Photo scanned as pdf.

I have been emailed an old photo, originally postcard size, scanned as a pdf. When I try to print it, the size in the preview just about fills the A4 size.

Is there a way I can change the size I print to something smaller, to say 8 by 6 inches?

Any advice much appreciated - this is for a retirement presentation this week!

Check the printers Preferences before printing, most have the ability to choose to print at Postcard Size or at any size you want.

This works for me, maybe not for your hardware, but here goes -

Open the PDF in Acrobat reader.
Select Print
In Printer Properties select Advanced
Select Effects.

Now there should be a choice to select % size.
For me there is a slider defaulted to 100% which will go much larger but also down to 25% of the original.
