Question:I need to find or develop an app that will load in a PDF file from the web, allow a user to make simple annotations and save these annotations back to a web server.I'm currently using some annotator with the PDF rendered to a .jpg. Just now, I was told that they need the ability to zoom in to 3000% or more on some files. clearly rendering to a jpg would create gigantic files.
So I need to create either app that will load the original PDF which allows the user to mark it up and save either the annotated PDF , or the annotations themselves back to the webapp.
This also needs to live IN the web browser, launching acrobat reader, or an air app that must be downloaded and installed are not going to work here. So I am wondering is there any alternative strategies on VeryPDF?
Answer: Your question sounds quite complicated but exactly your requirement is quite simply. All you need is just to load a PDF to website allowing users to annotate PDF. After annotation, you need to check the annotated PDF or the annotation information. If I understand you in a wrong way, this question already has an answer on VeryPDF cloud based application, it is VeryPDF Annotator Cloud API (Online PDF Annotation Cloud API), by which you can add notes to PDF, Word or image files right from your web browser and share documents. Please get more information of this software on website, now let us check how it works.
