Free PDF Tool

Pdf-155498_640The other day I needed to find a way to merge two PDF files together.  I don't have Adobe Acrobat on my PC so I thought I would look to see if there was anything on the Internet that was free and easy to use.  After some searching I found a website called smallpdf.com.  I was amazed at what you could do with PDFs on their website and it was all free.  They have the normal conversions that zamzar.com offers which are JPG to PDF, PDF to Word, PDF to Excel (though I don't know why you would want to do this), PDF to PPT (convert a PDF into Powerpoint sounds really useful), and then the reverse of these.  Then there were some options that I thought were really cool.  They are Compress PDF, Merge PDF (yes!, exactly what I was looking for), Split PDF and Unlock PDF (this unlocks password-protected files; not sure of the legality of this).  I tried the Merge PDFs option and it was very simple.  The merged file I got back looked great and I was very happy with it.  I would highly recommend this website if you ever need to manipulate PDF file(s).
