unfortunately PDF are not images, it is a document like Word or ODT.
If you need to upload PDF then you need to use a file field type.

sorry but this is not possible with a simple way.

It requires many code changes and also it will have some limitations:
1) You can only use "Normal File Input" as upload method because pdf as images are not manageable with Javascript
2) This will not be compatible with all servers because it require some php extension
Due to these limitations we can not be take your request as feature request for future releases.
