Building a Slideshow Presentation with Picture Tasks

Chapter Description

Suppose you need to present a series of photographs to a committee that will decide which one belongs in a company brochure. Or imagine that you are preparing a collection of shots, one of which will appear in a newspaper ad. How can you present the selection of possibilities to a client in a way that is both professional and interesting? Acrobat 7 includes a plug-in called Picture Tasks that allows you to easily manage a group of images and prepare different types of output, including a slideshow and various print options. In this chapter's project, you'll learn how to use the plug-in to create a slideshow and customize it, as well as to send the final product automatically by e-mail from within Acrobat.

Sending the Presentation

The last step in the process is sending the PDF presentation. Again, Susan can work entirely in Acrobat—she doesn't have to open her e-mail program and search through her computer to find the presentation file.

Follow these steps to send the presentation:

  1. Choose File > Email. An e-mail dialog opens, with the presentation attached ( Figure 3.17 ).

    Figure 3.17 Use Acrobat's commands to automatically attach the presentation to an e-mail message.

  2. Type the recipient's name in the To field or click To and choose the recipient's name from the address list.
  3. Click Send to close the dialog and send the presentation on its way. It's that quick!
