[Tex/LaTex] Insert a piece of PDF file as image


Recently I learned how to include just one page of a PDF file as image using \includegraphics, but now I need to include just part of the page and not  the entire page.

How can I include just 50% or 65% of a PDF page as image in a document?

Best Answer

You can trim and clip an included image using the trim and clip key-values:

enter image description here

\usepackage{graphicx}% http://ctan.org/pkg/graphicx
\includegraphics[scale=.5]{example-image-a} \par
\includegraphics[trim=100 50 100 50,clip]{example-image-a}

The elements supplied to trim=<lx> <ly> <ux> <uy> are the bounding box values in bps. Read up on the details in the Graphics Guide (section 4 The Graphics packages, p 7 onward).

adjustbox provides similar functionality.
