Smallpdf is a fantastic platform that offers a simple, speedy, and efficient solution to various PDF-related problems. Its user-friendly interface and the wide range of tools make it the perfect choice for anyone who works with PDF files

Pros

Smallpdf is an online platform that provides an efficient and easy-to-use solution to several PDF-related problems. The website offers an array of tools that makeit incredibly convenient to work with PDFs, whether you need to convert, compress, merge, or edit them.One of the best features of Smallpdf is its simplicity. Even users who are not tech-savvy can easily navigate through the websitemanipulating...

Cons

One slight downside of Smallpdf is that the free version has size and file number limitations. For heavy users, the pro version is available at an affordable price, which unlocks even more features.

SUCH a great, inexpensive investment that is worth every penny

Reviewed 3 years ago

We first needed a program that would convert a PDF to a Word document, and Adobe Acrobat was OUTRAGEOUSLY expensive. I started looking into other options, and stumbled upon SmallPDF. We soon decided to purchase the PRO version because I ended up using it for so many things that it was worth it for us to make the small investment to go PRO. Now we use to combine multiple Word documents into one, huge PDF, to sign documents electronically, to ask others to sign a document electronically, to compress PDFs, to edit them, to add text to them, etc. It is simply a handy tool for anyone who works with PDFs, which I'm guessing is the majority of businesses and organizations. I couldn't recommend this product more.

Pros

There is so much I love about this software. It's so easy to use. It is laid out so simply, anyone can figure it out. Every time I have a problem with a PDF, I look to see if SmallPDF has a solution to it, and 9 times out of 10, they do. The purchase price is so small, and just worth every penny. The online signatures work great. It downloads documents quickly. It works GREAT at compressing PDFs. It even has the ability to unlock PDFs, lock them, and convert JPGs. It is such a useful tool. There is also a lot you can do with the free version, which I really appreciate.

Cons

I can't thin of a single thing. I truly appreciate this software and all of its capabilities. It has a solution for most of the problems that I have with PDFs, and I can't even think of the very rare times where it didn't offer a solution to my problem.

All type of pdf work can be done with the tool

Reviewed 8 months ago

I am satisfied with the smallpdf. I love using it. It serve all my purposes. So i am recommending it to everyone.

Pros

This the allrounder tool that can solve all your pdf problems. It can be used for merging pdf, compressing, editing pdf, protecting pdf everything can be done with that. So it's must recommended.

Cons

If you are using free plan, there is so much limitation. But if you want to buy a plan, it will cost a bit high amount as per my point of view. Because using this tool is not a daily task for normal people. So they should decrease the price.

Good PDF software

Reviewed a year ago

My overall experience with Smallpdf has been positive. The online tools offered by Smallpdf are easy to use and understand, and they have a wide variety of options to choose from.

Pros

Smallpdf is a great online service that simplifies the process of working with PDFs. I really like that it is an all-in-one solution for creating, editing, and converting PDFs. It offers a wide range of features and tools, such as merging and splitting PDFs, adding and removing pages, compressing files, and more. The service is also incredibly user-friendly and easy to use, with a clean and intuitive interface.

Cons

I like least about Smallpdf is the limited features compared to other PDF software. It does not offer the same level of customization or the ability to edit documents as some of the more expensive programs.

Just perfect

Reviewed a year ago

I love it, will always use it as long as it stays that simple. The interface is familiar, with all things in the right place. It is one of those software that every business should have on their desktop. Strongly recommend.

Pros

Converts everything. From PDFs to JPGs with incredible accuracy and efficiency. I really like the classic PDF editing modes, always useful and well done. But I also appreciated the possibility of digital signing and PDF protection, making them within everyone's reach.

Cons

The price. Maybe a little high for these basic features. The functions of Small PDF are easily available online for free. However, it does offer unlimited downloads and desktop apps.

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

Reviewed 6 years ago

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

Pros

This software is SO quick and easy to use online. I produce a lot of pdf's for work that need to be emailed out. By compressing the pdf's through smallpdf, they are smaller and faster to send. It uses a simple drag and drop interface and then can be downloaded for distribution. Documents can be uploaded from your pc, but also Dropbox and Google Drive. A graphic designer I know did not believe that...

Cons

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

Needs a lot of improvement

Reviewed 3 years ago

A good product, have scope for improvement, as I use only for eSign tool I would want the process to be simpler and the issue highlighted above to be addressed.

Pros

My job requires end-user to digitally eSign the documents, smallpdf was very handy to carry out the same. Also all the PDF tools were handy and work with Ease.

Cons

1. End-user used to see the pixelated document, when highlighted there was no help. 2. Recent force landscape option to complete the eSign was giving trouble to most of my end-users, have to call and guide them to complete the process. 3. Documents used to take ever to load in few cases even with good connectivity and never used to load with moderate to low connectivity.

Forget Adobe! Use this for your PDF Needs!

Reviewed 2 months ago
Pros

Easy to use, so many features. I mainly used it to work with PDFs. Adobe (the free version) has its limitations to edit and sign PDFs which is extremely annoying and I'm not paying their ridiculous price just to edit/sign a PDF. Smallpdf was heaven sent. I edit and sign all PDFs on there. Won't ever use anything els!

Cons

The price. It gives you a limit as to how many times you can edit a PDF each day for free, so if I need to correct an error or update a PDF I edited, let's say, an hour earlier, I can't and get a pay wall. You get like 2-3 times in a day as the limit.

Best tools to work with pdf

Reviewed a year ago

It is an excellent tool for any kind of work with pdf with ease of understanding even for school kids. I used it on weekly basis to complete my work with a little time. The best part of this tool is the templates which savemy lots of time to design.

