PDF files are the most common and used type of digital document and for this reason it could be useful to know how to create PDF in the easiest and fastest way possible.
To create a PDF file we can start from a very simple Word document, from an image or from a simple Web page.
HOW TO CREATE PDF
The programs to create PDF are many, for this reason I preferred to make a selection of only the best programs and only the free ones.
The first program that we are going to see PDFCREATOR that you can download here:
LINK | PDFCreator
In a nutshell the program simulates a virtual printer, which instead of printing, does nothing more than convert the file to pdf. In addition, this program allows you to combine multiple text files or images, to create a single pdf, and also allows you to create a pdf file with a password. Let's see how! Install the program and start it, open your document for example in word with which we will obtain a PDF and click as if you were to print the document, but when selecting the printer open the drop-down menu and select PDFCREATOR as you see in the picture below!
Once selected PDFCreator click on OK, a screen like the one below will open.
Set the following points as follows:
- Select the title of the document
- By clicking on Current Date, you will automatically set the current date of the document
- Set the author of the document
- Set the subject of the document
- If you need to add other images or other documents from different files that are jpg files, or doc or other, click on "put in queue", otherwise
- Click on Save to proceed to create the PDF file.
Once you click on Save, it will ask you with what name you want to save the file (as you can see in the image below), and your PDF will be created!
Another excellent PRIMOPDF program that allows you to create PDF with password.
The operation is always the same, choose a document, go to print, and select this time PRIMOPDF, done this you will open a window like this:
This program, like PDFCREATOR, in Italian and allows you to create PDFs with passwords, in addition to many other functions, through the personalize item. It is really comfortable and simple, and affordable for everyone! If you want to set the password on your PDF file, simply click on change next to PDF Security!
