PDF-ing & all that jazz

This post is for you lovely peeps who’d like to know how to turn a wordy-type file into something you could put into a WordPress blog post for readers to download at home. Like maybe a recipe . . . 😉

Mind you obey your country’s copyright laws!

Always preview your post to be certain it looks the way you want it to look. Sometimes it might be better to use the PDF version, depending on the reason you’re including it. (Been there, done that. 🙄)

I can speak only as an Apple ios user, but will give what I hope are generic clues for all the MS bloggers, too. 😉

All best wishes to both!

Going from document to Photo format:

The easiest thing to do is type up your recipe (or whatever), print it out, and take a photo of it. Photo-to-WP you already know!
*********************

Apple’s word processing program, Pages, has the option File/Export to/ and PDF is the first on the list.
Easy peasy!

(MS Word should have the same option, also under File.
Ages ago it used to be File/Save as/.
PDF was one of the choices. Just hunt it down.)
*********************

Getting from PDF to JPEG/JPG:

Using Apple’s PDF program Preview, open the PDF file you want to convert to JPEG.
Then go to File/Export as…/
And you get a popup window.
In that window, rename the file if you want, decide where you want the file to reside, then choose the Format. JPEG, PNG, and TIFF are some of the choices. You’re done!

(MS Word may still have a similar process, using their current standard PDF reader program.)

Hope this helps, Lovelies!
