When most people think of PDFs, their first thought might be those hard-to-work with files that I can’t write on or some form you have too full out. While you will encounter forms in the form of a PDF, that is not their only use. PDFs do not have to be bland or boring and can even have many images and pictures. That is because PDFs are in fact images. As an image file, it makes them very easy and malleable when it comes to editing and changing. One of the neat things we can do with a PDF is you can actually merge it with other PDFs or even other image files such as a jpeg. Although it is an easy thing to do, you will need some things in order to do it. The main thing I will need is a PDF editor.
The only way to work with PDFs is through a PDF editor. They can come in online or offline versions, but to edit or do anything with PDFs, you will certainly need a PDF editor. PDF editors come with many tools that can help you edit and manage your PDF. While editing is their primary purpose, with a PDF editor, you can also merge PDFs, split PDFs, compress them, scan them, leave comments, and a multitude of other things that are not possible with traditional documentation types such as a Microsoft Word document. One of the aforementioned tools, the merge PDF tool, can be used to merge two or more PDFs together, but what many people do not know is that this can also be done with a simple jpeg file. You might want to do this for a few reasons, such as if there is a picture you want as a cover for your PDF or maybe a company logo you would like added to a PDF presentation. Being able to do this will open a lot of doors, but how exactly do you merge a PDF with a jpeg?
What to Know Before You Start
Before you start, there are a few things to know. Firstly, make sure the image file you want to merge is in the right form. Some files might be saved under a different file type. Do not worry though if it is not, it is a simple matter of saving it as a jpeg and you are good to go. Aside from this, before you merge your PDF with the jpeg, plan what you will do with it. Do you plan on just merging it and leaving it there, or does it need to go to some particular place? What size should it be? These are just some things to think about before you merge your documents together.
