Do you want to insert a picture into your PDF? Follow this guide to learn the easiest way to add images to your PDFs.
Adding images to PDFs is one of the main reasons that people use PDF documents.
In fact, being able to send images that other people could receive and see on their own computers is one of the reasons why PDFs were invented in the first place.
This guide will show you everything you need to know about adding images, copy and pasting them, and more!
What you’ll learn:
Adding images is part of what makes PDFs so useful. But without the right tools or software, you won’t be able to do it. Fortunately, there are simple ways to add images to PDFs.
If you’ve tried interacting with images on the computer before, you’ve probably seen one of two different types of images: PNG, or JPG (sometimes called JPEG).
Both are image file types, but they have a few differences. And these differences may be important to keep in mind when adding them to your PDF, depending on your needs and use of the PDF.
PNG images are a “lossless compression'' type of image file. Meaning that these images can be compressed into a smaller size, without losing the quality of the image. This makes it very versatile, and crucial to use when image quality is of importance.
JPG or JPEG, is one of the most popular image types on the internet.
JPG is a “lossy compression” type of image file, so compressing the file to a smaller size will mean that the image quality will suffer. However JPGs are still very useful when image quality is less important than the size of the image.
PNG allows for lossless compression & transparent backgrounds, whereas JPG allows for variable compression and tends to be smaller file sizes.
