From time to time, you may want to add a background image to your PDF file, such as a company logo. However, it can be tricky to do so without the use of a PDF editor. If you want to change the default background color on your PDF document, you can easily add PDF background files with PDFelement.

3 Steps to Add PDF Background Color and Image

To get started, download PDFelement and install it on your computer. After you have followed the steps of the installation wizard, launch PDFelement to begin the process of adding a PDF background image or color.

Step 1. Open PDF File

Click on the "Open File" button located on the bottom left corner of the screen. The file finder window will then pop up. tYou can alternatively right-click on the PDF file on your computer and select "Open with" and choose PDFelement.

Step 2. Add Background into PDF

On the "Edit" tab, click on "Background". Next, click on "New Background". The Add Background dialog box will pop up. To add an image file from your computer as the watermark background, click on "File" and then "Browse" to choose the desired image. Alternatively, you can choose a color for a solid background.

Step 3. Save the Document

You can customize the look of the image by adjusting the rotation degree and opacity level. You can also scale the image to the size of the page if you'd like (though this might distort the pixilation of the image). Finally, choose whether you want to apply the image universally or to specific pages.
