Emerging and Looking for HELP!

I feel like a butterfly that has emerged from its chrysalis...


It has been a hectic few weeks.  State testing, field trips, game day, packing up my classroom, sorting through papers, turning in paperwork... well, you know how I feel.

So, it is time now to get ready for next year. Yes, I am one of those people that are already planning what comes next.  (I know you are too or you wouldn't be reading this.)  Even though I've been teaching for almost 15 years, I find each new year to be an adventure. New kids, new materials, new everything!  It's just exciting to me.

HELP:  I have a question.  I need to be able to lock my documents in the pdf format so that no one can copy the images that I'm adding.  Without buying Adobe Writer, how can I do that???  I've tried and looked at several things, but I know that bloggers have the best ideas and tips!

So, PLEASE, if you know a trick, I NEED IT!!! :)

Now, back to blogstalking... ;)

  1. Do you use powerpoint? There is an option on save as to save it as a pdf.
    Hope this helps,

    1. Yes, I use powerpoint and I can save to pdf, but how do you lock it so that the images/clip art won't be copied by someone? Thanks for the help!

  2. If you use Microsoft Word there is also an option to save as a pdf file in the drop down menu at the bottom of the save as screen. :)
    When I discovered this I felt like the world was mine!!!


    1. Yes, I use Microsoft Word, too and can save to pdf, but I am unable to lock it so that the clip art can't be copied. Any suggestions?? Thanks for the advice. :)

  3. In Microsoft Publisher, or Microsoft word, when you go to file, click save as and on the drop down box (the gray box underneath where you type the name of your file) click that and scroll down to pdf. Then save your file. Remember to save a copy for yourself in word or publisher version first because pdf's can't be altered in those programs. Hope this helps.

  4. Is all this advice going to allow me to watch the Golf Channel, as it always comes up with needing Adobe Flash Player
