  2. Click on the page where you would like to place the image
  3. To finish press Esc or click elsewhere on the document


Once you have completed adding all the image content you need to the page, use the Edit PDF Content tools to modify it further if needed. 


Image Content Properties

To access the Image Content properties right click (Mac: Ctrl + Click) on the toolbar button and click Default Tool Properties. The following default settings can be applied to image Content.


Transparency - Sets the transparency of the text annotation

Compression: Convert any image to either a JPEG, JPEG2000, FLATE, or JBIG2.

  • JPEG - lossy compression that will reduce image quality and size
  • JPEG2000 - less lossy compression that will reduce size and some quality
  • FLATE - Lossless compression does not reduce quality but may not always reduce file size
  • JBIG2 - Lossless compression that can only support black and white color space. Color images will be converted to black and white. Best for scanned documents with no images
