Think of a PDF as a wrapper: it holds together the text, graphics, photos, fonts and other items that make up your source document, and wraps them up into one convenient PDF file that you can send to commercial print shops for printing, or upload to your website, or send to a client for approval.
This second article in the series looks under the hood of PDFs and outlines the best practices for creating source documents and PDFs for your particular purpose—press-quality, print-quality, and web-quality PDFs.
