Convert to pdf online

The ExpressPdf website lets you convert Word and Excel documents as well as websites to pdf files online. It's easy and straightforward. All you need to do is select a document or a website url to convert, provide your email address and the new pdf will be sent to the entered email address once the conversion is finished on the server.

You can choose between four different quality settings: Default, Screen Optimized, eBook Optimized and Print Optimized. Enough said, great service, try it out.

Update: Express PDF is no more. You can use an alternative service like that offered by PDF Online to convert different document formats into pdf.

When you open the website in your web browser of choice, you will notice that conversions are completed in three easy steps. You first need to select a compatible file from your local computer that you want converted to pdf. PDF Online supports the following file formats:

  • MS Word (DOC, DOCX and RTF)
  • MS Excel (XLS and XLSX)
  • MS PowerPoint (PPT, PPTX)
  • MS Publisher (PUB)
  • Text (TXT)
  • Images (JPG, PNG, BMP, TIFF, WMF, EMF, GIF)

Once you have made the selection, select a file name for the output, and enter your email address in the third step. You will receive an email after the conversion that contains the converted document as an attachment.

Another option are Office suits, like Microsoft Office or Open Office, allow you to convert documents that you have opened in the programs. For Open Office, you find the option under File > Export as PDF. If you are a Microsoft Office user, you need to know that Office 2010 supports this option natively, while you may need to use plug-ins if you are working with previous versions of Office.

Depending on which Office program you use, you find the export to pdf option in different places. For Word, you click on the File tab, then Save As, and select pdf as the file type there.

    Sounds ripe for a mashup.

    Free PDF converters are a great feature. I wanted to mention that an easy way to convert to PDF is to use OpenOffice.org. It’s another office suite, compatible with Microsoft Office, and of course free. Download it and install it from http://www.openoffice.org.

    To convert any Microsoft document or another document to PDF, just start OpenOffice.org, open the document, and click the PDF icon on the top OpenOffice.org object bar. (Or choose File > Export as PDF.)

    You can also batch-convert Microsoft or OpenOffice.org documents to PDF with the Web wizard, or create web pages composed of existing documents you point to. The wizard converts documents to PDF, HTML, or leaves them in their original format. In OpenOffice.org, choose File > Wizards > Web Page to see the wizard.
