PDF-Marker - a PDF Marking tool

Welcome to the PDF-Marker home page. PDF-Marker is a tool to apply 'stamps' - text and images - to PDF files and allow to update/change or remove these markings later (permanent markings that could not be changed are also possible). PDF-Marker was written by Frank Siegert who also develops the PStill PDF converter system.

PDF-Marker is also available as Win32 DLL for adding PDF 'stamping' to your own applications, versions for MacOS X, Linux, Sun Solaris, HP UX, SGI IRIX, IBM AIX and FreeBSD on request.

While PDF-Marker is made for speed and allows for change/removeable markings, PStill also can impose markings on PDF pages using its Scripting Interface, also very complex ones.

Please a take a look at this PStill tutorial on how to apply a stamp.


What can PDF-Marker do?

  • Apply markings to PDF
    Markings can be underlaying or toplaying, contain multiple lines of text and an image (including transparent parts) per document. Markings can be defined by a script that can also be included into the PDF result and later retrieved. This way even the marking definitions that make up the 'stamp' can be transported and changed/added to later.

  • Change markings already applied to a PDF
    PDF-Marker can update any markings it has applied to a PDF, thus allows for status changes of the documents later.

  • Remove markings from a PDF
    PDF-Marker can remove any markings it has applied to a PDF, thus revealing the original.

  • Works as command line driven program
    PDF-Marker is currently available for Windows (98,ME,NT,2k and XP), Solaris and Linux as command line program. As such it can be easily included or called by other programs or scripts.

  • Fast and Compatible
    The system was written for speed and compatibility. While conversion speed depends on the input and the system PDF-Marker runs on, in most cases applying or changing a mark does not take more than a few seconds. Like PStill PDF-marker is a stand-alone program and does not need any other applications installed.
