Inserting an image into a pdf

Have you ever printed an article to pdf from the web to find that, when you open it, the graphs or images haven't been included? Instead there is just blank space where you images should have been? I have been caught many times by this, and have usually saved the images separately, then have slotted them into the pdf as separate pages (using right-click copy on the web image, then insert from clipboard within Acrobat).

However, there is a tidier fix. You can, using Adobe Acrobat, simply insert them into those blank spaces. All you need to do is:
  • Open our pdf in Adobe Acrobat to the right page
  • Go to Tools | Advanced Editing | Touchup Object Tool.
  • Right-click at the spot we want the image to start at, choose "Place Image" from the pop-up menu
  • A standard insert file dialogue will appear. Navigate to the image we want to insert. Select an image file and click Open.

That's all there is to it!
