PDF File Conversion FAQ
Acrobat pdf files have FOUR flavors, three of which can be read by the
We need to know which flavor your need. The cost, file size and
appearance are all different. Choose the one which best fits your need:
- Image+Hidden text- The viewer will SEE the

the converted (hidden) text. The search term will be highlighted as
a box around the raster text.
- Image Only- this is as if we just scanned the pages and
combined them into a file. These are not searchable, there are only
"pictures" of the exact pages.

converting to a text format and then going into PDF.
