How to Save a Flash as a PDF

By LaoA

You may have to save a Flash file in the form of a PDF so that you can send the file via electronic mail or insert it into a big PDF document. However, you do not have the ability to just click a Flash file with your mouse and store it as a document. If you know how to navigate with your online browser or understand the proper keys to press in Flash, you can save a Flash file as a PDF.

Via a Browser

Step 1

Right-click your Flash file. Adjust the settings to the level of "High." Click "Zoom In" and place the image in the location that you desire to change to a PDF.

Step 2

Right-click the image and choose the "Print" function. Print the image with the use of a postscript printer that you can install from Adobe.com (see Resources). Give the file a title and place a .ps at the end of the file. Modify your .ps file to PDF format with the use of Adobe Acrobat.

Step 3

Store the image in PDF format if you have Adobe Photoshop. This enables you to create a document that contains very poor resolution compared to that of a postscript printer.

Via Flash

Step 1

Open the Flash file with which you want to work and adjust it to the frame you plan to save as a PDF.

Step 2

Click "Print." Select the postscript printer you plan to use and proceed to print the file. Title the document and insert .ps at the end of your file.

Step 3

Change your .ps image to a PDF document with Adobe Acrobat.
