Today I am going to tell you about my favorite FREE PDF convertor – CutePDF. In spite of the sugary name it is an excellent piece of software and it is super easy to use – if you can print you can make a PDF. I especially like the fact that you can create a PDF from virtually any type of file. This is especially handy for me when I need to create a proof of a postcard or other design project for a client.
Here is what the creators Acro Software say about their product: Portable Document Format (PDF) is the de facto standard for the secure and reliable distribution and exchange of electronic documents and forms around the world. CutePDF Writer (formerly CutePDF Printer) is the free version of commercial PDF creation software. CutePDF Writer installs itself as a printer subsystem. This enables virtually any Windows applications (must be able to print) to create professional quality PDF documents with just a push of a button.
Basically, this software installs inself as another printer on your system. Open the file you want to covert, go to File/Print and choose CutePDF from the list of available printers. When you click print it will direct you to name and save the new PDF. That’s all there is to it!!
