You can download PrimoPDF for free. It’s great!

It depends on what version of powerpoint you have: on the newest versions (the ones that save files as ‘.pptx’ and look all sleek and spiffy), you can just go to “Save As”, and there’s a clear option to save as “PDF or XPS”. The default is to save as a .pdf, so you just choose the filename and you’re good to go. 

The older versions of powerpoint are a wee bit trickier. I’m cheap, so use a free pdf-making program (I use the free version of CutePDF, or you can google for others). These programs basically just simulate a printer, but instead of printing to a regular ink-jet, they print to a .pdf file, and you choose the name and place to save. So once you have the program downloaded, you go to Print (not the quick-button with the printer icon, but the Print option under File that gets you all the choices). You then choose to print to the CutePDF printer (as opposed to your regular ones), and you’re good to go. I think instructions are on the CutePDF webpage – just google and it should come up.

Hope that helps!

I have a similar question…I am trying to do my own guestbook pages and I have googled several templates as well as several on here.  They are all in .doc though and for some reason I can’t open them to change them to fit me and my needs. I have windows vista. A friend of mine gave me a cd for MSWord11, I installed it and can download .doc files from my school website and what not, but templates absolutely will not open.  What do I do?????

Depends what version of Adobe you have. If you have a fuller version, you can either “Save as” pdf or “Print” and choose pdf. Or, you can download Cute PDF and print, choose “Cute pdf” as your printer, and then save it.
