I am creating editable marketing flyers for a client. I'm opening my PDF (originally created in Illustrator) in Acrobat and adding editable form feilds for the end user to add their contact information to each piece. The enduser also wants to add a photo with their contact info. Is there a way to create this as part of the form? Ultimately, I'm wanting them to be able to insert a picture into a specified area and not have to resize the photo. Is this possible in Acrobat professional?
Any information would be greatly appreciated! I'm working in CS3 and Acrobat 8, on a mac.
You can create a button and add a script to it that would prompt the user
to select an image file when that button is clicked. Then that image can be
displayed using the same button (buttons can show either an image or text).
Thanks so much for your help! I'm going to try and work with it and see how it goes. I've never added script before.
You've been so helpful, I really appreciate you sharing your knowledge!
The script in question is:
by the MouseUp event, and of course set the button's layout to "Icon Only"
I also was needing this information, thank you. But when you insert a picture into the button, it is only allowing the enduser to insert a pdf into the picture button. How do I enable them to insert jpg, gif, png etc? My endusers will not be technologically savvy and will just be entering information into the given fields...

I read that Adobe Reader doesn't include anything to do image file conversion to PDF. So it could only add PDFs.
It (buttonImportIcon) doesn't work with Reader (6-10). It simply isn't available, regardless of usage rights, execution context, or anything else.
I'm back. The picture information worked great - for Macs. Is there a script that works on both Mac and PC? When the PC user mouses over, the hand shows up and highlights the button, but when they click it, there is no prompt for inserting a file. Is there something else I need to do? Would I have both scripts on there so it can be used by either pc or mac - i did see there was an 'add' button where the scripts go. Most likely it will only be a PC user with the pdf in the end, so that is more important as i can make a file for the mac user.
thanks so much for you help!
Ah, i did not really read that 'fine print'. they are just using reader. they will be filling out the form. so is there no way for them to insert a picture in an editable pdf? I'm just making a basic form and all other fields work, we just need to be able to enter in an image. will we just have to make a template in Word? please say it isnt so....
If you have LiveCycle Designer, which comes with Acrobat Pro for Windows (but not Mac), you can create a form that includes an image field. Otherwise, we have to hope that they decide to restore this feature to Reader in the future, something for which I remain hopeful: http://forums.adobe.com/thread/743823
