Start Consolidating multiple pdf files into one

Consolidating multiple pdf files into one

Go back to the “Old Photos folder” and rename that dated folder, and copy-paste it again. Now that you have renamed the file, the last step is to open the Darkroom software to the Photo Library page, click on the top catalog called Photo Library, and press Ctrl R on your keyboard.

Supported OSs for the PDF Consolidation Utility can be found in the left hand column of this page. You will receive a link to the PDF consolidation utility automatically by email.

If you don't see the email, please check your junk mail.

**Note: If Windows prompts you to overwrite a dated folder, click on Cancel.

This is because your Current “Photos” folder already has a dated folder with the same name.

The X: drive will only be present when you are running the Darkroom software, By default, the “Photos”folder is set to C: Program Files\Express Digital\Darkroom Pro\Photos. Using Windows Explorer (accessed by opening My Computer), browse to your “Photos” folder.

We will refer to this as the “Current Photos folder”. You will notice that there are folders with names that start with a date in the format YEARmonth DATE, i.e. In this particular example, the folder name 20060116 stands for the week of January 16, 2006. Rename each dated folder by appending a letter or text string at the end.

On the Data tab, in the Data Tools group, click Consolidate. For example, cell B2 (in distric1.xlsx) cell B2 (in district2.xlsx) cell B2 (in district3.xlsx).

Note: if you don't check Top row and Left column, Excel sums all cells that have the same position.

The PDF (or image) files will be combined in the same order that you see in the window (from top to bottom).

The program will prompt you to specify a file name for the consolidated PDF file.

Joining PDFs is handy now and then, but for those of us who haven't shelled out the bucks for Acrobat, it was previously out of reach.
