How to Add One or More Pages to a PDF

Sometimes we need to add a page to a PDF file – for instance, you may have to insert an image or table in a report, add a blank page to a PDF document for a registration or application form, or add a cover page to an existing PDF. Of course, you’d also like these files to be processed quickly and accurately. If you are new to editing PDF files, it can be difficult to figure out which PDF-editing software is right for you. For managing PDF files, there are many software tools available, but they can be pretty pricey for what you get.

Movavi PDF Editor offers you an affordable and convenient way to insert pages into a PDF. You can also use the software to merge multiple PDF documents into a single file, split one PDF document into two, rotate and extract one or more specified pages. Our PDF Editor also gives you the option to extract PDFs as JPG, PNG, or BMP files, depending on the desired output format. With this program, you can easily create, edit, and manipulate any PDF document.

  • Step 1. Acquire the Software

    Download and run the PDF Editor executable on your PC or Mac and follow the on-screen instructions.

  • Step 2. Add Files

    Launch the program and click the Open File button to add the file you need to edit. Alternatively, you can drag and drop it into the workspace.

  • Step 3. Specify the Paged to Be Processed

    Specify the page or pages you want to process. If you need to add only one page, just double-click the required page. To select a range of pages, use keyboard shortcuts. If you want to select multiple pages, hold down the Shift key (the Cmd key for Mac) while clicking on the first and the last page. If the pages aren’t consecutive, hold down the Ctrl key and select the required pages one by one.
