Add watermark to your PDF file with Python
Today I will show you how you can simply add a watermark to all pages within a PDF file.
A Pure-Python library built as a PDF toolkit. It is capable of:
- extracting document information (title, author, …)
- splitting documents page by page
- merging documents page by page
- cropping pages
- merging multiple pages into a single page
- encrypting and decrypting PDF files
- and more!
By being Pure-Python, it should run on any Python platform without any dependencies on external libraries. It can also work entirely on StringIO objects rather than file streams, allowing for PDF manipulation in memory. It is therefore a useful tool for websites that manage or manipulate PDFs.
Let's jump to the code
from PyPDF2 import PdfFileMerger, PdfFileReader, PdfFileWriter pdf_file = r'C:\Users\Stokry\Desktop\python\pdf\test1.pdf' watermark = r'C:\Users\Stokry\Desktop\python\pdf\logopdf.pdf' merged = r'C:\Users\Stokry\Desktop\python\pdf\merged.pdf' with open(pdf_file, "rb") as input_file, open(watermark, "rb") as watermark_file: input_pdf = PdfFileReader(input_file) watermark_pdf = PdfFileReader(watermark_file) watermark_page = watermark_pdf.getPage(0) output = PdfFileWriter() for i in range(input_pdf.getNumPages()): pdf_page = input_pdf.getPage(i) pdf_page.mergePage(watermark_page) output.addPage(pdf_page) with open(merged, "wb") as merged_file: output.write(merged_file)
The code will put a watermark on all pages within the PDF.
That's all. Keep coding.
