How to Delete an Image in a PDF File

Portable Document Format (PDF) documents typically cannot be changed, unless you own the PDF creation software, Adobe Acrobat. In Acrobat, you can edit text as well as an object or image, whether you want to move something to a new position or delete it altogether. These capabilities come in handy if you want to do simple changes to a document. However, more detailed editing should be done in the document’s authoring application, such as a layout program or word processor.
