Converting Images and Other Files to PDF

Acrobat X 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; you just open the file in Acrobat.

To convert a file to PDF:

  1. In the Quick Tools toolbar, click the Create button and choose PDF from File in the drop-down menu circle-a.jpg.

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

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

    This can be an image file, a Word document, or any other file type that Acrobat knows how to convert.

    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.
