to paper did you get the black background?

    Looks like that the application doesn't send the background to the printer.

    You can't define a background in the Adobe PDF printer.
