Adobe Acrobat Professional is the primary tool used to create and manipulate PDF documents. PDFs can contain text, images, form fields and other content elements. Images can be added to or removed from PDF documents using Adobe Acrobat Pro. The process to remove an image from a PDF document changed slightly from the process in Acrobat 9 Pro with the release of Acrobat X Pro.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Double-click the PDF containing the image you want to remove. This will open it in Adobe Acrobat Pro.

  2. 2

    Click "Tools" in the top menu bar. Select "Content," and click "Edit Object." If you are using Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro, select "Advanced Editing" under "Tools," and click "TouchUp Object."

  3. 3

    Select the image you want to remove in the document.

  4. 4

    Press "Delete" on your keyboard. The image will now be deleted.

  5. 5

    Save your document and continue working or close Adobe Acrobat Pro.

Tips and warnings

  • You can also place, flip or edit images using the "Edit Object Tool."
