I found myself in a bind earlier this week. I needed to change the second page of a .PDF print quote so that it had a signature. The signature was a different file. Normally, I’d print them out and then scan the two pages I needed and create a new PDF, but to facilitate that I’d need to drive up to my office in Ypsilanti which wasn’t really an option. So I started hunting around online to find a site that would let me merge and edit the documents. After finding a few terrible options, I discovered Online PDF Converter. It was exactly what I needed and easy to use, so I thought I’d share it with you!

When you arrive at the site, you’ll find that everything you need to know is right there on the page. They lay out the directions, the different uses of the site, and the different types of files you can use to achieve your goal. They also provide a link to the documentation of all the features offered.

To use the converter is really easy! To begin, click the Select files and select the file or files you want to work with.

There are some ad choices just below it, so watch out for that.

Choose which format you want to convert the file to. It is set to file PDF by default, but you can click the arrow next to convert to: and choose Word, Excel, and PowerPoint options, image files, or plain and rich text.

To the right, you’ll find editing options like a wizard of selecting and reordering pages that comes with a live preview.  You can even split your file into separate pieces.

Scroll down for more options like compression, adding a password, locking printing, altering the header and footer or changing layouts.

Once you’ve made your selections, just click the red Convert button. It will upload the file or files, make the changes you want, and then automatically download your new file. If it doesn’t automatically download the file, you can click the Manual Download link to download the file.

This site makes it easy to convert and edit documents for free. Go check it out today!
