How To Merge PDF Files [Tutorial]

Thanks to scanning software, it is by now fairly easy to send documents you want to keep via the internet. Scanning lecture books and other (scientific) work to read it on your computer is also a great invention of the past decades. However, what if the scanning process is interrupted in the middle and only half the job is sent? Or what if you scanned your ID card and now have both sides in different documents?

Likewise, some websites require you to upload information like a job application directly using the PDF format. Yet, what if they only allow uploading one file? And you have individual documents saved for your cover letter, resume, scanned certificates, etc.?

For these and other purposes it comes in handy when you can merge several PDF files into one. With our free online tool, you can merge two or more PDFs easily!
