Dave's Favorites: Turn Photos Into Adobe PDFs
If you work in the business world, you probably already know that Adobe's Portable Document Format is a nearly universal way to share all kinds of documents. Why? Mainly because PDF is convenient; you can transform text documents, presentations, business graphics, brochures, and all kinds of other documents into a common format that anyone with Adobe Reader can view. The format also ensures that everyone sees documents the same way, regardless of whether you're looking at it on a PC, Mac, or PDA. And finally, PDFs are fairly tamperproof. Yes, it's possible to crack open a PDF file and change it, but it's not easy--and most people don't have the necessary software.
So the obvious question is "Can I create a PDF with my digital photos?" You sure can: You can create a PDF with photos, captions, and any other elements you like. All you need is PDF Redirect, which lets you create a PDF file just by clicking the Print button in any Windows program--Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, your favorite image editor, and more. It's really that simple, and the end result looks and works like any PDF file created by Adobe's own software.
PDF Redirect is free (though a more elaborate version, PDF Redirect Pro, costs $20) and you can get a copy from EXP Systems.
