Using Acrobat 11 Pro on a Windows 7 platform, I've added a background image to the page.  Using Tools>Content Editing>Edit Text & Images, I dragged the margins of the background as far as possible to the edges of the page.  However, there is still white space around the background image on the printed page.  How can I get the background image to fill the page completely?

One thing to remember is that Acrobat is not a word processing or document layout program, rather it is a document display program.  With that said, do you have access to the source file?

Other than that, the issue is most likely with your printer, not Acrobat.  

Does your printer support border-less printing?  Most printer cartridges are not designed to print over certain margin areas.  If your printer does support border-less printing, the Margins section of the dialog box (Print > Settings) will be editable.  Try changing each margin setting to “0”.

Thank you.  The "Borderless photo printing" setting fixed this issue.
