VIDEO TUTORIAL WORKING WITH COLLAGE SHEETS THAT ARE IN A PDF FORMAT

In this tutorial I demonstrate how to resize PDF formatted collage sheets, how to cut and paste individual images from the collage sheets and how to resize individual images.  PDF formatted files are a standard for Electronic Document Exchange invented by ADOBE.  If you purchase digital Collage Sheets from Alpha Stamps, the sheets are in this format.  

The best part is that I'll show you how to use software that you already have or that is free and you don't need graphics software.

I SUGGEST WATCHING THE VIDEO IN FULL SCREEN MODE TO SEE IT PROPERLY
Make sure that you have the latest version of the Adobe Acrobat Reader as they upgrade the features on a regular basis.  The Adobe Reader software is free.  Here is the link:  http://www.downloadtastic.com/pdf-reader/
