There are numerous reasons why the Adobe PDF format became as popular and widely used as it is today.
Its ability to retain formatting no matter on what computer or device you open it is just as important as the fact that you can easily send it to anyone over the internet without them being able to edit your file. Besides, printing is easy with PDFs as well since the PDF document will look exactly the same printed on paper as it does on your screen (give or take the colors, depending on your screen settings and the quality of your printer and ink).
No, this is not a PDF advertisement, but this should show you that PDF is the format to go for many different things. And with PDF2Go, you can convert almost all of your files to PDF! Find out how!

PDF documents retain the formatting of the document they were made of. This makes them great for sharing, sure, but even better for printing. A PDF is the exact representation of how your page will look after being printed out.
When printing yourself, there isn’t much that can go wrong. If you give a printing job away, the page ratio of a PDF can become a problematic issue. Sending a normal sized PDF (e.g. DIN A4) to a printing company to print a poster (e.g. DIN A1) can result into a severe change of quality.
Don’t worry, PDF2Go has your back. You can easily resize your PDF with our free online tool to fit the most common page sizes. Continue reading How To Resize PDF Documents [Tutorial]

Since PDF files don’t allow further editing of the text or images they contain, they are a great format to share documents and forms online. Sending important documents via e-mail or uploading them to a website for further sharing is the norm by now.
However, if you embed a lot of different images like graphics, charts and photos, clipart and illustrations to a PDF, the file size is significantly high. Especially for PDF documents with many pages.
Luckily, large PDF files can be reduced in file size by a simple compression of the whole file.
[EDIT] We have improved our compression function! This tutorial was, of course, updated to the current and improved state! Continue reading How To Reduce PDF File Sizes [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 to upload 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! Continue reading How To Merge PDF Files [Tutorial]
