Two Simple Ways to Insert PDF into PowerPoint 2007

Sometimes, you may want to insert a PDF file to PowerPoint 2007 presentation to better demonstrate your ideas and thinking.  So I would like to share my experience to  insert PDF to PowerPoint 2007.

Way 1. With Adobe Reader and PowerPoint 2007

Step 1. Put the mouse in the position where you want to insert a PDF file, go to Menu Bar and click Insert. Pick up Object to select the PDF for inserting.

Step 2. A dialog box pops up for you to choose the object format. Adobe Acrobat Document is in the first class in Object type, click OK to browse the PDF.

The PDF file is inserted to PowerPoint 2007 as below.

This is really simple when the PDF file has a singlepage, but for a multi-pages PDF file, PowerPoint only shows the first page, how about other pages in the PDF file?

Step 3. Open the PDF file in Adobe Reader to import additional pages. Select the Snapshot Tool from the toolbar, or click on Tools on the menu bar and select Basic Menu followed by Snapshot Tool.

Step 4. Draw the box to the whole page to copy the snapshot to clipboard. In PowerPoint 2007, paste the copied snapshot to the location where you want to insert PDF into PowerPoint.

Repeat step 3 and step 4 to import whole multi-page PDF to PowerPoint 2007.

It must be a hard job to insert PDF into PowerPoint 2007 one by one using this way if the PDF has 100+ pages. So, is there any easier way to allow us to effortlessly insert PDF to PowerPoint?

2. Insert PDF to PowerPoint 2007 with a PDF to PowerPoint converter
