I am currently working on an, Interactive PDF, and the customer wants to be able to, attach their own pictures inside the PDF..... but i haven't really found a solution for it!*

Can someone that has some knowledge, of Indesign/Interactive PDF, maybe try explaining me, how its done ;)

Thank you :)

I'd assume that if the customer is wanting to add their own pictures then the issue they'll have s that they don't currently have access to InDesign or Acrobat Pro?

As I see it, you have 2 options:
1. Suggest they buy a Creative Cloud single app license for £21 per month and download Acrobat Pro DC?
2. They could pay you the £21 per month to do it for them.

Use Acrobat Pro to add an image field
I've got Acrobat Pro but I don't seem to have an add 'image' field. Did you add a button and set the properties to run a javascript which allowed the addition of attaching images inside the PDF? If so, where did you get the javascript from?

Brief instructions to speed things along for you:

- Open up the Content Panel via Tools > Content Panel
- Using the 'Add a button' tool draw a button to the size the image field needs to be
- Double click the button to enter into the button's properties
- Go to the Actions tab
- Next to Select Action choose 'Run a JavaScript'
- Click Add
- Copy & Paste the following JavaScript in the window:

event.target.buttonImportIcon();

- OK
- Go to the Options tab
- Under Layout choose 'Icon Only'
- Investigate any other options you need then..
- Close
