Overview
Status: Available | Released: Apr 8th, 2011
In your day to day work with your Mac computer, you're going to open and edit a lot of PDFs, JPGs, PNGs, and other graphics files. Preview is the software application you'll use to accomplish these tasks, and many more.

This tutorial begins with a detailed overview of the tools you'll use to edit and modify images and other files in Preview. You'll learn how to use the Move and Select tools, the Text tools, the Lasso, and the Instant Alpha tools.

Next, you'll move on to discover how easy it is to annotate text and PDF files with preview. You'll learn how to use the Strike Through and Highlight tools, and also the Underline tool. Preview also provides a Side Bar you can use to navigate through your annotations, and you'll learn all the tricks you need to get the most out of this time-saving feature.

With a solid text treatment under your belt, you'll next learn how to edit images by rotating, cropping, and color shifting graphics files. You'll even discover how easy it is to resample images, and transcode from one image format to another.

PDFs are a big part of Preview, and you don't need Adobe Acrobat Reader to edit these files - Preview provides a perfect alternative! You'll learn how to create multi-page PDFs, add images to PDF files, and even how to password protect a PDF so other people can't edit or change files for certain security purposes.

This is a comprehensive tutorial, but you don't have to watch the entire show. Use the detailed menus and keyword search functions to quickly find topics of interest ... that's the essence of NonLinear Educating!
