    When I open a PDF in CS6 I have a problem editing it.

    I use the eyedropper tool and the invoke the eraser tool. When try to
    erase part of an image, the background erases to a checkerboard. What
    am I doing wrong?

    Go here to see a sample image. http://dropcanvas.com/ymckh

    Thanks

    When you erase in an image with only one layer, you show the
    "checkerboard" that indicates transparency; you're seeing "through" the
    image. This means you have an image with a hole in it. That's the way
    Photoshop works.

    Yup!
    Add a layer filled with white below the layer you are working on.
