Insert image into PDF without paying for exorbitant licenses, or leaking your PDFs. Our add image to PDF online API tool is designed for small and large businesses that need to automate adding their images to PDFs. Here is why we recommend that you insert an image into PDF online, using our API tool.
Benefits of Using Our Add Multiple Images to PDF API
Securely Add Image to PDF File
Our API tool uses end-to-end encryption, which protects your files from unauthorized access. That helps you to comply with privacy rules and protect your business from leaking its privileged information.
When you use free API services, you are likely to forfeit your copyrights to the service provider. However, when you insert an image into fillable PDFs with our tool, you retain all your image rights.
We only charge you for what you use, which eliminates the need for expensive licenses, or losing your copyrights. Furthermore, our API tool is easy to use, as you shall see below.
How to Use API with Large PDF Files
Large files can take a long time to process, especially when you put images into PDF that are also bulky. We understand that, which is why our tool offers additional options for processing large files asynchronously. It then outputs the processed files for download.
All API calls will time out within 25 seconds unless you run them in the “async” mode. To run your API call in async mode, simply set the “async” key to “true”, which will create a background job, and output a unique id “jobId”. It will also output the final “URL” for temporary access when the job is ready.
To view the status of the “add image to PDF” job being processed in async mode, use “/job/check” along with the “jodId”, to get a “success” status when it is ready.
How to Upload Files and Run a Background Job
Step 1: Temporary Upload URL
You need temporary URLs that you will use to upload and access PDFs and Images. You can request them using “/file/upload/get-presigned-url”. That will return “presignedUrl” for uploading, and “URL” for accessing your files.
Step 2: Upload Files
Using “PUT” to upload your file to “presignedUrl” that was generated in step 1, and then access the uploaded file from “URL”, which was also generated in step 1.
Step 3: Call API
To add images to a file, call the API with “URL” as the input param. Furthermore, set as “async” to “true” to get a URL or URLs, and their corresponding “jobId”. These “jobIds” uniquely identify the jobs you are running asynchronously on the server, in the background.
Step 4: Check Job Status
You can use a “/job/check” API method to get a “success” status when the job is ready.
Step 5: Download File
You will get a “success” status when the job is ready. Use the “URL” from step 3 above to access and download the PDFs that now have images on them.
