    i want to save information (a combination of text and pictures) on files and then distribute these files to people
    what file format should i choose?
    is rtf acceptable? or maybe microsoft word or something else?
    some people may not have microsoft word installed on their computers ( though there are free programs which can read microsoft word files), however, i think most if not all computers will have wordpad, so, is rtf an acceptable choice?

    ty.

    I think you are better off with a standard file format that can be viewed on every platform. Pdf files are just what you are looking for or even you can use html files. There are pdf viewers or browsers out of the box for every operating system.

    RTF is standard, too. It depends on what you want people to do with the information; if they should just look at it, PDF is fine. If it's supposed to be edited, it is better to choose RTF.
