I'm looking for a tool that allows me to delete an image in a PDF file and replace it with a picture in a PDF format. I don't want to merge two PDF files.

Adobe Acrobat Pro XI can remove an image and add an image in JPG, TIFF etc. but it cannot add the content of a PDF file. I tried also Nitro PDF 9. I cannot do that, either. I don't know whether Adobe Acrobat DC can do that or the next version of Nitro PDF.

So, can anyone recommend a free (preferably) tool or paid (preferably trial but I can buy software)? The tool must run of Windows 7.

    What stops you from converting the pdf image to a jpg and do what you described using Adobe Acrobat Pro XI?

    @DimP I guess the fact that a PDF might also include vector elements. Commented Jun 21, 2016 at 20:46
  • Yes, it's about preserving vector elements.

Master PDF Editor can do that. A trial is available for Windows. Price is reasonable at $50 USD. https://code-industry.net/masterpdfeditor Well, it doesn't insert a PDF image directly, but it can copy an image from one PDF into another, including vectors.

  • This is exacly what I was looking for!
