Discover how to create and embed a photo gallery, portfolio, or product catalog into a single, interactive PDF file—with one line of code. This course demonstrates how to create an interactive gallery with Adobe Bridge, featuring your own photos or files. Using Adobe Acrobat, author Chris Converse also shows how to embed the entire interactive user experience into a single, shareable PDF file. Use this technique to share photos, promote portfolios, or show off a product lineup in an easy-to-distribute format.
Hi, this is Chris Converse and this is a course on embedding a photo gallery into a PDF file. So I wanna start by showing the final project. I'm gonna open up the myGallery PDF inside of the Final Project folder. Notice when this PDF opens, we have the photography that fades into place. We have some thumbnails on the left-hand side, have a scrollbar that I can scroll through. Clicking on individual thumbnails will bring up the main picture in the main area and do a crossfade. There's also a Play button down here that I can click and go into Auto Play or Slide Show mode. And I can even turn on and off the thumbnails by clicking on this button here.
So this entire interactive experience is gonna be embedded into a PDF file and we're gonna create this entire experience using Adobe Bridge. So we're not gonna be coding anything. And Bridge will give us the ability to put together multiple types of templates that are Flash- driven, all with external data, and all based on folder of photos and images that we bring into Adobe Bridge. Now, although the web community has been moving away from Flash as a format that they use on their web sites, Flash is alive and well inside of Adobe Reader and Adobe Acrobat. So, anybody who's Acrobat Reader 9 or later can look at your PDF file on their computer and get this full interactive experience, all contained inside of one PDF file.
So I hope this sounds interesting to you and if so let's get started with the first movie.
