Converting Images and Other Files to PDF

Acrobat 9 can convert a variety of file types to PDF and then open them in a document window. The list of supported file types includes all the common vector and image formats (see the sidebar "Conversion File Types").

Converting these files to PDF is remarkably easy.

To convert a file to PDF:

  1. In Acrobat, choose File > Create PDF > From File; or, on the Tasks toolbar, choose Create > PDF from File (Figure 4.7).

    Figure 4.7 The Create menu on the Tasks toolbar lets you create a PDF file from a variety of sources.

    Acrobat presents you with a standard pick-a-file dialog box.

  2. Choose the file that you want to convert to PDF.

    Acrobat converts the file to PDF and opens it in a new document window.

  3. If you want to save the document on your disk, choose File > Save As.
