Happy Birthday PDF!
Nitro Homepage
Wow. The PDF is turning 20!
1993 was a pivotal year. Jurassic Park sold out theaters across the globe, Beanie Babies were unleashed on an unsuspecting world, and Intel released their very first microprocessor. And yet one of the most vital developments that year flew under most people’s radar: the Portable Document Format, or PDF.
How does PDF work?
It’s a compact file format that gives you a simple way to create and share electronic files. PDF is essentially a photocopy “image” of your original file. Since PDFs are universally compatible and viewable on any computer, organizations, corporations, and individuals can now dependably exchange information.
What can I do with it?
Just about anything! Today, you can edit PDF documents easily and flexibly, convert them to many other applications, and even legally sign them without having to print a paper copy. With its compact footprint, PDF is an ideal tool to transmit electronic files.
