I am looking to create a PDF using Arc10 that contains locations for our site. At each of these locations you would be able to click the point and you can then see the photos for the area. Is this possible?

I am thinking something like Google Earth's functionality for shared photos. I feel like this is feasible.

Thanks! This is what I am working with right now, however it's not exactly what I am looking for. Based on my time frame I am going to have to make a webmap with the images embedded. This is a good exercise for the future. Thank you again. – TonyF Jun 25 '13 at 16:16

There is an existing ArcGIS Idea requesting to have this precise functionality implemented so I recommend that you add your vote to it (if you have not already).

It is called Export PDF maps with Hyperlinks active.
