Chapter 2. Acrobat In Depth > Editing Images

Editing Images

Acrobat enables you to edit images with ease, once you designate a program to use. Acrobat launches that program to open the image to be edited. When it is saved, the updated image shows up in your PDF file.

Images are made up of tiny dots, or pixels. When you edit images, you need to use a pixel-based program (such as Adobe Photoshop or Photoshop Elements) that alters the actual pixels by changing their colors. Objects, or vector-based art, on the other hand, are created by drawing actual lines and creating blocks of colors. You have to use a different type of program—a vector-based program, such as Adobe Illustrator—when you edit these objects or vectors. Use Acrobat to launch a program that lets you edit the images. The image-editing program will save the image temporarily and Acrobat will re-import it into a PDF file. Keep in mind that not all graphics or image-editing applications will work with this feature, such as older versions of GraphicConverter and the current version of Gimp.
