How to create your own flipbook online

4th November 2015

Are you used to using the PDF format for your digital documents? Have you heard about flipbook software but you’re wondering how complicated it is? It’s entirely natural to be wary of something new. Staying within your comfort zone often seems like a much better option. The problem is that PDF files are becoming outdated. They don’t make best use of the technology we have available.

If you want your digital documents to shine then you need to look at embracing flipbook animation software. There’s no point having great content if no-one reads your documents. Converting to flipbook animation makes your document much more appealing to the reader and helps to maximize the potential audience. Let’s take a look at why flipbook animation is such a good idea and how easy it is to create flipbooks online.

Why should you use flipbook animation software?

The thing with a flipbook is that reading one is similar to reading a traditional book or magazine offline. You turn the pages just the same, except you do so by clicking or swiping instead of actually physically turning them over. This experience of reading a digital document feels far more natural to most people. This means that if you create a flipbook it’s more likely to get noticed straight away. There are other advantages to be had from using flipbook animation software.

  • The links are far less clunky, and more natural, than links in PDF files.
  • You can link to content such as videos and audio files.
  • Sharing is simple, via links.
  • It’s easy for someone reading a flipbook to find the content they are looking for, by using the search facility.
  • Some flipbook software enables the use of bookmarking so that the reader can keep note of content they want to read again.
  • Flipbooks are created to be accessible. This means they work equally as well on mobile as desktop. This often isn’t the case with PDF files.

How should you go about creating a flipbook online?

The great news about creating a flipbook is that it’s really easy to do. You just select the software you want to use to create the flipbook. If you don’t already have a PDF file then create one. Now you’re ready to convert your PDF to a flipbook. It doesn’t take long. In what seems like no time you have a perfectly converted flipbook that’s going to be much more engaging to the reader than just a PDF file.  You get all of the advantages that we have identified and, if you choose the right software, you can do it all for free.

We hope that you can see how you shouldn’t be put off using flipbook animation software just because you’ve never done it before. It’s very easy to get stuck in your ways and opt for what you think is the easy option. The truth is that converting from PDF to flipbook is easy and it’s definitely worthwhile.
