with Garrick Chow

Video: welcome

I'm Garrick Chow, and welcome to learning Acrobat 7. In this series of movies I'm going to be showing you a lot of cool things that you can do to your PDF documents using this latest version of Acrobat. If you're brand new to Acrobat and using PDF's, you are going to be surprised when you see the neat things you can do to your PDF documents using this program. Even if you have used Acrobat in the past you are going to like the new features and enhancements that Adobe has made to this program. As is the case with Acrobat 6, Acrobat 7 comes in both the standard and professional versions.

PDF has become the standard format for electronically sharing documents. But what can you do with your PDFs once they're created? Acrobat 7 Essential Training shows you how to take your PDFs to the next level by adding interactive elements such as links, bookmarks, and form fields. You'll learn to tweak your PDFs using Acrobat Distiller, make changes to them using Acrobat's editing tools, and keep them safe using the new security features. Covering both the Standard and Professional versions of Acrobat 7, these movies ensure that you'll master the key features of this diverse application in no time.

welcome

I'm Garrick Chow, and welcome to learning Acrobat 7. In this series of movies I'm going to be showing you a lot of cool things that you can do to your PDF documents using this latest version of Acrobat. If you're brand new to Acrobat and using PDF's, you are going to be surprised when you see the neat things you can do to your PDF documents using this program. Even if you have used Acrobat in the past you are going to like the new features and enhancements that Adobe has made to this program. As is the case with Acrobat 6, Acrobat 7 comes in both the standard and professional versions.

I am going to be using professional in these movies but I will point out the features that don't appear in standard. The biggest feature that doesn't appear in standard is its lack of the ability to create interactive forms. There are a couple differences between the two programs and I will be sure to point those out as we go. If you are new to Adobe Acrobat, make sure you don't confuse the Adobe Acrobat with Adobe reader. Reader is the free program you can download from Adobes web site to view PDF documents but it has no PDF editing capabilities of its own.

When you want to edit, enhance or alter your PDF in any way you have to use Acrobat. Again, reader is just for viewing, Acrobat is for changing or enhancing your PDF document. The good news is that reader and Acrobat standard and Acrobat professional are almost identical when it comes to navigating and viewing a PDF document so why don't we start there by taking a look at the Acrobat 7 interface.
