Create a PDF file
Instead of printing your collection on numerous sheets of paper and show it to your friends, you can easily create a PDF file of your collection. You will need a PDF writer on your computer (when on a Mac, this option is a standard feature - just click File > Print and choose: Save as PDF).
There are several free PDF writers available. CutePDF for example.
A PDF writer works just like a printer: except it sends the data to a PDF file, instead of to a sheet of paper. The great advantage of creating a PDF, is that it's mostly small in file size and easy to send by email.
