Images are not vectors. But you can get their coordinates if you write a C++ plugin for Acrobat Pro.

You could also use a tool like PDFCanOpener to discover what type of things are on the page and also get the coordinates of those things.

These are either images or they are vectors. They CANNOT be both. You also mark text. This is not image, nor vector. Text is a different kind of thing. The PDFEdit calls in a C++ plug-in can be used to get all the data including

- graphics transformation matrixes (which define position and scale)

- starting position for text run, and characters included

- bezier curves for vectors

You would iterate through all the graphical objects on a page. You see ALL the objects on the page, so you have to write code to pick out the relevant objects, and get their properties. This is not a task for a beginner with C++, or a beginner with the API, or the a beginner with computer graphics. I recommend reading the "text" and "graphics" chapters from the PDF Reference; these few hundred pages of documentation are really necessary preparation for working with the PDFEdit API.
