How to add a Hyperlink to existing image in PDF to make it clickable ?


Thanks for contacting support.

You may please use following code snippet in order to add hyperlink to an existing image inside PDF document.

ImagePlacementAbsorber absorber = new ImagePlacementAbsorber();
Document doc = new Document(dataDir + "FullPolicy.pdf");
foreach(ImagePlacement img in absorber.ImagePlacements)
 LinkAnnotation link = new LinkAnnotation(img.Page, img.Rectangle);
 link.Action = new GoToURIAction("");
// Save the document
doc.Save(dataDir + "ImageWithHyperlink.pdf"); 

In case of any further assistance, please feel free to let us know.

I got this error in Saving

An unhandled exception of type ‘System.IndexOutOfRangeException’ occurred in Aspose.Pdf.dll

It seems you are using API without any license. The exception you are facing is about limitation of trial version. We request you to please use a valid license and in case you do not have one, please consider applying 30-days temporary license in order to evaluate API without any limitation.

Sorry asad, now it’s working fine but give me no result, it seems no images has been grabbed by absorber and don’t went to the loop

Thanks for sharing sample PDF.

We have tested the scenario in our environment and observed that your PDF document does not contain any image resource on its first page however, it contains several images in its other pages. In case you were using same code snippet which we have shared earlier, it is possible to face an exception as previous code snippet searches only first page for images.

You may please use following line of code and modify previous code snippet accordingly to get other images.


Using above line of code, API was able to add hyperlink to every found image in your document. For your reference, an output PDF is also attached. In case of any further assistance, please feel free to let us know.
