Here is a tutorial for creating a PDF document with an embedded image using iText Java Library.

1. Create a Java file, EmbeddedImage.java:

/**

 */
import com.itextpdf.kernel.pdf.*;
import com.itextpdf.layout.*;
import com.itextpdf.layout.element.*;
import com.itextpdf.io.image.*;
import java.io.*;

public class EmbeddedImage {
  public static void main(String args[]) throws IOException {
    PdfWriter writer = new PdfWriter("image.pdf");
    PdfDocument pdf = new PdfDocument(writer);
    Document document = new Document(pdf);
    Image fox = new Image(ImageDataFactory.create("fox.bmp"));
    Paragraph p = new Paragraph("The quick brown ")
      .add(fox)
      .add(" jumps over the lazy dog.");
    document.add(p);
    document.close();
  }
}
