Insert an image into a PDF in Kotlin

Sample Kotlin code to use PDFTron SDK for programmatically inserting various raster image formats (e.g. TIFF, JPEG, JPEG2000, JBIG2, GIF, PNG, BMP, etc.) into a PDF document. Learn more about our PDF Editing & Manipulation Library.

To run this sample, get started with a free trial of PDFTron SDK.
