If you are the type of person who work with a lot of documents in various types and formats, from PDF and Word files to JPEG or RAW files, and many a times, you surely will have come across the need to produce PDF documents out of them, or combine all of them into a single unified one PDF file.

But why to convert to PDF at all? Turning your documents to PDF format makes them portable, smaller, searchable and generally easier to view, print, store and share, independent of application software, hardware and operating systems. This makes PDF the most usable and suitable format for all types of business presentations. Another analogy is that, PDF is the format people use when they need an electronic ‘hard copy’ document. Many business, publishing and records-keeping applications require a reliable, flexible and capable analog for paper. Some love their TIFF files, but those are pictures, not documents. For the vast majority, PDF remains the most popular document format.

Along with the most conversion options and content control over your PDF contents, File to PDF application provides you with the unique ability to generate PDF documents from almost any file formats.
