Adding a background to PDF files helps to improve the overall readability of the document. The content in the PDF is more engaging and readers will take notice if you have a good appearance of the document. The background can also be used to highlight the highlights of the PDF.

Background images can be used to add a watermark, or other subtle design, to documents. In Aspose.PDF for ะก++, each PDF document is a collection of pages and each page contains a collection of artifacts. The BackgroundArtifact class can be used to add a background image to a page object.

The following code snippet shows how to add a background image to PDF pages using the BackgroundArtifact object with C++.

void WorkingWithPages::AddBackgrounds()
    String _dataDir("C:\\Samples\\");

    // Create a new Document object
    auto document = MakeObject<Document>();

    // Add a new page to document object
    auto page = document->get_Pages()->Add();

    // Create Background Artifact object
    auto background = MakeObject<BackgroundArtifact>();

    // Specify the image for backgroundartifact object
    background->set_BackgroundImage(System::IO::File::OpenRead(_dataDir + u"background.png"));

    // Add backgroundartifact to artifacts collection of page

    // Save the document
    document->Save(_dataDir + u"ImageAsBackground_out.pdf");
