I frequently find myself receiving PDF documents (often badly scanned/faxed contracts) that require my signature. I want to be able to take these PDFs (again, scanned-as-image) and insert an image into them, and then send them back, rather than the printing-signing-scanning cycle again and again.
I know that many PDF editor tools, from Acrobat to Foxit, can do it, but I feel paying for a full-fledged PDF editor is overkill for this very specific application. There are also free/trial versions, but they tend to add watermarks, which I would like to avoid.
So, can anyone recommend a free (preferably) or cheap (if necessary) GUI application for Windows 7+, easy to use for non-technical users, that can allow me to insert an arbitrary GIF/PNG into a PDF?
What I don't need:
- Tools for adding watermarks - this should be a small (100x100px or so) image in the foreground.
- Tools for editing structured PDF forms. My documents are usually scanned as images.
- Tools for converting a PDF to a PNG to other image and editing it in an image editor. I already know how to do that, and wish to avoid the hassle of extra conversions.
- APIs/libraries/CLI applications.
