Images are beautiful, aren’t they? In this piece, I’ll show how you can add image to PDF using PDFBear.

To insert an image into a PDF, you don’t have to learn the complex instructions of PDF editing software. With PDFBear, you can easily add pictures to PDF in a snap. This article covers the step-by-step guide on how you can add images to your PDF file for free.

But before I dive into the tutorial, let’s see why you’d want to insert images into PDF in the first place.

Why Insert Image into PDF

So, you might be thinking, why add a picture to PDF, right? Well, here’s a scenario:

For instance, you are given the task of creating a presentation of the upcoming product in your company. You have all the text laid out in your PDF file, but there are no images of the product in it. Now, you can unprofessionally leave the file as is to bore the viewers. Or add relevant pictures to the PDF file to actively engage the viewers.

From showing relevant image-based info to beautifying the file view, there are countless reasons behind inserting images into PDF.
