  • For the PDF file type, we do not have a exact number for the maximum image size, as PDF tries to accommodate the bigger image size by reducing the size of the text/other content given along with the image.
    After 1200px there doesn't to be any difference with the image size, except for the text size which that includes on the template will keeps reducing.
    As we cannot control how the size of the image is handled in the PDF, giving an exact number is not possible.
    The recommended maximum size to maintain for an image in Document Generation Template is within 800*1200px or 1200*1200px for PDF file type.
