Book: 'Acrobat 6: Professional Results' by Carl Young

April 21, 2004


Last year when we spoke with Carl Young of DigiPub Solutions for an article on the history of the PDF Conference that he launched four years ago, he said: "Once people start learning how to use Acrobat, they just can't seem to get enough of it. They keep finding more and more things to do with it." The now-popular conference, next slated for September 13-14 in Baltimore, has become one of the best opportunities for continuing education on Acrobat and PDF from a variety of global experts.

Carl Young Acrobat 6 bookWith the coming release of his first book "Adobe Acrobat 6: Getting Professional Results from Your PDFs," Young has contributed yet another educational resource to help beginning and advanced users advance their skills.
