One of the greatest features of Mac OS X is that it has built in support for creating PDFs. This is also useful if you want to transfer files to someone who may not have the same application installed.

To create a PDF follow these steps:

Step One
Open any document that you would like to convert to PDF. In my case I will convert a picture from Preview into a PDF document.
