Importing Image as Stamp

Images can be imported directly as a stamp without having to create and save the stamp. Any of the any of the supported image formats (*png, *jpg, *jpeg, *jpe, *gif, *tif & *tiff.) can be used.

Note: When importing an image directly as a stamp the image will be converted to a JPEG and inserted as is.


There are multiple ways to import an image as a stamp

  1. Using the Image Tool - click on the Image button
  2. Select Comments > Multimedia > Image from the menu, or the shortcut key Ctrl + Shift + I (Command + Shift + I on Mac)
  3. Select Images > Import Image as Stamp from the menu. Then select the image you wish to use.

Once an image stamp has been applied to a page, it is possible to flatten it so the image is painted directly into the content of the PDF document itself instead of being an annotation sitting on top of it.

To create an image stamp that can be reused instead of an "on-the-fly" stamp, create a custom image stamp.
