    How to create Downloadble PDF graphic on my blog?

    I am NOT web savvy, but have been able somehow to pull off a pretty successful blog for sometime with a great amount of traffic. I would love to add free downloadble PDF graphics for readers to print. I've seen other bloggers offer this.

    Is there an easy way to do this or am I going to have to learn code? Thanks for your help.

    BTW, I work in Adobe Illustrator 10 to create the graphics.

    well as far as i know you can export the same from Adobe Illustrator to PDF
    and if that is not possible then you can look for acrobat professional. it installs a virtual printer to your computer and when you say print, even in illustrator, you can select the pdf printer and get the desired output.
    this is how acrobat professional work. if you can get that well and good or else you have to find a free or shareware solution of the same kind.

    Of course, after you generate the pdf graphic, you will need to upload it to your server. You might want to create a special directory for your pdf downloads rather than put them in your blogs image files.

    Generate the pdf graphics and upload to your server. IF you are using free blogs like blogspot means u must upload to rapidshare

    Thanks everyone.

    I know how to create a PDF from my file. And I have figured out the file hosing service. But there are blogs that have free PDF downloads at the click of a link, straight to download, not straight to a hosting site to get the download. That's what I'm looking for: Click on the link in my blog post and the file is instantly ready to download, no other site re-direct.

    I blog through blogspot. Any more help is greatly appreciated.

    Are those other blogs also on blogspot? If they have real website hosting they can upload the files directly to their site. You might consider opening a cheap web hosting account somewhere just to host your files if it's worth it to you for that user experience.

    hey why don't you try to store them on google doc. and then share them, just give that a try. you will get ample of space. but i am not sure if that can be share with public.

    I would just show them on the blog and then have a thing underneath each picture sayin download here then just have it as a zip file. Thats what I normally do for things
