- Hello, I'm Anne-Marie Concepcion, and welcome to Acrobat 10 Essential Training. Adobe Acrobat 10 is Adobe's flagship program that lets you create, manage, edit, and enhance the PDF documents that are used around the world by millions of people to share and distribute their files. In this course, I'll be showing you how to import and convert native documents from a variety of programs to PDF and then to export them from PDF back out to programs like Microsoft Word and Excel, how to create interactive PDFs, and put together beautiful PDF portfolios, how to add rich media, like flash video and MP3s that can be played directly in Reader and Acrobat, how to collaborate on document reviews, whether by e-mail or via a Cloud server like the free, how to create interactive forums, and then easily distribute them and collect the form data, how to use the most powerful print production tools to check and correct your files for commercial printing, how to secure PDFs with passwords and other methods, and how to easily find and delete sensitive data, and I even cover the free Adobe Reader, which is also in version 10, and for the first time lets users add comments to any PDF and save those in the files.

Acrobat has long been my favorite Adobe program, mainly for its breadth of tasks that it can do, and I'm thrilled to be able to share what I know about Acrobat 10 with you today, so let's get started with Acrobat 10 Essential Training.
