A colleague sends you an image attachment along with a PDF that simply says: "Please insert picture into PDF". Now, you're in a panic because you're worried about how to insert a picture into PDF documents, how to do it without affecting the layout of the document, and other issues you might face. Don't worry, this article shows you clear steps to insert a picture into a PDF file using Wondershare PDFelement - PDF Editor, a powerful PDF editor with a friendly user interface.
The first method uses the Add Image function in PDFelement to insert a picture into PDF. It's a simple, three-step process that will take you less than a minute to execute. Let's look at the process in detail:
After you download and install the software on your PC, click the "Open File" button on the Home page to import the document into the program.
Click and go to the "Edit" tab, under which you'll see an image icon for "Add Image". The tooltip when you mouseover the icon will say, "Insert picture to the document".
Choose the image you want to insert into the PDF file and hit the "Open" button. This will insert the image into your file. You can then position it where you want and resize it to fit the content.
Note: Don't worry about the layout being affected because PDFelement will automatically adjust the layout to make the image fit into the chosen position without making the surrounding content look odd or funny.
The second method uses a slightly different approach for the "Insert picture into PDF" action. This is also done from within the document. The process is as follows:
With the document open, click on the "Edit" tab and then click the "Edit" icon in the right of the ribbon toolbar.
Next, choose where you want the image to go and right-click once you've made your area selection. Choose "Add Image" in the contextual menu.
Finally, choose the image in Explorer and click "Open" to insert the picture into the PDF selected area.
Both these methods allow you to conveniently insert a picture into PDF documents wherever you want it to go. You can also watch this video to get the detailed steps.
