PDFs are a double-edged sword. On one hand, even the most tech-averse can easily open and print them out without screwing anything up, making them the quintessential format for sharing documents.

PDF Expert lets you edit text, images, hyperlinks, and more natively inside PDFs. Unlike most PDF viewers like Preview, Adobe Reader, and the one in your browser, PDF Expert can merge multiple documents into a single file to free your colleagues from email attachment hell. It’s also perfect for adding inline annotations and filling out digital forms, so you can save trees without sacrificing the convenience of paper.
Additionally, PDF expert makes it easy to extract embedded media from documents, so you don’t need to rely on awkward screenshots to save images and logo files. You can get PDF Expert 2.0 for Mac for 50% off the usual price—just $29.99.

As a youngster, he’d be constantly tearing down and building computers, even in the sweltering heat of summer. But now… …All of that tinkering and […]