Pros

I liked small pdf due to their simple and easy-to-understand user interface. Functionalities are categorized better way as compared to other similar tools which do not create confusion for me as a user of small pdf. Pricing is excellent for countries like India. The best part I liked about small pdf is the template's of invoices, bills, etc.

Cons

In small pdf, some of the functionality is missing pdf reader like reading mode, search for a keyword in the pdf reader, and commenting option. Customer service should be improved. If it has integration features like google drive, and GitHub it is easier and time-saving to do the work.

Review for Smallpdf

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

Very nice online application that does things like split pdf to office formats, split pdf documents, merge pdf files, convert image files to pdf, crack password (remove password). If you want, it saves the file to dropbox or google drive. I've been using it lately. I dealt with a few sites and programs that said before, that they would translate the first three pages, and that they could not translate it in a ridiculously long time. But this is really nice. At the same time, pdf documents are signed electronically, as well as allowing you to do a thousand and one transactions.

Cons

Application where the desktop version is even more useful than the site. I think its price is more expensive than other similar products. The lack of OCR support is also a shortcoming.

One of the best tools around, highly recommned

Reviewed 3 years ago

The benefits of this tool is that my overall productivity has been increased by the fact that I can use this tool very quickly and effectively to convert CVs from PDF to Word to allow me to edit them. It's so easy to use that the rest of my team also use this tool on a daily basis

Pros

The pricing of this software makes it incredibly attractive. The low cost means that we can have unlimited usage of something that me and my team use every single day is highly critical to our work

Cons

There is not much to like apart from the fact that some documents are sometimes not recognised by the software tool but this happens very infrequently and has little no impact on my job

Great way to merge PDFs into one readable PDF

Reviewed a year ago

Overall, we used smallpdf for years and typically in the easiest feature pdf merging. We still like it and use it on a daily basis.

Pros

Before we found Smallpdf we had a hard time getting all the PDFs together for the doctors to read. Now all we have to do is open smallpdf and drag and drop and we now only have to deal with one easy to read doc.

Cons

I'm not a big fan of the pricing. I know they have to make money and that most businesses can easily pay for such a service. But even if you do pay, you may not get all the features unless you pay more. Should be one flat rate fee for all the features and be done.

Smallpdf: your documents have never been easier

Reviewed a year ago

As a professional in the field, where every day I deal with documents and especially with all these formats (pdf, jpg, png, pptx) knowing all its features is really a trump card and a crazy time saver, especially because the interface is really well done and the download is fast.

Pros

Its biggest plus is undoubtedly the amount of functionality it can offer: it can compress, convert from different formats (pdf, jpg, pptx, in short really many formats), it can merge, split or export single pages. All these functions are just a click away, with a simple and fresh interface.

Cons

When your files are too heavy it becomes chargeable. The price is not expensive, however usually when you use it you need to get things done quickly and finding the banner for payment is not the best.

The greatest PDF tool software out there.

Reviewed 6 years ago

Smallpdf has been a handy tool to convert Microsoft Office files to PDF, as the current export option highly reduces image quality, and to compress files that are quite heavy. My company publish a monthly catalog which is usually two or three heavy files, where I need to not just join these files but also heavily compress them and Smallpdf does it perfecly.

Pros

Smallpdf is a complete solution for PDF files, being the most popular one the possibility to convert these to Microsoft Office files or images (and vice versa). They also offer some editing tools, such as being able to merge or split different files, rotate them and even signing or unlocking files. Also, the compress tool is shockingly effective, reducing some files sizes by 90% with a barely noticeable loss on quality. They also offer a desktop solution that is completely offline, being a lot cheaper than other tools in the market.

Cons

The only negative aspect I can think of is the lack of prepaid options. While it is possible to do two operations each hour for free, I can't justify paying a monthly fee when I may only need to convert no more than ten files weekly.

Excellent Alternative!

Reviewed 5 years ago

This is a suitable and viable alternative to Adobe. It offers a range of functionality at a reasonable cost and a high level of efficiency--as long as one can look beyond the primitive interface.

Pros

SmallPDF provides users with exceptional levels of functionality and speed if the Adobe client is not available or purchased. It offers a range of conversions and compression possibilities.

Cons

SmallPDF does have some aesthetic drawbacks, as it appears to be a bit primitive. It also requires quite a bit of dragging, dropping, and clicking to accomplish tasks.

Reviewed 6 years ago

I can't tell you enough how much I love this software, it has truly been a gamechanger for me, even for someone who doesn't want to pay for the software (even though is really cheap) its free version is amazing for pdf reading.

Pros

SmallPDF is the best pdf software ever, it is extremely easy to use for pdf converting or editing, it comes with every tool you might possibly need for working with pdfs and best of all at a really reasonable price, it is the whole package.

Cons

The only issue I might have with smallpdf (but that I really understand) is the fact that when working with large files the conversion process can take a long time. Also opening the software can take a longer time than with other ones.

One of a best tool for pdf operations

Reviewed a year ago

When it comes to the comparison of cost, usability and features, this product can recommend more than any other tools

Pros

I used to use the free version of small pdf since my college period, because this tool is far better and user friendly than other famous and expensive pdf tools. This platform allows to operate almost all the pdf operations like editing, merging, conversion etc. with less effort. Also free version in also allows several features but the paid version allows ultimate freedom to use.

Cons

Since this one is a online tool, I have to use internet connection in order to use the tool. But it would be far better if there is a offline version.

A very effective software that calls for user efficieny.

Reviewed 2 years ago

The software got the job done but it is very time-consuming and calls for a lot of user efficiency since mistakes often meant that the editing process had to be restarted.

Pros

The ease of access, the reliability, and the effectiveness of the software is what makes it manageable for day-to-day users.

Cons

The software does not perform well on low bandwidth speeds and the absence of different fonts and background colors in the text editing area makes the app less versatile.
