    Maybe it's a weird Photoshop q, but...

    I have two files...

    I'm going to make them pdf's with some sort of pdf-creator that I have...

    I want to make them so that one of the files becomes the first and the other the second in the pdf. That way it will become the front and back of the printed document.

    Is it possible to do this in PS, or do I have to do it otherwise? I don't have Acrobat on this machine, but if I get access to it, can I join the two files?

    yes, in acrobat you have the option to insert a new page or set of pages...can't remember the exact menu item though (don't have acrobat installed on this machine right now)

    Thanks... But it's not "doable" in PS I suppose?

    Not possible within PhotoShop, or most any similar product. To do what you need, you need a multi-page editing program, and I don't think any of the major image editors do that.

    If you're doing something for printing, then it would be better to be using a program designed for page layout rather than an image editor. A photo editing program is fine for editing & touching up images, but layout and such really should be done in something more suited to it, PageMaker or maybe Illustrator, if Illustrator can handle multi-page documents now.

    SIDENOTE: A lot of Vector programs have a "multi-page" layout option.

    My suggestion would have you use Adobe Indesign for this situation. However, that may not be a realistic suggestion in your case.

    Illustrator has yet to allow for multiple page layouts. My first choice for doing PDF documents when thry are going to print, now, is InDesign 2. Before I just wrote a postscript and used Distiller. If you already have the 2 PDF's then putting it together in Acrobat is the best option.

    It's STILL lacking that capability? Glad I decided to stay in Corel's camp. That's one of the big things I like about CorelDRAW, it may not be the BEST document creation app, but it's robust enough to do pretty good, especially if you're good with it. Add to that that CorelDRAW is a suite that costs less than any 1 Adobe app, and it looks even better.

    Technically, it doesn't, no, but you can get around that by setting your artboard size to be the size of 2 sheets )ir 3 or 4, etc.) and setting up the print options to print tiled pages.

    It's a bit more of a pain, but it works at least. I've crteated several multi-page PDF files that way, by sending it through distiller once the document's done.
