PDFCreator: Create PDF file for Free

PDFCreator is a free tool to create PDFs easily from nearly any application. With the PDFCreator printer driver you turn any program into a PDF creating machine.

Download: http://sourceforge.net/projects/pdfcreator/

There is another more well known free PDF creator called PDF995 (I never understand why “995” 😛 ).

Here is my simple comparison on both free PDF creator.

Both are…
– freewares
– as easy to use as printing document
– similar download size

PDFCreator VS. PDF995
– PDFCreator does not has ANY ads! PDF995 display sponsor ads on browser everytime you use it.
– PDFCreator is OpenSource software!
– PDFCreator support output as other graphic types(JPEG, TIFF, BMP…), PDF995 support output to only PDF.
– PDFCreator support email clients(send to email after convert).

I will take back my previous recommentation on PDF995, and recommend PDFCreator now. 🙂

    You know of anything to _batch_ create pdf files ?

  • LcF

    Try this:
    1. set PDFCreator as default printer
    2. select all the documents you want to convert to PDF in Windows Explorer.
    3. right click on one of the selected document, and click “print”
    4. The PDFCreator will auto convert them one by one. You will be asked for path to save, simply click “Save” button to save in save folder as the document.

    P/S: actually this is a tip for _batch_ printing. 😉

    Can anyone tell me which pdf engine is used by the web site http://www.expresspdf.com?

  • antoine

    The web site http://www.expresspdf.com is using Microsoft Office to generate PostScript files from Office documents and a custom program to create PostScript from the web pages (using the Internet Explorer engine).

    The PostScript is then converted to PDF with GhostScript.
