Hi pixies

Editing an image that has been exported from coreldraw to PDF

exactly that

I have been sent an image (advert) that has been converted from a cdr to a pdf, it has embedded fonts etc, so i can highlight and copy text from the pdf version, but I need to alter the text slightly, can I import the pdf into Corel (I am downloading the trial as we speak) or is there another way to edit it.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, as everything i have tried to this point has imported the text and advert background as one layer, rather than separate layers

Being an adobe format, I'm pretty sure you can import .pdf's into Photoshop, which preserves layers etc.

Also, Acrobat Professional has redact tools, which let you change text I believe.

Corel can do it but it depends on the PDF version and also if you have the same fonts. Illustrator does a much better job of editing PDFs though - or, as nofam mentioned, you can use Acrobat Professional if the changes are minor.

Well I have done the job in Corel, although not having the fonts was an issue,

Although i guess i can fix that by digging through m old coreldraw 3.5in diskettes and seeing if they are on those
