Editing images and other objects
In Acrobat Pro, you can use the Edit Object tool to make last-minute corrections to
images and objects in an Adobe PDF document. For major revisions, use your origi-
nal authoring application, and then regenerate the PDF document.
You can use the Edit Object tool context menu to perform some editing tasks on
images without starting an external editing application. To open the context menu,
right-click (Windows) or Control-click (Mac OS) the text using the TouchUp Object
tool. Using the TouchUp Object tool, you can change how a document reows and
can aect accessibility. For example, changing the location of an object aects the
order in which that object (or its alternate text) is read by a screen reader.
To edit an image or object with the Edit Object tool, select Edit Object in the
Content panel. Then select an object, and right-click (Windows) or Control-click
(Mac OS) the object, and then choose a command.
Delete Clip deletes objects that are clipping the selected object. For example,
if you scale text and the resulting characters are clipped, selecting this option
shows you the complete characters.
Create Artifact removes the object from the reading order so it isn’t read by a
screen reader or the Read Out Loud command.
Edit Image, which appears when a bitmap image is selected, opens an editing
program such as Adobe Photoshop.
Edit Object, which appears when a vector object is selected, opens an editing
program such as Adobe Illustrator.
Properties lets you edit properties for the content, tag, and text, such as adding
alternate text (Alt text) to an image to make it accessible.
Note: You can
export all the images
in a PDF ﬁle to JPEG,
PNG, TIFF, or JPEG2000
format by selecting
Export All Images in the
panel. Each image is
saved in a separate ﬁle.
