Portable Document File (PDF)

Popular Terms
A file format, created by Adobe Systems, typically used for saving documents that are comprised of more than a simple text element. PDFs allow for incorporation of images, graphs, hyperlinks, and other features. Benefits of PDF files are that they are compatible with many different systems, they are high quality and therefore often used in professional situations (such as business documents or resumes), and the files themselves are small and compact which makes them easy to store and send to others. Abbreviated PDF.
