PDF images visible in Adobe but not Preview or Mac Mail's Quick Look

I have a PDF that I am inserting an ad into. I copy and paste the ad from one PDF into another. The problem I am having is when I have the final 10-page PDF with the ad inserted in it, you can open the 10-page PDF in adobe and the ad will be visible, but if you open it in Preview or using Mac Mail's Quick Look, the ad isn't there. When I open the original file with the ad in it (that I copied and pasted the ad from) in Quick Look or Preview, the ad appears. I need to know why the ad isn't showing up after it is copy and pasted into a new PDF?

 

files can be viewed below or at this address:

"lanai3_Grand Jewels-001Winning.pdf" is the document I am copying the ad from

"lanai_122211.pdf" is the document I am pasting the ad into. The ad is on page 10. The ad is viewable in Adobe Acrobat but not in Preview or Mac Mail's Quick Look.

 

I am using Adobe Acrobat Pro 9 (version 9.4.6) to do the copy/paste/save.

 

I just clicked the above link and the ad doesn't show up online now either. It is supposed to be in the blank space on page 10.

 

Any help much appreciated!!!!!!

    I believe Mac Mail uses Preview to view the PDF. Preview isn't the best for viewing PDF's.

     

    You may want to ask your question in the Mac Preview forums.

    Hi,

     

    Acrobat 9 and older versions paste images as a stamp/comment which (that poorly functional) Preview cannot see, so you need to "flatten" the page if you want to see a pasted picture in Preview.

    (Preview, Mail and QuickLook shares the same rendering library)

     

    You can easily flatten one or several pages in a PDF using this free tools: http://abracadabrapdf.net/articles.php?lng=fr&pg=717
