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?

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

hope this helps?
