How can in influence the size of an image when exported to pdf?

No matter what I do the images on my Confluence pages are reduced in size when I export the to PDF. The size attribute seems to affect the way the image appears on the page, but when I export to PDF there is an annoying reduction in image size.

Is there a way (macro or otherwise) of gaining some control over the image size when exporting to PDF?

Hi Scott,

I just stumbled onto the same problem. I've got a quite big image in a table and PDF export always shrinks the image although there's enough space.
The printed page than has got a big right margin that could have been used by the image, but isn't.

Isn't there anybody out there who can help? @Steffen Heller, perhaps?


I have a similar problem.  I have two images in different cells of the table (same column).  All is fine on the screen where i have the following images:

Empty box image (like a checkbox):  checkbox.png

Signature box (in last row of table only: box.png


Everything appears fine on the page, but when exported to PDF, the squares seen above are enlarged to the width of the rectangles.   Something is wrong here.
