How to make password protected PDF file

If you are a teacher author and selling your teaching resources at Teachers Pay Teachers (or other marketplace), you might want to protect your PDF file so others won’t be able to steal your work. This is to protect your work, and also to protect clip art graphics and fonts you use in your work.

In in this tutorial I will show you how to turn your PDF file into a password protected PDF file. I’m using Adobe Acrobat Professional 6.0. This is actually an old version, however (if you’re using newer version) the steps are basically same.

1. Open your PDF file in adobe acrobat pro. Click the padlock icon “Secure”, choose “Restrict Opening and Editing..”


2. Pay attention to the “permission” box. Check mark in the box saying “Use a password to restrict…. and so on”. Then, enter your password.

From Printing Allowed section choose: HIGH RESOLUTION

From Changes Allowed section choose: NONE

DO NOT mark the box saying “Enable copying of text, and so on..”

Check mark the box saying “Enable text access for screen ready and so on…”

After done, save your file.


Another way to do this.

Open your PDF file in Adobe Acrobat Pro.

1. Choose “Document properties” from the File menu on the top of the page.


2. It goes to this box. Choose “SECURITY” (on the bottom of the left list), and then choose “Password Security”.


3. You will this box. Fill in the password and so on. Just like I explained earlier. After that, click Ok.


4. You will see confirmation box. It asks you to enter your password one more time.


Save your file once done.

Hope this quick tutorial helps you.

How to capture an image

First, open the pdf file with adobe reader. If you don’t have adobe reader, you can download it for free from

Zoom the image into 375%

(you can drag the sheet with your mouse the get into the circle you want. I want the top left bug, so I drag into that circle)

My screen now looks like this

On photoshop, press ctrl+N (press ctrl and N at the same time)

A box will pop up, with the following..

widht: 1280 pixels

height: 800 pixels

(note: 1280×800 is my monitor resolution)

resolution: 72 pixels/inch

Now, you will need to change the resolution into 300.

So, you will have 300 pixels/ inch (and not 72 pixels/ inch)

After that, click ok

the box will disappear

Press ctrl+V (at the same time)

Now, you will have your circle (from adobe reader) on photoshop.

Click the “elliptical Marquee Tool” from top left tool, or you can simply press “M”

Change the “Style” from normal into “fixed size”, then set widht “1,313” in and height “1,313 in”

click the bug image, and drag the cirlce into the right place of the image,

you will see dot running white (indicating the 1,313” circle)

now, we’re going to copy this circle, press Ctrl+c

press Ctrl+N

a bow will appear, with this..

widht: 393 pixels

height: 393 pixels

resolution: 300

from the drop down menu, you can change the pixels with inches,

when you change it into inches, you will get this size

widht: 1,31 inches

height: 1,31 inches

resolution: 300

click “ok”

we have a new blank document

press “ctrl+V”

you will have your circle on that document

now, we will save this one circle

from “file” menu (on top), choose “save as”, and from the dropdown menu, you can use the type of file you want.

If you want a transparent background, you can save as a “png” file

otherwise (with a white background), you can sace as a “jpg” file

Once you have this one circle (in one png or jpg file), you can import this one circle into microsoft word, or openoffice (or, you can also import it into photoshop), and then you can create a page with these circles on it (just copy paste this one cirlce over and over in a sheet/page)
