Hi, I need to open a PDF file of an 8.5"x11" page of sheet music and add measure numbers to the sheet. I am a beginner with Photoshop. When I try to open the PDF file, it asks me things and I don't know what to select, such as bounding box, art, media, trim, etc.. When I pick one of those and open the file, it looks very odd, there's no white background. I figured out I could add a layer and paint bucket fill it white and place it behind the music and now it looks normal. I then tried to add a "1" and save the PDF. It appeared to work, but all my margins were gone..
Is there any way I can accomplish this? I also have the full version of Acrobat at my disposal but I couldn't figure out how to do it with that either....
At the risk of sounding like a geek, may I suggest the wonderful Adobe Help pulldown, which is like the instruction manual but with the ability to search for things you want help with. The full Acrobat might be the place to start, rather than Photoshop, as you are editing a file native to that program. Best of luck and keep asking questions.
