    How can I make a PDF document with multiple pages. I have Adobe Photoshop and I can make a single page PDF from there, but I know there is a better way? Do I purchase Adobe Acrobat?

    look for open source free tools to create full pdf pages.

    otherwise you can use PDFTK to merge multiple pdf pages (the single pages that you can make)

    Do you know if this software is as good as Adobe Acrobat Standard?

    Adobe Acrobat has many features that aren't found in freeware PDF generators. What kind of software you need depends on what you want to do with PDFs. The freeware applications usually create PDFs from existing documents by installing a virtual printer. Beyond simple PDF generation, there's not much else they can do.

    Anything that can be printed .. can be converted to a pdf.
    Will this work for your Application ?

    FYI ...
    According to Gizmo's best freeware site .. pdfcreator is the best.
    http://sourceforge.net/projects/pdfcreator/

    I had some problems with hyperlinks using Cutepdf .. and have switched to pdfCreator.

    The advantage of using Photoshop .. the pdf (Image) can be edited as a "raster image" ... then saved back as a pdf.
    But this will not be the same as the original pdf ... i.e... the pdf file size will usually be much larger after Photoshopping it.
