How many times have you tried to create a beautiful document to send your clients and realized that you had no idea how to put it together? You can export from Photoshop into a PDF just fine, but then what? Nothing says “unprofessional” like sending multiple documents in an attached email.
There use to be a program I would recommend anytime anyone asked. Until they became a totally different type of company and it was no longer freeware.
Now? Now I have an even better option. It’s a program you probably even already have installed on your computer!
You want to know my secret?
That little program (Adobe Bridge) installs whenever you install any Adobe program. It’s amazing and has so many unused features!
I found this hint out this week and it has CHANGED MY WORLD.
You are able to merge single PDF documents into one big PDF book! Just think of how you can do this for your pricing guide, your products, even an album for your clients to proof.
And here’s how you do it.
First, you want to open up the documents that you want to combine into a single one in Bridge.
The magic is in the “Output” option.
It has a variety of choices. The biggest thing you want to make sure you do is select the files you want combined, the only ones that will be combined will be the ones that are selected.
Make sure to go through the settings and get them exactly how you want it to be set up. Changing the page size, overlays, headers, etc….it’s all there for you to tweak to fit your document for exactly how you want it to be.
Save the document and BAM! You have a beautiful PDF document combined and created and ready to send out to your expectant clients.
When was the last time you used Adobe Bridge? Do you even know everything that it can do? If you are interested, I’d love to introduce you to more awesomeness in this program.
