How to Create PDF Button Form Field to insert PDF with Image

You can create a PDF Form so that your client can submit a PDF with images,  such as photo ID, using the free Adobe Reader XI or later.

Since the free Adobe Reader can only let you insert a PDF into a Push Button Form Field, you have to go with five steps in order to insert an image into the PDF form document.

On your side, you create a PDF Push Button so that your client can insert a PDF file into the Button Field. You can add an Entire PDF Submit Button if your client can submit an image.

Step 1: Read your PDF into PDFill PDF Editor

Step 2: Add a Push Button Form Field

  • Create a Push Button Form Field
  • Select "Options" Tab and Select "Icon Only" for the Layout
  • Enter a JavaScript: event.target.buttonImportIcon();
