Hey, who doesn’t like free? Also a PDF converter is very useful for lots of stuff that I do, so I went ahead and gave this a try. The lifheacker link also has instructions on how to do it without paying for software.
Still, free until February 5th, 2011.
PDFs are an extremely popular document format, but come with the annoying caveat that you can’t edit them without an expensive program like Adobe Acrobat. If you find that this is a major hindrance, you can convert them to other editable formats with PDFZilla: it can batch convert any number of PDF files into Word documents, RTF, TXT, Images, HTML, and more in just a few clicks. It’s a heck of a lot easier than buying Adobe Acrobat, and pretty convenient if all you need to do is jump in a document and do some tweaks.
PDFZilla is normally $29.95, but you can grab it for free right now until February 5th, 2011. PDFZilla is for Windows only.
