How do you edit a PDF file using Photoshop?

The quickest version is to check the “last updated” date in the Properties of the file, like I am doing here in Soda PDF. If the document has been modified after the last time you saved it, it’s likely been edited. You can use a “compare documents” tool that will outline any changes between 2 versions of a document. If the file is saved in something like SharePoint, the version control log should be viewable. You can also lock the file with a local digital signature. This is like a wax seal. If it’s been changed you’ll know. You can easily remove it in Soda PDF.

Edit PDF: All You Need to Know

A second step would be if Photoshop could actually create an actual PDF for you, this would be extremely hard to do but is an achievable option. There are many ways to convert a PDF to a PDF. As a PDF conversion can be difficult, it would be extremely difficult to cover the text which is written in PDF. There is only a single option: converting in MS Word or OpenOffice. If you are able to edit text in the PDF in Word, the document will be fully editable and ready for use. It is also possible to convert PDFs to images, so you can edit the text without losing the image too. This may also be impossible as all text would have to be replaced and this would not be possible to do in Photoshop. There is also PDF to HTML which does not produce a usable result. The best you can.
