ImagePlacer is an Adobe Acrobat plug-in that enables you to:
- Place/import images/photographs onto the PDF page with Scaling and transparency as watermarks or overlays.
ImagePlacer is a very
powerful publishing tool which allows you to
stamp a graphical image onto specified pages
within a PDF document. The graphic can be
stamped as an overlay, or as a watermark.
Overlays appear in the foreground of the
appropriate page. Watermarks appear in the
background of the appropriate page behind
any existing text. Images stamped as an
overlay can also be transparent. This means
that the text beneath the graphic can still
You can save a named configuration and reuse it again and again, either with ImagePlacer itself, or with Mapsoft's unique automation tool, Automator,. Automator allows you to use your saved ImagePlacer configurations to stamp your chosen graphic onto multiple files in one operation. (Automator can be purchased from the Mapsoft's online store .) Automator also allows you to use ImagePlacer in combination with other Mapsoft publishing tools to create a sequence of actions that can be applied to single or multiple documents. Each tool can be added to this sequence more than once, and each time it is used it can have different settings. A full list of all available Mapsoft publishing tools can also be found there.
You should be aware that once an imported graphic has been stamped into a file, that graphic will be permanently embedded within that file once that file is saved. Prior to saving a file you have the option to use Acrobat's standard File > Revert facility to revert to the last saved version of that file. However, once you have saved a file that has been stamped with a graphic using ImagePlacer, you will NOT be able to subsequently remove any of these graphics from that file.
