PDF Export in ArcGIS Pro produces a corrupt file

When exporting an ArcGIS Pro layout containing PNG images (e.g. Logo, Photo or Chart), I cannot open the generated PDF file.


Export works fine without the image. It does also not work when using a TIFF or BMP image. However, it does work using a JPEG file.


When opening the PDF file, the following errors occur:

  • A drawing error occurred.
  • Insufficient data for an image.


The error occurs with different images from different sources. I am using ArcGIS Pro 2.2.4. Unfortunately, I do not have admin rights on this computer to upgrade to 2.3.


My current workaround is using a JPEG image with an acceptable resolution.
