There are three ways to insert an image into a Bluebeam Revu PDF. Once you have it in the PDF, you can mark up the image and then copy that to paste into an email.
The best way to insert an image is to use the Image Tool by typing the I key on your keyboard, clicking on the Image icon in the main Toolbar, or by clicking Tools > Markup > Image >From File.
After the image is inserted as a markup, you can easily crop it.
The built-in Windows Snip & Sketch app allows you to quickly take a screen capture.
This isn't ideal, but you can open image files directly into Bluebeam and it converts the image into a PDF. The problem with this is you cannot adjust, crop, or move the image because it becomes the background of the PDF sheet.
A new PDF file is generated with a file name that matches the file name of the original image.
The process for inserting your logo into a PDF is the same as using the Image Tool above. However, image type is important. Ideally, you want to insert a PNG file since logos usually have only a few colors. PNG files work best because the file size is small and logos usually only have a couple of colors. Plus the logo image will be more crisp.
The best option is to export your logo file from a vector image editor (like Adobe Illustrator) to a PDF file. From there, you can open the PDF and use the Snapshot tool in Bluebeam to copy the logo, then paste it into a new file. This maintains the vector information and make for a perfectly crisp logo.
You can see a demonstration of this process in the YouTube video at the top of this page.
Once the image is in your PDF, you can add any type of markup that you normally use including symbols from the Tool Sets or just the standard Text and Leader markups.
Sending marked up photos in the body of an email is a great way to communicate to colleagues, engineers, or contractors. The easiest way to do this is to use the Windows Snip & Sketch tool mentioned above.
After the sketch is on your clipboard, you can change over to Outlook, Gmail, or any other email program and press Control-V to paste the image into the message.
