creating url link in photoshop cs4 for pdf export

Hi friends,

I'm preparing my Cover-Letter and CV in Photoshop. I will save as pdf and contact to my dream company for job : )

I have some website links in these files, how can give link to a text in photoshop? when I export as pdf, the links should take action at on-click.

appreciate helps!!! thanks!

I'm not sure if its possible in photoshop - you will probably have to add the links in Acrobat or some other proper pdf editor/creator.

Very much doubt it, vector support for photoshop PDFs is very low.

You can output text as a 'clipping path' vector, which normally does the job if you don't use faux fonts.

But I still doubt it'll recognise it as a link.

CV's you've probably seen are from Indy/Illy or Quark.

Edit: just tried it and it DOES work, PS CS2 and checked in Acrobat 7. Just make sure you don't use a faux bold/italic etc..
