To insert an image into a PDF, you need to use the Edit object tool located in the Content tab on the right. When selected the tool, place cursor over the page and right click (ctrl click on mac) and choose place image.
Locate your file and press OK, on completion you can reesize it by placing your cursor in the corners. You can also rotate it, and crop it too.

To paste an image into a PDF, you can no longer paste into Acrobat from an external program such as word, however you can copy and paste images from one PDF to another.

Hope this helps?

You can do this using adobe acrobat application. All you need to do is open the pdf file that you wish to edit. Look for the "document" option on the menu and choose "insert pages" button. You can utilize this function to insert images in .gif, .tiff and .jpeg format. Locate the image on your computer and insert it on the area where you want it to be. You can have it either at the beginning or the end portion of the pdf file. You can also modify the page order once you are done importing the image. Choose the "file" tab and hit the "save" button.

You can also edit the pdf file on Word, Spreadsheet, Image and PowerPoint slides among others. Some prefer using the MS Word format but this can be tricky because the file can damage the layout of the file.

In Acrobat XI, move your cursor to the location where you would like to place the image, right-click and select Add Image. Browse to select your image and place it in your document.

To copy/paste from another program like Word, first copy the image from Word. Then, select the Edit Text & Images command in Acrobat. Move your cursor to the location you want to paste the graphic, right-click, and select Paste.
