Inserting a Jpeg image into my pdf.

I'm using Acrobat Pro 9 and I want to insert an image into my pdf. I found instructions that I go to Comment & Markup>Stamps>Create Custom Stamp and it works fine as long as I use a *.png format picture.

If I try to use a jpeg, jpg or gif file I get an error message that
the input file is corrupted or one of a non-supported format.

Funny thing is, I can take the same jpg file and change the file extension to .png and it works fine.

Why doesn't Pro take a jpg file?
Thanks,
Mike

Hi.

the best way in acrobat 9 to insert any image, and the jpg is to the touch up object tool (view - toolbars - advanced editing) select the tool and ctrl click on the page and choose insert image. You can the scale it position it move it crop it etc

Thanks for the response but I'm still getting errors. I followed your instructions but when I right click and select "place image" and select my image I get the following message "The input file is corrupt or is an unknown/unsupported format". Also as I'm trying to add the image I see a box that says "opening image file as pdf".

As soon as I select OK on the above error message box I get the following message: "The selected image could not be converted and placed into the document"

Any other suggestions?
Thanks,
Mike
