Making a profit is a major goal for most creative workflows that produce Adobe InDesign documents. PDF2DTP is a simple way to speed up the process to convert PDF to InDesign, to help your organization get a high return on investment.

PDF2DTP has so far worked very well for us – we are a commercial printer with graphics dept and a lot of the “print ready” PDFs we receive are far from print ready. This application lets us break into the file, convert colours, add bleed, correct typos and resize pages etc. What I also find a very useful tool is that I can remove and change cropping of images by turning off the clipping path from within the Object/Clipping Path/Options menu InDesign. The ability to then open links into Photoshop and lighten/brighten images is also a great help. It’s often much easier and quicker to do this than to send the file back to a customer who may not understand print processes.”
