Copy images in Acrobat 7

Acrobat allows users to copy and re-use images from PDF documents when this is not specifically prohibited by the file’s security settings.

Here’s how:

  1. In Adobe Acrobat, choose the ‘Select Image’ tool.
  2. Select an image by clicking on it
  3. Windows: Right-click on the selected image and select ‘Copy to clipboard’ or hold Ctrl-C to copy the image to the clipboard.

    Mac:Ctrl-click on the selected image and select ‘Copy to clipboard’ or hold Option-C to copy the image to clipboard.

  4. Open your chosen source program (e.g. Microsoft Word) and paste the image into the desired location (Ctrl-V on Windows machines and Option-V on Macs).

All done. Simple, huh?
