Adobe MAX 2010: Acrobat X Test Drive Lab

At Adobe MAX 2010, the Acrobat team hosted a 25-seat ‘test drive lab’ where attendees could sit down and try Acrobat X.

Well… now that Acrobat X is officially available – you can also test drive it. Just download the trial version of Acrobat X Pro, the instruction booklet, and the sample files, and then…. ‘start your engines‘.

I’v created a recording – available as a PDF file you can download (it’s big – about 172MB) where I review the content, so feel free to follow along with me.

    Hi Lori,

    I attended the Test Drive at MAX (multiple times, actually), and really enjoyed it! Thanks for making the full presentation available here!!

    I wanted to ask you a question about section 5, if you don’t mind. I was wondering if there was a nice, neat way to convert/compress/optimize scanned documents that were originally saved in PDF format the way you do with a TIFF file.

    I have a million scanned documents that are all HUGE files taking up massive amounts of space on my machine. I need to find a way to reduce the file size without losing the image quality (I don’t need to print anything in poster size, but I do need to be able to still read it, which seems to be an issue using the old Optimize feature.

    If you can give me any advise, I would greatly appreciate it!

    …I’m the (goofy) first interviewee in the Adobe TV video on Acrobat from MAX. 🙂

    Thank you, in advance, for your time!

    [[I would try Tools > Document Processing > Optimize Scanned PDF. That should give you the best results without damaging the quality – lori]]
