Creating buttons with links

6 replies
Hi Everyone

Just wondering if I could get a quick bit of technical advice. I have a couple of e-books that have been created and was hoping to put some pictures advertising other e-books on the back page with "Get it now" buttons under the pictures. Obviously sending the reader to a web page to sell the books.

My wife who is a graphic designer (no internet experience unfortunately) has created the page in Quark but neither of us have any idea how to make the buttons into links before we convert it to PDF's.

Should we be converting the file to a different program? or just using a more dedicated program to do this. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Regards
Chris

    I do not know about Quark very well otherwise than I know it is a DTP application, but aren't you able to insert links into that?

    The best way I know, according that you want to convert to PDF, is to create the page with MS Word, in which you can link garphics and text, then Acrobat will also create these links in the PDF document while converting.

    Best regards,

      I am not familiar with Quark either.

      However, I know that this could be achieved using Adobe Acrobat, which allows you to modify PDF files to a certain extend.

      You can insert objects such as images using the ToucUp Object Tool. Once you do that you will be able to transform your new image into a link using the Link Tool. These tools can be found under the Tools>Advanced Editing option menu.

      If you do not have Adobe Acrobat I believe you could download a trial version from: Acrobat trial | Get a free trial of Adobe Acrobat Pro

      Hope that helps.
