I’ve had access to Adobe Acrobat 5.0 for quite a while now (yes, I know it’s outdated – it’s free through the company I work for) and just realized that I use it quite a bit for everyday activities. It especially comes in handy when I’m not connected to a printer or want to save a softcopy of a webpage; I just use the Distiller to convert my document to PDF and save it to view or print later on. Anyways, I figure that not everyone has access to the Adobe Acrobat creator, or wants to splurge on a copy of it, so here’s a list of services that provide free PDF conversion.
-Web Based PDF Conversion-
Neevia Document Converter eXpress
FYI, they have a 1MB file limitation on uploads.
-Local PDF Conversion- (installed on your computer)
PDFCreator creates PDFs from any Windows program, just like Adobe’s Distiller.
According to the site, it was elected as one of the “50 Best free downloads” by Computer Shopper (May 2004).
Includes features like secure 40-/128-bit encryption and the ability to add document information (title, author, subject, keywords, et cetera).
Allows PDF bookmarks and integrated hyperlinks.
