Adobe Reader 9 was released at the beginning of July, and now, just a few weeks later, we’re seeing PDF Portfolios on the Web. PDF Portfolios allow the content creator to wrap the information in customized PDF Portfolio template that leverages the Flash Player runtime which is part of Acrobat & Adobe Reader 9. To best view these portfolios, I recommend using Adobe Reader 9 or Acrobat 9. You can download Adobe Reader 9 or a trial of Acrobat 9 for viewing.
For example BNET posted today 4 PDF Portfolios in their Business Library section:
a. BNET Energy: The Green Enterprise
b. BNET BookBriefs: Own Your Job, Don’t Let It Own You
c. BNET BookBriefs: Make Your Business Stand Out From the Crowd
d. BNET Best Practices to Managing Employees
And I was alerted to 2 more from Nikkei Business Publications (both in Japanese):
An example of an on-line magazine with examples of embedded 3D, images, and multimedia and tips for How to Conduct Effective Presentations
I hope you enjoy these great examples of what you can do with PDF Portfolios. If you know of some PDF Portfolios on the Web – let me know!
