Hey, do you use Picasa from google as a photo manager? I tried that and it works. So first compress the photo image by 1200 something pixels and then convert it to PDF. I don't have much time otherwise I could have sent you screenshots of how I did it. Try compressing the file and let me know how it turns out. All the best.
