How to Convert a PDF to a Flash Flip Book

Flash flip books create a sleek-looking effect. They give a book-like appearance, and you feel like you are flipping through a book on your computer. A Flash flip book is also useful for magazine or catalog type sites. If you have a completed project, such as an entire catalog, you can easily change versions of your PDF pages into an SWF and link it to your Flash page flip book.
