PDF is a very shared file format these days, thanks to the ease of working with it. In addition, it ensures that the original text is not altered and is also a more reliable option, especially in official documents. Another advantage is that it can be translated using Google Translate, simply and quickly.
For this reason, it is common to find files in other formats, and need to convert them to PDF. The iLovePDF website is an excellent option for this kind of thing. That’s because it’s free, converts multiple documents at once, accepts files of different formats and lets you reduce sizes, organize page order, split a file to turn it into separate PDFs, and unlock protected PDFs.
Convert files to PDF
The site has several features in addition to PDF conversion.Source: iLovePDF
The first thing to do when accessing the site is to choose what type of document you want to convert. The procedure is the same for all formats, so you just need to decide which one best suits your needs.
Once you have chosen the format, you must select the document(s) you want to convert. You can do this by adding a file right from your computer, sharing a file from Google Drive or Dropbox. On the next screen, you can decide if you would like to add more files. You can also rotate documents so they are in the correct position.
Once everything is ready, just click on “Convert to PDF” in the lower right corner and wait. You must select the folder where you want to download, or you can choose to save to Google Drive or Dropbox, or share the download link.
Once you’ve finished adding the files, you can download it, save it to Google Drive or Dropbox, or share the link with the file.Source: iLovePDF
It is also worth remembering that it is possible to do the opposite procedure and convert PDFs into Powerpoint, Excel, Word and JPG. The procedure is the same as explained above, just choose at the beginning the “PDF to…” function and the desired format.
Other iLovePDF functions
Another very useful feature of iLovePDF is to merge different PDF files into one. The procedure is very similar to conversion, however it appears as a guide at the top of the page.
After choosing this option, you will be asked to select the files you want to merge. It is not necessary to add them in the final order as you will be able to rearrange everything before joining the files into one. Once everything is in order, just click the “Join PDF” button. You can also select the folder you want to download, or choose to save to Google Drive or Dropbox, or share the download link.
To divide, the procedure is the same as for the others, however, here there is a difference to organize the separation of pages. After adding the files, a menu will appear on the right side.
There you can choose to split by ranges, and put a certain number of pages in each range, or if you want to separate all pages into single files. Once everything is finished just click on “Split PDF” and download or share via Google Drive or Dropbox.
The site also has a feature to split a PDF into several or put several together in one file.Source: iLovePDF
