Quote from: kitsunebi on Jul 06, 2023, 09:04 PMPDFs have their place, particularly when your goal is to display text - they're called "true PDFs" and they AREN'T made up of full-page images. Each page is made up of multiple (often dozens) of highly-compressed puzzle-piece-like fragmentations of whatever images are on the page, and the text is pure true-type data, all of which gets compiled by the PDF reader to be seen as a single image. This allows the text to be razor sharp at any viewing size, since it can just scale the font size, and the filesize will be very small since the non-text images are low-res and compressed. This is the format of choice for pretty much all magazine publishers who digitally release their products.
