Autopopulate PDF with Pictures Script?

Aug 5, 2012 9:31 PM

I do home inspections and always take camera shots in the same sequence, every time. I then take these pictures and add them to a PDF template that I then send off to the client. This process is being done many times a day manually for each house I inspect.

 

Would it be possible to create a script that automatically populates a tempate with the corresponding picture number in the camera?

 

Please see the image below to illustrate the issue (please click to enlarge)

I am not knowledgeable in Javascript or programming; however, I just started learning python.

    I was under the impression that picture number ranges from 1 to 9999. Acrobat created forms can not directly import images, but LiveCycle Designer forms can import images.

    This is possible to do automatically in Acrobat (but not Reader) if you know the location and names of the files. Will the image files have the same names every time?
