It's not difficult to create PDFs, and you don't need expensive software either! In this course we look at how to create great PDFs using the software on your computer, free third party software, and how to select (and set-up) a great scanner to make the best PDFs!

You should take this course if you want to create great PDFs or if you want to convert existing files to great PDFs. You should also take this course if you're not sure how to pick the right scanner, and to learn how to make the most of your scanner settings.

About the Instructor

Hi, I'm Gerard. I've been fully paperless for almost four years now, and that's no mean feat. I'm a litigation lawyer and work with tens of thousands of documents every year, without using any paper. That includes attending court, arguing cases, and cross-examining witnesses. No paper. At home we're paperless too. I set up the Paperless Academy to share my knowledge and experience with you, so come and join me on a course!

This course is closed for enrollment.
