Tutorial Series – Easy PDF Annotation

By Patrick Sesko

Make Your Proofing and Editing Process a Breeze!

Here is a tutorial I created of how to make annotations in a PDF file. This is useful for people who manage design projects and prefer not to print a copy of a proof out and hand write edits and either fax back to designer or in some cases, sit on the phone and go over the edits live. I’ve done that before and it is time consuming. This tutorial will teach you how to simply note your edits directly in the PDF and this creates a clear and concise “paper trail” of edits, so there is no question what the edits are, and if they have been made or not. Using this function will save time both for clients and designers.

I have included the exercise file below for you to take a look at as well as a link to download a free version of Acrobat Reader.

If you have any questions, please leave a comment and I will respond or you can email me at
