It’s tough to imagine information sharing in the digital age without the use of the PDF file, which is true to its full name – the portable document format. Few other tools have made it so easy for people to communicate and conduct business thanks to its true cross compatibility, giving users the ability to generate PDF files from multiple native formats and access them using just about any platform.

Now, Adobe Acrobat X is taking information sharing to new heights by including all the capabilities Adobe Acrobat has always offered, and adding a revolutionary new feature called PDF Portfolio.

Through this new Adobe Acrobat X feature, users will have a powerful set of tools to create, compile, and access information originating from a variety of source documents, whether by conversion or direct scanning. Think of the software’s new PDF Portfolio feature as a way to organize and present numerous files and attachments without the digital clutter. Combine files that follow a common theme from multiple applications such as video, audio, articles, and graphics, and link them together in a single Portfolio. You can then use the program’s customization options to add a unified layout or your company’s branding.

Take a look at VentureBeat’s portfolio, Local Heroes: VentureBeat Checks in with Location Visionaries, accessible as a PDF Portfolio complete with articles and images in a theme that emulates the VentureBeat site’s own design. The best part? While it takes Adobe Acrobat X to create Portfolios, they can be opened with the free Adobe Reader, making them accessible to an even wider audience.
