PDF Photo Colalge

We’ll use a real-life example. Any cat lover will tell you that seeing a whole slew of their babies at once is always a good thing. Even if they took every picture and have already seen them a hundred times.

Since it’s a PDF, I knew that they could open it on any device, print it, send it to their friends and everyone would see the same formatting, the same personalized experience.
