Free PDFTiger!

2009-12-10_210217PDFTiger is a software that aims to serve as an all-around PDF tool. Not only does it have a PDF printer to allow you to create PDFs, but it also has a PDF converter allowing you to convert PDFs -> .DOC/.RTF/.TXT/Images (JPG, PNG, GIF, BMP, TIF)/.HTML/.SWF. If you want to learn about PDFTiger in detail, please read my full review on it. As my full review indicates, I am not particularly impressed with PDFTiger, but hey, if you want it, you can get it for free; just follow these simple directions:

Version being given away for free: v1.0

    @hysterian: That sucks. Thanks for letting us know.

    @giovanni: Ya this one needs work. However, eXPert PDF Pro 5 and 7-pdf are not true alternatives to PDFTiger. eXPert PDF Pro 5 can create PDFs and do PDF -> Word conversions. 7-pdf can only create PDFs. PDFTiger can create PDF and do many PDF -> different format conversions.

    @normofthenorth: I am, ya. I post about the giveaways that I think people may be interested in.

    You are right I wasn’t raised in an “Advent Calendar” household. Heck I don’t even know what an “Advent Calendar” is nor that “Advent Calendar” households exist LOL.

    Ashraf, it looks like you’re keeping track of that Advent Calendar, so I’ll stop posting about it on the other thread.

    I wasn’t raised in an “Advent Calendar” household (and I’m guessing you weren’t either), but I can see the appeal! It’s kind of fun to see what’s hidden behind the next day’s door!!

    Well, as I can see from Ashraf’s review, this tool doesn’t look flawless (Ashraf gave it a Thumbs Down), does it?

    So can’t see any reason to grab it despite being free, taking into account that even Expert Pdf Pro 5 is also FREE and much better than this.

    Another great free PDF converter is this:
