  • FORUM: How to REDACT documents and images of your personal information.

    When uploading documents to the forum we highly recommend, nay, insist !, that you remove personal details from the document. I'll do a little guide for redacting documents for the uninitiated, I think mostly people have problems when going straight from a mobile phone/tablet.... so the simplest way is to use kitchen utensils to cover up your personal info before you take a photo ( I wouldn't go scribbling stuff out with a marker pen, cause you might need the document later for court or another reason and don't want to have permanently ruined it )

    Any support I provide is offered without liability, if you are unsure please seek professional legal guidance.

          WORD should be easy, just change the words you want to remove to XXXXXXXX

          PDF is a bit trickier. I have Adobe PDF Pro now, but in the olden days I'd screenshot the page, edit it on paint, and save it as an image. Bit of a pain. However, don't be tempted just to draw black boxes over the top of a document on PDF - it leaves all your personal info in place and if you scroll up and down quickly it is perfectly visible... so either use the full Redact tool on Adobe PDF Editor or switch them to Images and edit in PAINT ( or Photoshop of course )
