Topic in Brief:
Add Image to PDF

PDF or Portable Document Format is the standard for all types of documents all over the digital world. Every time someone says that he or she is sending you an important document, you can bet on the fact that it will be in the PDF format- unless the sender does not really consider it as important! PDF files give you a range of advantages that other file formats do not- including security, better formatting, digitally signing documents and a lot more.

With all these advantages, there is a certain limitation to using PDF files as well. Editing or modifying a PDF file is not as easy as a word file. And when it comes to adding or editing images, charts or any graphical content in the PDF document, the challenge is only greater. However- you do not need to worry about that. As you read ahead, you will come across some of the best methods that you can use for inserting images in PDF documents.
