Has anyone come across a shareware or freeware application I can use to turn ONE pdf document into a 'pageflip' style eBook? The free trial downloads aren't going to work for me. There are some good looking options but the software licensing is too pricey for what is essentially a one-off.Any advice appreciated.(ps I have no html or Flash experience, so I really am looking for an simple 'convert to' option).Cheers, Kirsty

Or install the "7 days free trial" into something like Altiris SVS (freeware) and use it just this once for the project before just deleting the virtual image which will leave no trace of the application on your machine and only the resulting file.

Ensure the trial is a full options trial and not a "watermarker" or "limited functions" though, You might be able to find perhaps a flash based application or even just bundle the PDF with SumatraPDF. (freeware standalone pdf reader that is only 1Meg in size)

Thanks, both of you.
The PDF995 was a good call, but it looks like it doesn't have that feature.
I've used a couple of web-based free trials, but the resulting 'image'/link expires when the trial expires. I'll see if I get any joy on a downloadable option like you recommended. 
Any other suggestions happily accepted too.
Cheers, Kirsty
