About PDF PDF stands for Portable Document Format. PDF is a graphically oriented file format designed for electronic interchange; it was developed by Adobe Systems Inc. for use with its Acrobat software. PDF preserves the original look of the document almost exactly: fonts, photos, graphics and layout all appear as they do in the original. The PDF format is derived from PostScript, the page description language developed by Adobe, but a PDF file is much smaller than a corresponding PostScript file, so it is more suitable for electronic delivery. Anyone with the right software using Apple Macintosh, Microsoft Windows (3.1, 95, 98, ME, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows 2003, Windows 2008, Windows Vista, Windows 7), Windows NT, and Sun and Hewlett Packard workstations can view any PDF document. In addition, files that are described in Postscript can be printed on any printer that speaks the Postscript language, regardless of what kind of computer is connected to the printer. Likewise, regardless of what type of computer creates a PDF file, it can be viewed on any computer with Adobe Acrobat Reader software. In order to view PDF files, you must use PDF-reading software. And Adobe Acrobat Reader software is free!
