I discovered a gem of a website a few weeks ago after reading one of our organizations blogs. The website is http://www.zamzar.com . Basically it is a free online file conversion website. This is a very handy application to have because many times you may need a specific file, let’s say a Word doc file, to be a PDF file. If you go to this website you are able to convert the Word file to a PDF file in just minutes. Sometimes there is a little wait, but it is free so no complaining on my part. Here are some file formats that Zamzar converts:
- Document formats
- Image formats
- Music formats
- Video formats
- Compressed formats
There is a maximum upload of 100 mb which can be split between up to five different files. The process of converting a file is simple:
- Select the file to convert.
- Choose the format to convert to.
- Enter your email address.
- Click on convert.
In a matter of minutes or sometimes longer you will receive an email message containing the link to your new file.
