Document modifications are a reality of life. No matter how confident we are in the final product, there is always a chance that there will be last minute edits or additions. Acrobat puts the power in your hands to modify content directly within the PDF or use your favorite program to update an existing image. Edit text or add images with the confidence that your document format will remain consistent.
Using the Tools > Edit PDF panel, you can modify any image within your PDF document. Acrobat provides you multiple ways to control your content. You can right-click on an image or multimedia to use the Edit PDF tools to directly control rotation, alignment, cropping, or other properties. Acrobat even enables you to edit content directly using image editing software, like Photoshop.
Acrobat’s image editing tools provide solutions for editing and arranging graphics within your PDF documents using familiar tools that are available in other document-editing programs. You can access the editing tools by clicking Edit PDF on the right panel, selecting an image or graphic, and using the format panel on the right to adjust your image to your needs.

- Rotate: Rotate your image clockwise or counterclockwise to fit your layout

Adding a watermark to your documents can provide copyright protection, as well as branding opportunities. There is a full range of options to create a watermark from a separate file or custom text, with advanced options to let you set print and display options. You can access the watermark tools by clicking Edit PDF on the right panel, choosing Watermark from the top menu, and choosing to Add, Update, or Remove the watermark with the following options:
- Rotation: Rotate your watermark (negative values rotate counter-clockwise)
- Opacity: Set the transparency of your watermark
