Russ can transform documents, reports, and other publications into an optimized PDF to make them easier to share with others or help you to set up your office with the software to enable you to do the same.
PDF format embeds the fonts and layout into the document and doesn't require the reader to have specialized software.
PDF documents are a great solution for replacing frequently changing website content like newsletters and pricing sheets.
By using generic file names you can overwrite earlier versions of PDFs with updated documents containing current information.
Alternatively, you can maintain a series of publications such as monthly or quarterly newsletters, but that requires more skills with managing either your website or blog.
PDF Software Not Required
Current web browsers will display PDFs and most now support advanced features such as fillable forms or internal navigation.
PDFs are ideal for documents such as application forms that need to be filled out then printed.
Professional PDF Software
While recent versions of most word processors can produce PDFs, they tend to be larger because the compression isn't as effective as dedicated PDF software.
It is also important to know other basic steps that can reduce the size of PDF documents.
- Reduce the size of any images (graphics) before inserting them into your document.
- Stick to two or three fonts (each one needs to be embedded).
- Consider content which can be condensed and still be interesting.
- Use a professional PDF editor where possible.
