Use PDF format to demo Web site

Adobe Acrobat is a great tool for Web design professionals to use to demonstrate a “beta” version of a Web site design for a client. In the past, I encouraged students to show clients the look and feel of a Web site with an image created in PhotoShop. However, Acrobat will convert an entire Web site into a single PDF file which can be clicked through, commented on, and “feels” like a Web site. It is a small file size suitable for email attachment. The client can approve or comment on a design without any HTML being made available, then mail the PDF file back to the designer. While the designer must use the full version of Adobe Acrobat, the client only needs the widely used Acrobat Reader.
