Hi All, I have one requirement like open the existing PDF document and edit - basically add some image on the particular place and save them in PDF file. 1) Is it possible to edit the pdf after conversion into image in your image editor then finally generate the again the image into pdf? 2) Is there any library where i can load the existing pdf and edit them and finally save into the pdf document?

Please let me know your suggestion for above requirement apart from doubt also

Thanks and Regards, Sathish

I'm not aware of any libraries that support extended editing of a PDF file, although there's quite a few that would let you create them. Open source ones include PDFSharp and iTextSharp. I've also used cete's Dynamic PDF extensively (this is a commercial product) and while it would allow you create PDF files it has a disappointingly limiting API and is overall a poor product. We are currently evaluating TallPDF which already seems to be an order of magnitude better than cete's offering, although I personally haven't used it yet. However, there's lots and lots of libraries out there!

Sorry I can't be of more help. I've done lots of work generating PDF's, but not editing them :)
