    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 :)

    Use Acrobat Pro to add an image field

    Is it only possible, in Acrobat Pro ?

    Or is there, any other versions, you can use that feature in ?

    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.

    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?

    Copy and pasted from another source

    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:;

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

    What version of Acrobat Pro do you have?
  12. hankscorpio

    There's Acrobat DC - which stands for Acrobat Document Cloud.

    Under the cloud subscriptions there are 2 options

    Acrobat Pro DC
    Acrobat Standard DC
