If you work with PDF documents occasionally, you may have encountered situations where you had to perform operations on them.
Maybe you wanted to extract images from a PDF document, split or merge files, or convert a collection of images to the PDF format for easier sharing or archiving.
While it is possible to find a solution for some procedures without installing specialized software, like using a screenshot-taking tool to save the images to the local system, many other operations cannot be substituted this easily.
That's where specialized software comes into play that provides you with the tools necessary.
The software is a tools collection that enables you to perform various PDF-related operations on your system.
Note: The installer includes an offer to install third party software. Make sure you uncheck the option if you do not want to install the unrelated application on your system.
It makes available the following options:
The tools collection that PDF Shaper makes available can be useful in many different situations. You can use it to merge all PDF documents that you have received during an online or University course for example, or to create yearly archives of newsletters or comic books that have been made available as pdf files.
All tools work in pretty much the same way. You select which application you want to use in the main interface. This opens a new smaller window where you need to configure the process.
If you want to extract images, you select from which pdf files and where you want the images to be saved to, and if you want to split pdf files, you simply do the very same thing.
Files are processed one after the other, and the duration of the process depends largely on the documents or images that you want processed. All in all though, it is considerably fast.
PDF Shaper is a nice to have software to handle various scenarios involving PDF documents on Windows. Its main advantage is that it makes available more than a dozen different tools, while many other programs make available only one processing option or only a few.
