I don't have much experience with images in tables, but I strongly
recommend the Scroll PDF Exporter plugin for Confluence if you must deliver
PDF from Confluence. https://www.k15t.com/software/scroll-pdf-exporter Saved
my sanity (until I finally got away from delivering PDF).

There are still oddities in tables, but much more manageable than
Confluence native PDF.
