I have created a fillable pdf form in Adobe Acrobat DC and I want to add an option to let the user insert a picture (in a specific box) that he or she has on his computer or iPad but they only have a reader (not Acrobat) - can I insert a fillable option for them to drop in their image.
Yes, but for it to work on the iPad the user will have to open the form in Readdle's PDF Expert app, which is not free like Adobe Reader.
When the button is clicked, it will prompt the user to select a file that contains the image, then the image will then be placed as the button's icon.
Acrobat DC had an update that included a new type of field (Image field), the is automatically set up as I described above. Note that Reader (Windows/Mac) can import from PDF, JPEG, TIFF, GIF and BMP. Acrobat can import from anything it is able to convert to PDF, including other image formats.
Thank you soooo much George.....I feel like a real idiot not realising what that image form field was for....and it worked perfectly!
My user is using the form in PDF Expert on iPad so all good
Thank you also for the very fast reply.
I finally got my form data to save, and image to upload, but now can't get the user input data to print; only the form itself. I checked the security settings and printing is allowed...what else should I check?
It seems like you cannot use Acrobat Reader DC to insert an image? Did anyone have an issue with this? it works fine with Acrobat DC Pro, but not Reader.
It will work with Acrobat Reader DC on Windows or Mac.
The issue is it can only insert images if it is converted to PDF first, it is not finding any other image formats.
Does you use a old version?
I am on the most recent version 15.006.30482
That's far from being the latest version, which at the moment is 19.010.20098.
I just downloaded it yesterday, and ran the updates. I will try updating again to see the this solves the problem. Thank you!
What version of Windows do you have?
Is this Acrobat Reader 2015?
Is this the radio button? There's no layout for "label only". How do I do this? Thanks.
I have created a form allowing for folks to insert a photo. All is working well except when the user is using a "browser" version of adobe. I may be using the wrong term, but in Microsoft one drive when you open a PDF it asked to open in the "browser" when utilizing this option there are issues with filling out the form. Most are inconsistent, but the one constant is the ability to insert a photo. Can anyone help with this issue.
sorry, type. The one constant is the "inability" to insert photos.
