    Whats up.

    I am in desperate need today to convert some files into PDF format. However, my photoshop or illustrator can't convert the files into pdf, its not even an option anywhere! I tried to export it, i even tried to print it.

    Am i missing something? What program do i need to convert? All I have is photoshop and illustrator.

    PLEASE...some1 reply asap. Thanks!

    When you select Print and get the print window, there should be a button in the bottom left of that window labeled PDF. Which allows you to save as PDF.

    Illustrator has a PDF as an option under Save As... (theres a drop down list that includes EPS, Illustrator Format and PDF)

    IIRC Photoshop does too

    If you Print the file, the OSX Print dialog box has a PDF button

    You don't need any separate program.

    Unless your installation is really messed up, you should have multiple ways to save to PDF.

    What kind of TIFF is it?

    Save as>Photoshop PDF has been in Photoshop since at least Photoshop 7.

    The options are at the bottom of the save dialogue box.

    Gone but not forgotten.
    Preview will also convert most formats to other formats, including PDF.
