Adobe PDF Conversion Tool

Recently my agency launched for a global IT client their ANZ website. As part of this and numerous other tactical projects including EDM’s, we’ve had to convert for the client a number of files into PDF format.

You’d think that would be straight forward.

Download any number of PDF conversion tools from www.download.com and away you go!

Not so.

What we found is a mine field of unreliable conversion tools, either messing up the layout, font, formatting or completely ignoring the fact there are hyperlinks in the original document that are “kinda critical” to the overall strategy and user experience.

So, I thought lets see what Adobe has in relation to conversion tools….and I found a very sophisticated BETA site built in Flash 9 just for this purpose.

Acrobat.com

Get on, use it, and shortly you’ll pay the tiny subscription fee that I’m about too, as not only does it convert your files, it also saves your documents online for easy reference.

I’ve not check all the functionality yet, but will let you know cool features as I uncover them.
