Jenny McWilliam

I LOVE smallpdf! What a great tool for pdf users.

2018-02-24

This is a great suite of products that makes document management so easy.

Pros

It uses a simple drag and drop interface and then can be downloaded for distribution.

Cons

The free version only allows for 2 compression uses per hour. This is the same for other functions. It is workable, though.

Used to save and share text and image documents as the platform that helps you convert and edit your

2018-03-21

Used in the functions of dividing into several sections, and converting from one format to another (from PDF to Word, Excel, JPG or PPT and vice versa, as well as joining and dividing.

Pros

It is very easy to convert the files, and transforms any PDF file into JPEG images.

Cons

It is easy to use and its functionality allows you to convert files that I do not consider to be disadvantageous with this application.

SmallPDF is one of the best tools we have ever discovered. We use it daily. It is great!

2018-03-26

Pros

This is a great help when storage space is limited in some of the apps we use.

Cons

If a file is the smallest size after merging or converting and then compressing the file, we receive a message stating that the file cannot be compressed to a smaller size but we are not given the option to download the merged or converted file.

The edition option does not has so many tools, just the basic for edition, and to add some figures to the file, but you cannot edit text or tables with this app.

The process of conversion of your PDF files all through the cloud

2018-02-28

Awesome tool to edit, modify and convert files into PDF and all this do it through the cloud.

Pros

In this app I can upload files to apply changes directly from my Google Drive and Dropbox, which is very helpful for my because I do not have to occupy storage in my computer, tablet or smartphone.

Cons

The private policy for me is compromised, becuase I do not know if they have the same policies of Google and Microsof, so I do not know what is the destination of the original file or if this is deleted once I do the process of conversion.

Join and sign PDF files for free

2018-02-28

Great software to join and sign PDF files.

Pros

This tool allows to do easily a process that in the past it was so difficult to do, join a PDF was an annoying thing to do but with SmallPDF you only have to add the files, select the pages of start and finish and in few seconds you will your PDF download in your computer.

Cons

I have to have internte connection to work with, so I think that they must offer a downloable version to use it directly in the computer or smartphone.

2018-02-27

Transform my documents and presentations in a very easy way and share the files with my family, friends and clients.

Pros

I start using computers late in my life, so did not know how to transform files into a PDF format to send by email and share the information with my family and clients, so I found Smallpdf and it was great, because I can transform my documents and presentations through their three steps system and I can easily download, send by email and share with family, friends and clients.

Cons

Actually I like all of it, I had read that they must offer must formats, but for me is great, because I only works with documents and presentations, it will be wonderful if they offer a version for download to do directly from my computer.

2018-02-21

Amazing tool to modify and edit PDF files.

Pros

I have thousands of PDF files in my computer and sometimes I need to do some modifications or add some informations, I can do all this things through SmallPDF, with this app I can convert PDF files to MS Word, Excel, Powerpoint and also to JPEG format, those are awesome features because in the past I cannot find a tool that can do everything that Small PDF can do.

Cons

This app only works with internet connection, so you cannot use without internet connection and you do not have the possibility to download and use it directly in your computer.

The plataform to convert your PDF and for free

2018-02-27

Convert files into a PDF in only two or three steps, keeping the quality of the files and all the details.

Pros

I can convert the must common files in to PDF easily, just selecting the option of conversion and the file that you have in your computer or device, and in few seconds you have your files download in PDF format.

Cons

I think that the privacy and the content of the file is compromised, even they working to a secure connection, you do not know if the save a copy of your file for registration or other porpuse, so I will not reccomend convert private files with this tool.

Edit and compress PDF files in three steps

2018-02-28

Compressed and edit PDF files in a very easy way and without download a program or app.

Pros

SmallPDF also brings the opportunity to compress files, which is a great feature for huge files like books or file with a lot of images, that you want to save for you or share, the process is the same, and a few seconds you your file compress in your computer.

Cons

I think that they must add more options to edit, the ones that exist are very simple, maybe they can add the option of make personal stickers and more option of figures to add, and also the possibility to add and modify tables.

Pros

I can do a lot of things with SmallPDF, I can edit, merge, transform from multiple formats, split, rotate, and so on, all this only selecting the document, later the option that I want apply and in few seconds my file will be ready for download, this is one of the most complete apps to work with PDF files.

Super easy to use, wish it could upload a little fast sometimes

2018-03-07

Pros

I use small pdf because we scan cdocuments into a system that redacts info automatically, which makes my pdf file much larger than it should be to email to our exec director.

Cons

If the file is fairly large, it can take over an hour to compress, which also slows down the wifi for everyone else in the office.

Pros

Finally I can do a lot of things in my PDF files easy and for free, just in four steps I can do what I need, I just have to select the file, upload, select the options to apply and in few minutes my file is ready to use, all this in about two or three minutes, with no publicity or watermarks.

Cons

I had some troubles working with heavy files because the app has trouble with files that exceed the 20 megas of content, so I have to compress the file first and later do the process.

Excellent online PDF software

2018-05-16

I recommend this to everyone who needs a solid pdf editing tool, beware of the fact that it works online so you can rely on it only when you have an internet connection and it would be better if it is a good one too.

Pros

It has so many great functions not just for file conversion (from jpg, powerpoint, docs, xlsx, xls to PDF or visceversa) it can edit them and most importantly split them and merge them which can come really handy.

Cons

In our country our internet connection is really slow so working with large files is really a pain.
