We show you the easiest and freeways you have to be able to write or draw in a PDF document, either to add your signature, mark notes, or work as a team on the same document.
Regardless of whether you are using an iPad or tablet , Windows PC, or Mac, we are going to show you the simplest ways you have so that you or your children can write or draw in a PDF document helped by free programs and software .
Conventional PDF reader programs do not make it easy to draw or write freehand on documents. Many, including Adobe’s Acrobat Reader, make it easy to highlight text or add your signature. Others will allow you to edit the document.
But sometimes, all you want is, for example, to draw in some areas of the document, either because you want to highlight some aspect, or because your children are doing their homework on their digital book.
So, we show you ways to convert your PDF documents into a form that you can easily edit. Many of them are based on the same essential principle: turn the PDF document into one or more images that you can later draw or write on.
In this article, we wanted to select completely free applications, but if you have a software or license for Photoshop, Acrobat, or a mobile application like Procreate, it is also easy to use.
We will start with the method used for iPad before moving on to another type of tablet or Windows and Mac computers.
Draw or write with your iPad in a PDF
The first step is to convert your PDF into an image or series of images. If your PDF is a single page, the easiest way to do it is to take a screenshot. To do this, simply press the top button and the home button, if your iPad has one, or the ‘Volume Up’ button if it doesn’t (like on the latest iPad Pro models).
If your PDF has multiple pages, it is probably easier to go through each page and take a screenshot.
It is also possible to use a site like pdf2jpg.net to convert your PDFs to JPG format, but you will have to download each JPEG by hand or download a ZIP file, and using ZIP files on iOS is painful as you cannot extract all files from just one time.
Once you have your images stored on a disk, you will need an art application. We recommend Autodesk Sketchbook as it’s free, has a great set of tools, and just as importantly it’s easy for adults and kids to use.
With it, it is possible to add notes to a document or letters or numbers to a worksheet. And if you want to be more artistic, Sketch has a great set of art tools for creating visual effects.
Draw or write with your tablet in a PDF
The workflow will be the same as with an iPad: Screenshot of each page (see how to do it depending on the model), then use the free Autodesk Sketchbook application for Android and be able to draw or write on the images.
If you are using an Amazon Fire tablet, you will need to use a different application, as Autodesk does not have a version of Sketch for that platform. Instead, an app like ArtFlow is good enough to be able to pull it off.
Draw or write with a Mac or PC on a PDF
The easiest way to achieve what you want if you are using a Mac or PC is to use Adobe Photoshop, as you can open PDF files directly in that application, choose which pages you want, or even open all of them as different layers or documents.
Now, Photoshop will cost you about € 10 per month after a 30-day trial. The subscription also includes the iPad version of Photoshop, but this cannot open PDF files.
Instead, as with iPads and tablets, the screen capture process can be your best way to create images that you can then draw on with the help of an art application like the ones we have seen above.
If you have a PDF with a multitude of pages, you can convert it for free into successive JPEG files with the help of the pdf2jpg.net tool. Once you have your screenshots, you will need an art app to write or draw on it.
Once again, the free Autodesk Sketchbook application in its version for macOS or Windows will be your best ally to finish your work or take notes.
Google Threatens to Stop Its Search Engine Service in Australia, Why
Google has just announced that it is threatening the Australian government to stop its search engine services or search engines.
This was done by Google because it did not agree with new laws that have been issued by the Australian government where Google must pay news publishers for content displayed on Google Search.
Apart from Google, other technology companies such as Facebook are also entering and must comply with the new regulations. Then Google was the first and said that it did not agree.
“If this rule becomes law, we will have no choice but to stop Google Search services in Australia,” said Vice President of Google Australia and New Zealand, Meg Silva quoted from The Verge.
It states that Google was forced to decide this because they had no other choice and they also didn’t want to spend a lot of money just to comply with regulations in one country.
“It will bring things that we cannot sustain for this business, the digital economy, and do not fit the way search engines work,” Google continued.
Actually, Google has announced a program to pay a number of news publishers in Australia, Germany, and Brazil, but the Australian government thinks that this is still not enough so they make this law.
WhatsApp is increasingly anxious to be left by the user, now advertises in newspapers
India, which is one of the largest WhatsApp user countries in the world, is busy deleting WhatsApp and switching to rival applications such as Signal and Telegram.
Most recently, WhatsApp has advertised in newspapers to convince its users that they care about user privacy.
WhatsApp spent a lot of money to advertise in 10 newspapers that speak English and Hindi.
“WhatsApp respects and protects your privacy. Respect for your privacy is embedded in our DNA” reads the WhatsApp ad.
WhatsApp has clarified that its data-sharing policy with Facebook does not affect the privacy of messages sent by users.
Encryption continues and WhatsApp until Facebook can’t read the messages sent. WhatsApp’s actions to advertise are actually quite reasonable.
Facebook has an estimated $5.7 billion investment in India so there is no way they will let it drift for nothing.
Such an investment is aimed at boosting digital transactions for MSMEs in India. WhatsApp has also received government permission to launch WhatsApp Pay.
Microsoft Increases Download Limits on OneDrive, Teams, and SharePoint
Working from home ( work from home, WFH) continued to require workers to do their jobs remotely. Included in sending important documents. Not infrequently, what is sent is a video or large file.
Of course, large project files such as 4K and 8K videos, CAD files, and other large data often become obstacles to sharing in the cloud.
In response to this, Microsoft will increase the file upload limit from 100GB to 250GB. These upload limits will apply to OneDrive, Teams, and SharePoint.
In addition, this upload limit is also available to personal OneDrive users. Reportedly, this feature will be available at the end of January 2021.
Microsoft in a written statement said to continue to strive to support workers around the world. He said he accepted all feedback given by customers.
“We always try to innovate and empower our users to be more productive,” wrote Microsoft employee Ankita, Saturday (16/1/2021).
Optimize for Azure
He added that each file is divided into several parts and each part is encrypted with a unique key, to keep the file safe.
All files will be backed up in Azure storage to make it easier for users to upload and download anywhere.
Previously, Microsoft had increased the upload limit from 15GB to 100GB in July 2020.
Microsoft Teams Will Compete with Browsers
Microsoft CEO, Satya Nadella, said Microsoft Teams will be as important as internet browsers and operating systems. This means that Teams will be a service that is prioritized by their users.
This statement came after Nadella highlighted the growth of Teams over the last few years.
According to company data, there were a surge of inactive users from 13 million users in July 2019 to 115 million users in September 2020.
Quoting UCToday , Thursday (13/1/2021), he added that Teams has turned into a communication tool as well as an organizing layer because it acts as a hub for other Microsoft services.
This is what makes Teams a platform that is expected to compete with internet browsers and operating systems.
