    VERTICAL Flip Book Maker?

    Hi all, I am looking for software (free is preferable) that will create a VERTICAL page flip animation of a PDF (like a 12 month wall calendar). So far, everything I have found can only do horizontal page flipping. Any help is appreciated! TIA, pd :-)

    Hi Rande, You mentioned that you use Pitstop. Do you have the 2021 version? If so, Pitstop can do simple printer spread impositions complete with crop marks, color bar, etc.. In your Action List Editor window, type "Impo" in the search field at the top. Hope this helps, pd

    M1 Mac with Monterey

    I have one already (it has Big Sur on it though) and so far, Adobe-wise, things seem to be running well (we only use InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop, and Acrobat). We typically don't design anything. We just take our customer's files and prep them for printing. Best regards, pd

    Native Document Preflight

    Ah ok. Unfortunately, I don't know of any preflight (or other) software that can warn if an image "looks" low-res even when the document resolution is 300. I've had to explain to my customers many times that increasing the resolution of a low-res photo will not improve the look of it.
