What we’ve done
We updated Flash Magazine Deluxe with the MultiUpload tool to help you save your time and turn your PDF magazines into a real Adobe Flash based page-flipping magazine in minutes. Just convert PDF into images and create a magazine from a package with images. No programming tricks needed!
See the brief instructions:
- Convert PDF to Images
Use some free or paid soft for converting. We tested tool 123PDF to Image for Windows. It’s really easy to use.
- Upload images
Images may be uploaded to any folder of your site relative to Joomla! root directory or arranged as a package of images. Please note that your server should allow uploading files of big size in case you use the package method.
- Create a magazine and configure its look&feel
- Create pages using the MultiUpload feature
Why we didn’t develop all-in-one solution
- We could create a script to work on all kind of servers. We didn’t do it, though, to avoid additional bugs and be sure that users will get what they expect
- Too many of Joomla! extensions have more options than you need. We decided to avoid over-loading Flash Magazine Deluxe leaving it simple and usable
