Many publishers over the recent years have been abandoning production of their print publications and moving to online or digital magazines instead. The revenue being yielded with this transition is proving favorable. Publishers, readers, audiences and advertisers are happy to embrace new technology and now with the big uptake in mobile and tablet reading magazines are finding they are gaining much wider audiences on these devices through online editions on the web and in apps.
Customize your creations by adding that unique touch: Create custom features throughout your magazine that are tailor made to suit the articles, news stories or advertisements that make up the contents of your publication. These can be thought about prior to the saving of your PDF, so at the design stage you can integrate button shapes, play video images or text relating to a special interactive feature you will add once your PDF has been imported into the magazine maker software. See a blog I wrote recently on creative magazine design to inspire you.
Make it memorable with HTML5 and flash animation: You can allow in the design stage for animations that may auto start in a page turn, features like this can add that something special to the readers experience. See an example of a magazine that incorporates animation into the design of the publication successfully. See our blog describing how to create a HTML5 magazine from your PDF.
