Acrobat 7.0 Professional: Editing Images using the TouchUp Object tool

You use the TouchUp Object tool to make last-minute corrections to images and objects in an Adobe PDF document. For major revisions, use your original authoring application, and then regenerate the PDF document.

You can use the TouchUp Object tool context menu to perform some editing tasks on images without starting an external editing application. To open the context menu, right-click (Windows) or Control-click (Mac OS) the text using the TouchUp Object tool. Using the TouchUp Object tool can change how a document reflows and can affect accessibility. For example, changing the location of an object affects the order in which that object (or its alternate text) is read by a screen reader.

To edit an image or object with the TouchUp Object tool:

Choose Tools > Advanced Editing > TouchUp Object Tool, or select the TouchUp Object tool on the Advanced Editing toolbar.

Right-click (Windows) or Control-click (Mac OS) the image or object, and then choose a command.

  • Delete Clip deletes objects that are clipping the selected object. For example, if you scale text and the resulting characters are clipped, selecting this option shows you the complete characters.

  • Create Artifact removes the object from the reading order so it isn't read by a screen reader or the Read Out Loud command.

  • Edit Image, which appears when a bitmap image is selected, opens Adobe Photoshop, for example.

  • Edit Object, which appears when a vector object is selected, opens Adobe Illustrator, for example.

  • Properties allows you to edit properties for the content, tag, and text, such as adding alternate text to an image to make it accessible.
