I have made my CV using Photoshop CS5.1 (3 separate files) and need to convert it to a single PDF file. I've done it before using a free download but can't remember what it was...does anybody know? Or is there another way this can be done?
You can do it in photoshop.
From the top menu ( doesn't exist in cs6 anymore ): File > Automate > PDF Presentation..
In the PDF Presentation window:
- Select the files you want to convert to pdf.
- Select Multi-Page Document.
- Click Save button.
..and then the Save abobe PDF window comes up, where you can define the pdf settings and then save it.
If it is not that obvious, every separate file will be put in their own pages in the pdf document.
Another way to do this would be in Adobe Acrobat Pro.
To combine multiple files into one pdf in Acrobat Pro: File > Combine > Merge files into single pdf
( You can also change page locations, delete pages, add pages etc... )
In OSX, you can do this with Preview.app. Open one PDF, drag another into the thumbnails panel to add additional PDF files. (FWIW, PhotoShop isn't the right tool for creating a resume)
Here is a video which will show the steps that how can combine the multiple
The way is easy to use and support with all MS windows 8 and above versions.
You can simply use Adobe Acrobat Pro that comes with the Adobe Suite/Cloud, and "insert" your pages in one document.
To insert each pages, open your first PDF file, and then use these keys at the same time:
Command + Shift + I
A window will open and you can select all your files you want to insert.
You can also change the order of these pages by opening the "page thumbnail" panel on your left, and simply drag them where you want them. If you right-click there you will see other options, including inserting pages exactly where you want, between 2 other pages for example.
If you need to lower the file size of your PDF after doing this, you can have a look here.
