How to create a pdf file from multiple images ?

Dear All,
I want to create a SINGLE page pdf file from two or more page size images that are combined to make a single page pdf. Again, this question is on pdfs that are made out of several, atleast  two color images and a black-and-white mask for one of them.
I have such pdf files from an unknown source (the producer is edited out) whereby there are three tiff images, obtained using the well known pdfimages extractor.
When I want to make a pdf out of tiff or png or other image formats, I right click and tell Adobe Acrobat to make a pdf.
However, I dont know how I can give a command to select say,  three tif images and specify which is the mask for which and then join  them in a way that I get the pdf from the composite of the two color images and a mask for one of them.
Please help me out.
I am a little familiar with the pdf structure skeleton and when necessary, fixed xref tables in one of my favorite editors. A few years ago, I also wrote a bunch of javascripts to make some annotations and needed some automation and used some itext type libraries. However, I need your help in this problem as I am now rusty and forgot some of what I studied to solve my earlier problems. This is a new problem for me. Gentle hints from you would be very nice to help me in this problem. Please specify if necessary what manual and pages to read. in the pdfspec.
Best Regards

I would gladly mention that I am working on windows platform, preferably XP.
I can also work on linux for free products that come with it.

But adding other products, for the help of an adobe products user,
even if it outside adobe, shall add greater prestige to your company
and give impression of user-centeredness.

Well, just add the few pdf stanzas since you are proficient on it and
I am presently a little rusty as I mentioned. Just asking a little
extra yard, not even to go an extra mile.

Well, ascii format or uncompressed format that is human readable. I
know its a binary file, but human readable ascii version of it.
I hope you can give me some stanza and various other approaches
possible so I can select or combine things for myself. I see only a
miniscule number of posts claiming to have written masks in this forum
and then with no details.

  • Automate creating single PDF file from multiple documents

    Hi everyone ! I am testing the Adobe XI version, especially because I need it for a very specific function.I haven't found it yet, maybe you guys can help ?
    Basically, I need to make a user friendly system, that in one click will create a single PDF document from multiple files :
    To be more precise : I have in a folder on the network 25 different documents (Word and PDF mainly). Some of these documents change weekly. What I need as an end result is a single PDF, that combines these 25 ones in a specific order, and the tricky part is I need to automate this so that someone with absolutely no knowledge of Acrobat can perform this task, with just a click.
    I have found of course the procedure to manually build such a combined PDF, but as you can see it does not fulfil my needs.
    So that's it, as simple as that
    As a bonus question : I am still struggling with the construction of these documents : in the Word documents I use, there are both internal links within the document, and links between the documents (pointing to other Word files, or PDF files). I keep losing those links when I combine, is there something I am missing ?
    Second bonus question : I would like to have multiple levels of signets, but for some reason all my signets are at the same hierarchical level. Anything I am doing wrong ?
    A free electronic doughnut for anyone giving me a hint !

    When you combine you have many PDFs together in one, new PDF.  Your orignal links are from one specific file to another specific file. A combine does not change the link in the original file. So the link is now from the  PDFcombined  to the second specific file. However, "second specific file" won't be present - so, "broken link".
    Be well...

    How to transfer my PDF files from my laptop to my iPhones 5 s and how to make folder to store those files?

    The iphone does not have a file system to create a folder in, instead apps themselves are responsible for storing their files,
    Use an app like ibooks or acrobat reader.
    You can then transfer the files via itunes or email them and then use the open in... option and select your chosen app.
    They will then be stored within that app.

  • How can I read pdf files from LabVIEW with different versions of Acrobat reader?

    How can I read pdf files from LabVIEW with different versions of Acrobat reader?
    I have made a LabVIEW program where I have possibility to read a PDF document.  When I made this LabVIEW program it was Acrobat Reader 5.0.5 that was installed on the PC. Lather when the Acrobat Reader was upgraded to version 6.0, there was an error when VI tries to launch the LabVIEW program. And Later again when we upgraded to Acrobat Reader 7.0.5 I must again do some changes and rebuild the EXE files again
    It isn't so very big job to do the changes in one single LabVIEW program, but we have built a lot of LabVIEW programs so this take time to due changes every time vi update Acrobat Reader. (We have build EXE files.)
    The job is to right click the ActiveX container and Click "Insert ActiveX Object", then I can brows the computer for the new version of acrobat Reader. After this I must rebuild all the "methods" in the Activex call to make the VI executable again.
    Is there a way to build LabVIEW program so I don't have to do this job every time we update Acrobat Reader?
    This LabVIEW program is written in LabVIEW 6.1, but I se the problem is the same in LabVIEW 8.2.

    hi there
    try the vi\platform\browser.llb\Open Acrobat
    it uses DDE or the command line to run an external application (e.g. Adobe Acrobat)

    How can I transmit PDF files from my Mac to my iPad, How can I transmit PDF files from my Mac to my iPad

    Yes you can definitely do this. You'll need an app on the iPad that handles PDF viewing and editing. There are many around - two of the best I've seen are GoodReader and PDF Expert.
    In iTunes when you iPad is connected to your PC, go to the Apps tab and scroll down and you'll see the File Sharing section. You can drag files to there to share them to your iPad.
    You could also look at online file sync services like PDF to ePub Maker if you prefer not to have to connect your iPad to a PC

  • How do I transfer PDF files from PC to IPAD using Itunes 12.1.2.  Previous versions let me drag file in Itunes to Ipad and files appeared under Ibook but can't get it to work in latest 12.1.2 version.

    How do I transfer PDF files from PC (Windows 7) to IPAD using Itunes 12.1.2.  I would like to do files manually rather then auto synch.  Previous versions let me drag file in Itunes to Ipad and files appeared under Ibook and then I could move them to an appropriate collection title.  The interface appears to have changed in the latest ITunes version and I am not sure what the proper procedure is.

    King_Penguin - Thanks it worked perfectly.  I had my pdf files copied into ITunes on my PC but when I clicked on a pdf file to copy it I thought the sidebar would appear with my IPAD name and then I would drag it over.  I didn't realize that I needed to click-and start dragging it towards the left-hand side for the sidebar to appear.  It worked like a charm - THANKYOU!!!
