PDFPictures Object (IPDFPicures Interface)

This object represents a collection of user-defined pictures added to a PDF document (PDFPicture objects). It contains methods for getting the number of pictures in the collection, accessing a single element of the collection and iterating through the collection. The collection is accessible via the PDFExportParams object.

Important! When exporting to PDF, ABBYY FineReader Engine does not preserve the picture transparency.


  • The indexing of ABBYY FineReader Engine collections starts with 0.
  • The foreach statement in C# (for each in Visual Basic .NET) can be used to manipulate the collection.
