PDF software rec?
« on: June 22, 2013, 12:11:09 PM »

I am looking for cheap/free software to create PDFs. It will be used primarily to "print" from LR and QImage. Thx.

If you're on a Mac, it's built into the OS. Anything you can print, you can save as a PDF.

Hi Peter,

Do you mean print from LR/Qimage to a PDF file? I haven't tried to do specifically that but I've used the free PrimoPDF for a long time to print to on my Windows machines, and it can be used as a print destination instead of a printer.

Cheers,
Bart

PrimoPDF + 1.
That said, you can't, as far as I can see, add crop marks to the file. You need to include them in the originating application.
