Option 1 – Text Link with PDF icon (Standard Method)

  • Links directly to PDF file
  • File is downloaded when user clicks the link
  • File can be saved onto the user’s computer and printed
  • PDF file ensures best quality

Option 2 – PDF Document Viewer

  • File is displayed on screen
  • File cannot be downloaded or printed
  • Limitation: slower to load

Option 3 – JPG Image with ‘click to enlarge’

  • File is displayed on screen
  • File can be downloaded or printed
  • Limitation: Lower image quality due to JPG file-type (compressed)
  • Limitation: all pages must be shown on the screen

Option 4 – JPG Slideshow

  • File is displayed on screen
  • File can be downloaded or printed
  • Lower image quality due to JPG file-type (compressed)
  • Note how much screen space this takes up – and if I make the images any smaller, the text becomes difficult to read.
