PDFs are files created for a precise look and at a quality suited to professional printing. They are read-only and unalterable by the viewer. They contain specialty fonts, photographs, and advanced formatting within a single file, making them ideal for creating and transmitting newsletters, brochures, and other files where you want to ensure your exact design will be printed on the physical page. You can create PDFs in a variety of programs, from Adobe Acrobat and Adobe Pagemaker to simple Microsoft Word. However, PDFs are very large files that can only be read with a PDF program. When trying to view PDFs online, people with slower connections often experience extremely long load times. If a single-page file is not going to be commercially printed, I prefer to use a compressed JPG or HTML formatting appropriate for the web. Using web-appropriate file types ensures that a casual viewer will see your message easily. The exception to the rules are files with are intended to be printed and longer newsletters.
