Is it is possible to remove a specific image from a 1 page document using pdftk? Have 1000+ documents in a directory and need a quick way to remove the same unwanted image from every document.

What have you tried? What have you looked up? Is the image in the same place on every document? How was the PDF created? Is the image the same in each document? There's too little information to go on here. – Canadian Luke Jun 20 '14 at 15:31
The image is the same in each document, exactly at the same location. Each PDF document is 1 page. I understand it is possible to substitute text using pdftk, sed and then pdftk. Could find anything on removing/substituting an image. The finished 1 page document was created from a PDF form file and an xfdf file. Hope this helps – user335126 Jun 21 '14 at 16:47
