Printing Tips for Our PDFs
Before printing your PDF, insure 1/4" borders by looking for the "Page Scaling" option (in the Adobe Reader print settings) and choosing "none". Otherwise the default ("fit to printable area") seems to mean 1/2" whether your printer will handle smaller borders or not. We also recommend Check (yes) for "Auto Rotate and Center."
Downloading Tips for Non-Techies
The easiest way we've found for downloading a graphic is, when viewing in your browser, simply right-click on the graphic, click on "Save Picture as," give the image a name if one isn't automatically suggested, and notice which folder you save it too (ie: "C:\My Documents"). Note: Most (non-tech) Windows people will find most everything they've saved in the "My Documents" folder. Generally the (picture) file will be saved as "jpg" or "gif"- when in doubt, choose "jpg" -- unless, of course, you are downloading a "pdf."
Did you know that you can also right-click on the links to files and pages and then click "save as..." to download a file? However, when saving web pages this way you don't get the pictures on them, just the text. Otherwise, for Downloading, this makes things much easier than most other ways. AND if you print out some pages with large graphics, you may get the graphic files split out over two pages. Which is often just fine, but the notes below are mainly for printing out the graphic files individually.
