Placing Images into PDF Files

Mapsoft ImagePlacer plugin for Adobe® Acrobat®

ImagePlacer is an Adobe® Acrobat® plug-in that enables you to:

  • Place/import images/photographs onto the PDF page with Scaling and transparency as watermarks or overlays.

ImagePlacer is a very powerful publishing tool which allows you to stamp a graphical image onto specified pages within a PDF document. The graphic can be stamped as an overlay, or as a watermark. Overlays appear in the foreground of the appropriate page. Watermarks appear in the background of the appropriate page behind any existing text. Images stamped as an overlay can also be transparent. This means that the text beneath the graphic can still be seen/read.

ImagePlacer plug-in for Adobe® Acrobat® main window

You should be aware that once an imported graphic has been stamped into a file, that graphic will be permanently embedded within that file once that file is saved. Prior to saving a file you have the option to use Acrobat's standard File > Revert facility to revert to the last saved version of that file. However, once you have saved a file that has been stamped with a graphic using ImagePlacer, you will NOT be able to subsequently remove any of these graphics from that file.

A tryout version of the product is available.
