How to Create PDF with Transparent Background

Home > PDF Editing Tips > Create PDF with Transparent Background

You just received the final version of a laboriously designed artwork for your company's next product launch. You feel good about the work you've been collaborating with the graphic designer. You asked your designer to save it into a PDF file so that you can show the final design with your boss. He hurriedly made the conversion because he wanted to go home and sent it to you.

When you open the file, you're shocked that the "transparent" bits appear as black objects. So how can you create a PDF transparent background? See this article to find the answer.

Some designers don't realise that there are transparent elements in their design. You can easily fix this yourself with Wondershare PDFelement for Mac (Wondershare PDFelement). The PDF editing solution is filled with tools that will let you edit, merge, convert and manage your PDF documents professionally and easily. Other than working with normal PDF documents, you’ll be able to use it to create a fillable PDF form or complete one that is less dynamic.

Additionally, the software is also able to do several things:

  • Insert notes and customize your own stamps.
  • Strikeout, underline and highlight textual elements.
  • Protect PDF documents with passwords to prevent unauthorized access and changes to your document.
  • Customize you own encrypted digital signature so that you can easily sign PDFs.
  • Extract certain pages from the source document to create a customized PDF document.
  • Merge several source documents or split one PDF document into several files.
  • Add headers and footers into your PDF documents.

Part 2How to Create PDF Transparents Background

Wondershare PDFelement is a great tool to help you remove the unwanted, non-transparent background. Don't worry about the fact that you have never used it - it is really easy to use. Below is the steps that you can easily follow. Remember that there are two ways to go about it depending on the type of desktop computer you are using.

Step 1. Open PDF Document

For Windows: Go to Home window and click "Open File" and browse for your PDF document. You can also create by going to "Home" and clicking on "From File". However, the simplest way is to drag and drop the file to the program home window.

For Mac: You can use the drag and drop feature or click "Open File" on the Home window.

Step 2. Create Transparent Background

For Window: Click on the "Edit" tab, select "Background" and choose "Add New Background" from the drop down menu. Select "Opacity" in the pop up window.

For Mac: Go to "Edit > Background" on the top toolbar and click "Add". Choose "Opacity" under the "Appearance" tab on the right side.

Step 3. Save PDF

For Window: After changing the background, you can now click the "File" tab and select "Save" to save files.

For Mac: Go to the "File" tab, select "Save", and save the file.
