How to Convert .pages to .pdf

Apple's Pages desktop publishing software create files with the .pages file extension. These files cannot be opened outside of the Pages program, so if you want to share the files with someone else and they don't have the program, you must convert the file into something that can be opened on other computers. The Portable Document Format, or PDF, was created by Adobe because it can be shared easily -- and shared across computer system platforms. Pages files can be converted into PDFs.
