2021-11-29 13:55:43 • Filed to: How-To • Proven solutions

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 with PDFelement.

3 Steps to Add PDF Background Color and Image

Begin with downloading PDFelement and installing it on your computer. After completing the steps of the installation wizard, launch PDFelement to start the process of adding PDF background images or colors.

Step 1. Open PDF File

Click on the "Open File" button located on the first of the screen. The file finder window will then pop up. You 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 "Add Background". The "Add Background" window will pop up. If you want to add an image file in your computer as a watermark background, please click the "+" icon and select the desired background type, and then browse to select the desired image or file. 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 pixelation of the image). Finally, choose whether you want to apply the image universally or to specific pages.
