And then there is this: An edex session on creating PDF portfolios at the end of this month.

Building PDF Portfolios to share student work

This session will explore how students can create their own portfolios of work using Adobe Acrobat. Students can upload all types of files including images, videos, word processing etc as well as include links to blogs and wikis. They can then customise and personalise the PDF. Once complete it can be emailed, stored on a USB or uploaded to Google Drive.

Hi Poonam,

I think a lot depends on what you want the end result to look like. A PDF portfolio can be created simply by using Acrobat Pro and combine files function. This can work if you already have images of the projects you want to include in the portfolio.

If you want to have precise control over the layout and design of the pages in your portfolio I think you will need a combination of Photoshop, Illustrator and Indesign. You would use Photoshop to prepare the images of your projects. Indesign would be the central application in which you create the layout in which you place the images and then add text to each project. Indesign can then export it to a PDF.

There are a lot of ways to create a PDF portfolio, the road to follow depends on what you want the end result to be so a little more information about your desired result could be helpful. Once we know more I think me and others here can point you in the direction of some useful tutorials on Adobe's website or other websites.
