Replacing text & images in PDFs with PHP

To find text or images and replace it in a PDF.

$doc = new PDFDoc($filename);
$replacer = new ContentReplacer();
$page = $doc->GetPage(1);

// replace an image on the page
$target_region = $page->GetMediaBox();
$img = Image::Create($doc->GetSDFDoc(), $imagename);
$replacer->AddImage($target_region, $img->GetSDFObj());

// replace a text placeholder
$replacer->AddString("NAME", "John Smith");

// replace text in a given region
$text = "hello world";
$replacer->AddText($target_region, "hello world");
