How to insert image to PDF

There are many questions on forums asked about how to insert image to PDF file. I think most people have this problem when they want to add image to a PDF which is existing or lack of source document. As PDF is an end format, its non-editable feature serves for that. It means you can’t easily or directly edit it.

Before talking about this problem, I would say that it’s common for you to make a PDF file from multiple documents including images. You can either insert picture into PDF document as a separate page or embed it on desired place within the file. Just compose them in any editable files such as word, image, spreadsheet, PowerPoint slides, etc and use a handy PDF Creator to create a new file.

If you don’t have one, get a PDF Creator here.

Then if you are the author who wants to create a PDF file contains expected images or have the source file, it is effortlessly to cover pictures you want into a PDF file.

Then it seems more difficult to insert image into PDF files for people who are not the author of files and of course no original file is available.

Some of you will copy and paste PDF page into Ms Word then add image into word document then save as a PDF file. I don’t recommend this method to add image to a PDF, since you may lose layout and normally graphics, charts, tables, etc can’t be extracted. Besides, if the file has multiple pages, it’s cumbersome to go and you will find yourself in trouble again to merge them after creation.

Don’t be frustrated. As long as you have a PDF Editor, add picture to an existing PDF document will be a piece of cake.

It allows you to insert image to PDF file at any area you intended and even insert a PDF image before or after certain page.

    You don’t need to use a pdf editor to insert an image into a pdf doc, but you do need Acrobat Pro.
