I have some simple floor plans for renovations that I need to send for review of concerned parties.  I can easily insert a comment box in whatever corner of the scan (this is great!).  I would like to insert pop up pictures in the same way.  Is this possible with a version of Adobe. I am running  Adobe Reader XI. I am running Windows 7 Professional, MS Office 2010 Professional (I haven't fiddled much with Power point although this is a possibility.
I am basic user for all software, but ready to learn.

I made this example in office 2003 power point
I inserted a floor plan image
then inserted a colour slide image I made then add a pointer to a specific area and that colour slide.
You could do the same add your floor plan image then insert an image with an arrow
Is this a good idea you could try instead of a popup?
Not sure what you mean by popup  that sounds like html?
cloor plan with popuparrowsIf you could explain a little better popup?

Thank you for taking the question up.  My idea is comes somewhat from what the Adobe reader already does.  It is possible to insert a comment that minimizes when not opened. It is visible by a little text box icon on the face of the document when one reads through the Document and can be opened (expanded). as needed.  I thought that it would be a good way to present pictures what exists off of the floor plan diagram.

Thank you for your help so far.  In fact, I did find something posted on "the Exchange" already for posting "stamps" on a document.  I have to follow through with it.  I will see if it woks.

Thank you
yes I see what your talking about, I opened Adobe Reader X1 and haven't actually done this type of task, it doesnt allow me to import an image of a floor plan
 I would need a current PDF of a floor plan to test it.
Will need to catchup ;P
