Now printable! Reporter’s Guide to Multimedia Proficiency
Many, many people asked me to create a single PDF version of all 15 posts in my RGMP series on this blog. It’s done.
Reporter’s Guide to Multimedia Proficiency (PDF; 536 KB)
This 42-page document is fully linked and usable online in most Web browsers, or in Adobe Reader, or in Preview on the Mac OS. In other words, you don’t need to print it. But if that’s what you want, go right ahead.
If you’re viewing the RGMP in Adobe Reader (free for Windows and Mac), you can click around in the expanded table of contents if you open the Bookmarks navigation pane (below, seen at left): View menu > Navigation Panels > Bookmarks
On the Mac, if you’re viewing the RGMP in Preview, you can click around in the expanded table of contents if you open the Sidebar panel (below, seen at right): View menu > Sidebar
