Exporting files for use in projects

Saving a document or image file as a PDF will allow it to be viewed by all users on the internet, regardless of the software they have installed. This also allows you to present your work publicly without fear of it being edited by others. For images, regardless of their actual format, it is possible to export them as JPG, PNG, TIFF, or PDF. It is recommended to export images as either PNG or JPEG for them to be immediately visible in your PebblePad projects. For word documents, it is recommended to have them exported as PDF.

The following are the steps for exporting a word document as a PDF, however the process for exporting images as JPEG etc. is identical.

For Windows

To save something as a PDF, open the desired document. Go to File > Save As. When choosing the location of the document on the computer, in the options below you can select the format to save the image in. Open the dropdown and select PDF (you can also select JPEG or PNG if it’s an image file).

When others open a PDF in your project, the document will open in a new tab for them without interfering with their location in your project.

For Mac

Go to File > Export To > PDF. Select the Image Quality (making it higher might cause it to load slower for some users when viewing it) and save it in the desired location.

While you can import images into your projects by using the image block and uploading the desired file, it should be noted that PDFs can’t be uploaded on Portfolio pages; they can only be used for collections, blogs, and logs (not Portfolios or Pages). To upload PDFs in blogs etc., there is a button at the bottom of the page to “Add to your blog”. Pressing it will prompt you to upload a files, such as PDFs.
