27 September 2020 Adding images to pdfs (macOS)

The macOS Preview app does a great job inserting signatures to existing pdfs. I was hoping it could overlay images just as easily. Doesn't look like it's possible, without exporting/reimporting to image formats and losing pdf structure. Did I miss something?

In any case, I found formulatepro. Dormant at Google Code Archive, but also checked in to github. With a tiny patch, it builds and runs on Catalina. One can easily insert an image via "File > Place Image…".
