5 Doubts About Print Magazine Online Clarified by PressPad

Modern publishing is something more than a choice between print and digital. The debates taking place in recent years about whether digital will replace print and when it will come should really be a discussion about the proportions of demand for these two publishing versions. If you want to run a print magazine online, it doesn’t have to mean reducing or eliminating paper editions – it’ll be more like a distribution extension and maybe a path to sustaining your newsroom in the digital future.

Print magazine online as a subject of particular interest raises some doubts. These are related to the role it plays in the publishing business, the PDF replicas usage, the safety of the distribution process, and the availability of this solution.

This article aims to clarify the above doubts and answer questions many publishers asked about print magazines online. Do you want to get the whole truth about it?

What Does the End of Adobe Flash Mean for Digital Publishers?

Some people think of it with a tear in their eyes; others claim with relief that it’s a natural necessity that had to come some time; the rest feel the excitement of looking for new solutions. The end of Adobe Flash Player planned on December 31, 2020, is already a certainty. It will bring digital publishers new, exciting challenges in their business functioning.

In 2007, Mark Anders, back then an Adobe employee, described the Flash as a new publishing tool of the century, and pointed out how it changes the digital world: “We have let more people publish – whether it’s blogging or having a MySpace page, or uploading to YouTube”. He probably didn’t expect then that a decade later Adobe would announce the death of this technology.

Although it cannot be denied that Flash had a huge contribution to the development of Internet websites and digital magazines, its time has come to an end. Today we are getting ready to say goodbye to this technology for good.

What does it mean for publishers who have used digital publishing platforms based on Flash?
