PDF Conversion Made Easy
When it comes to free PDF conversion tools, the Internet is full of possibilities. One tool that’s easy to use and includes many options is Smallpdf.com
I first stumbled upon Smallpdf when I was looking for a tool to compress a large PDF file into something smaller. My colleague Carol and I tested the compression tool by comparing it to a well-known licensed PDF suite. We found the compression rates were generally comparable. I soon found that Smallpdf has many additional uses. The “Convert” option allows users to convert to and from many file formats.
In addition, Smallpdf can be used to merge several PDF documents into one and it can be used to apply passwords to PDF documents. The clean, easy-to-use homepage makes it simple to choose your task and get on with your project. Because it’s cloud-based, there’s no need to install any software on your computer.
