Writing an image to PDF

Jul 11, 2013 10:44 AM

Hi everybody,


I encountered a problem when writing a pdf file in Flash Builder. I need to save some images from jpg/png files, but the method:

pdf.addImage(image, null, 20, 200);

requires the image to be a DisplayObject, which I do not know how to obtain from my jpg/png files.

I would be extremely grateful if you can give me a suggestion. Thank you!

    You don't write what library you are using for export image to PDF, but I can suggest that is AlivePDF.

    If it true and your image is valid png/jpg file in ByteArray you can try to use addImageStream method like that:


    pdf.addImageStream(image, ColorSpace.DEVICE_RGB, new Resize(Mode.NONE, Position.LEFT), 0, 0, 20, 200);

    For example, you can load image by using Loader/URLLoader. After this you will have a Bitmap instance with your image. And then you can use addImage(bitmap...).

    Try to put

    var bytes:ByteArray =; 





    pdf.addImage(image, null, 20, 20);
