PDF Tools AG has announced the release of new product 3-Heights PDF Validator and the PDF/A compliance of its 3-Heights Image to PDF Converter. The PDF Validator verifies whether PDF documents conform to a specific version of PDF or to the new international standard for long-term electronic archiving: PDF/A.
The 3-Heights Image to PDF Converter, on the other hand, is designed to convert common image formats into PDF/A-compliant PDF documents. This makes the Converter a valuable tool for the migration of traditional TIFF (or other image format) archives into PDF/A archives.
What is PDF/A? Here is an excerpt from the original press release from PDF Tools AG:
"In September 2005, the International Standards Organisation (ISO) approved a new format for long-term archiving of electronic documents. This format - PDF/A - is based on the Adobe PDF Reference 1.4 and is designed to guarantee that electronically stored documents are retrievable and reproducible for the long-term."
OK, so you want to stamp your document. Maybe you need to give reviewers some advice about the document's status or sensitivity. This tip from author Ted Padova demonstrates how to add stamps with the Stamp Tool along with related comments.
