Due to many requests to explain how to work with PDF patterns.....I thought to post this for everyone to read.
Adobe reader is available HERE for easy and quick download. It opens all your PDF tutorials and other files that you may purchase from etsy and anywhere else.
Anyone who is a seller may post this on their blog as well!
Quick run-down on what a PDF is:
PDF (Portable Document Format) is a file format developed by Adobe as a means of distributing compact, platform-independent documents. It is superficially similar to HTML; a PDF document may contain images and text, as well as hyperlinks. However, as PDF is based on a variant of PostScript, each document is self-contained, packing text, graphics, and fonts into a single file.
You can use Adobe Acrobat to create PDF files, and you can view PDF files either with Adobe Reader or via a web browser with the PDF Viewer plug-in.
