Flip PDF Professional transforms your static PDF files into dynamic, animated e-books with a pro-looking page-flip effect, beautiful background images, and useful navigability options. The resulting e-book can then be saved as an HTML document, a ZIP archive file, a Mac OS APP file, or as an EXE file, for easy distribution.

PDF files are dealt with one at a time. The program analyses the PDF file and then it shows you a preview of the book using a default template and a default set of controls, all of which are fully customizable. Before the conversion takes place, you are given the opportunity of deciding on the level of quality you want to apply to your book, as well as on the importation of bookmarks and hyperlinks from the PDF file, the selection of the page range to convert, or the addition of a watermark.

The next step is to define the appearance of your book. Here you are offered a wide variety of templates and scenes that will help you give a colorful, elegant, funny, or formal look to the background where the e-book rests. Here you can also change the buttons for the navigation controls, add transparent thumbnails of the pages, and decide on the sharing options that you want to give to the reader. To top it all off, you can also make your own text recordings (using whatever synthetic voice you have installed on your system) and add them to your book in just the right places.

The PDF file itself can also be edited. Just before creating your e-book, you can call the Flip Page Editor. Here you are offered various editing tools to add all kind of multimedia and text to your PDFs. Without being a fully-fledged PDF editor, this useful tool will help you enhance and highlight certain parts of the text, be it with a sticky note, a video file, or some background music. The conversion process itself is simple and straightforward. You just need to decide on the output format you require, and the program will do the rest.

Remember that this is a professional tool, designed to produce professional-quality animated magazines, books, guides, booklets, etc. – hence the 200$ price tag.
