there was this pdf file i wanted to originally take off Safari into my iPad, and the only way to do that seemed to be saving it in iBooks. But after that, is there a way to export the pdf from iBooks to the Photos app directly or indirectly? Any work around appreciated
I had a similar problem with my iPhone. I just opened the pdf in iBooks and took a screenshot (holding down the circular button and the on/off button of my iPhone at the same time). Then the screenshot of the pdf appears in your Photos roll, and you can zoom in and out.
Photos does not appear to be able to open PDF files. But if what you want is to open the PDF in an app that allows you to edit it, there are many.
I've tried Skitch (editing costs extra), but there are plenty.
This list alone has 10 apps that can open PDF's on iOS :
- Adobe Reader
- Foxit Mobile PDF
- PDF Reader
- Google Play Books
- Mantano Reader Premium
- PDF Expert
- PDFpen 2
I haven't tried all of them, some are free, some paid, and some have editing capabilities, if you provide more information on what exactly is your situation, the software recommendation could be better.
You can email the pdf to yourself. Then access the document from your email. This is how I work around the problem.
