Perfect for E-Business Needs

2019-09-10

Isn't it amazing? Thirdly, I quite often use protect PDF option for confidential documents when I store them in common drive.

Pros

Merging PDFs have become so easy thanks to iLovePDF. The easy drag and drop function has made the website much more user friendly than similar websites.

Cons

However, it would have been better if iLovePDF allow us to name our files appropriately before downloading.

Amazing - has saved me hours of time

2018-08-15

I have been using this website to convert pdf to jpeg all day everyday for two weeks its been brilliant. Cannot recommend enough!!!

Pros

That you can literally just drag and drop pdf onto the page - click on covert and within seconds drag your converted document back to the file - its brilliant!

Cons

Will only convert three documents at any one time - so if you have more it takes a little longer.

Drag and Drop.... It's that simple!

2019-12-12

I deal with a lot of presentations and reports that are too large to send through email.

Pros

All I do is drag from my folder and drop it in to the site and hit compress.

Cons

Sometimes when compressing my PDFs, the images lose their high resolution quality. It makes sense to compress those types of things in a large presentation, but sometimes it looks very bad and I would have to go another route.

Useful tool to quickly edit PDF's

2019-01-17

iLovePDF is the most useful PDF editing tool. I have an Adobe Acrobat Pro account as well and I find it much harder to edit PDF's within Adobe than using iLovePDF.

Pros

The functionality is easy as you simply have to drag and drop the files within the website or you can look the file up within your saved files and there is a button to click which does the work for you.

Cons

There are very few cons using this program, one thing I would recommend is that when you are editing a file such as merging it and you click the merge button the file would automatically download, rather than having to click download file afterwards.

Very easy and fast I love PDF software

2020-08-27

I used this software a lot in my financial activities in the company, because I needed to join three different files and include it in another system, I Love PDF is used until today to compress all types of files in Capital Realty.

Pros

I loved the functionality and speed of the software, also the ease of selecting files and compressing them to PDF.

Cons

What I liked the least is that when downloading the file it has a nomenclature full of letters and numbers, I could have an option to already name my file the way I want and then download the compressed file in pdf.

I love to drop it like it's hot with iLovePDF

2020-07-09

Clients are not as tech savvy as we'd like - but instead of pressuring them to provide us documents in the appropriate size, I can drop it and instantly compress any document.

Pros

And I know it's a small thing - but I love it when it says "Drop it like it's hot" when prompting the file upload.

Cons

No cons. I love it. It works great every time with no fuss, and it's free which is a huge help to our budgets.

Useful, the easiest way to create PDF

2019-12-11

I had a long search on softwares to do this job.

Pros

There are many reasons that make me use this software: it is very simple to use, it has all the simple features that I need but also some advanced features for PROs users. The design is cute but also simple so you can find every setting you need.

Cons

For example if you drag and drop many files to merge them in a unique PDF (I am talking about 20 or more) the order that you have in your folder will not be the one on the software.

Most Comprehensive PDF Software I've Seen

2020-06-09

This is by far the most polished and feature-packed PDF software that I have come across online.

Pros

All of this is done online, which I like since I do not have to download any files to my computer.

Cons

It offers more than any other free online service I have seen. The interface is easy and clean, and I would recommend it to anyone.

A fast way to work with PDF files

2018-09-25

Despite that SmallPDF is my main choice, I have been using iLovePDF quite often in other computers as it offers to convert several without a time limit for free.

Pros

iLovePDF is a solid online service for editing PDF files, offering a nice range of tools mainly focused on converting PDF files to images and Office files and vice versa.

Cons

One of them is the size limit for compressing files, being smaller than some design or print files.

Great online product

2019-02-11

Using this software over a paid software is a great alternative when you're not a card holder at work and you require the services that it can provide.

Pros

It's a great, free alternative to using some of the brand names that are associated with PDFs and is fantastic when you need to convert a document or merge a document.

Cons

Could be a little difficult to use for those that are less used to navigating round the page. Due to the adverts, sometimes it might be a little tricky to work out where to press on the page.
