Print to PDF

Create PDFs as easily as printing with this simple program.

PDF is a popular file format that works well for all kinds of text- and image-based documents. Unfortunately, though, PDFs haven't always been easy to create. PDF24 Creator makes the process of creating a PDF as easy as printing. We've seen other programs that do the same thing, and while PDF24 Creator didn't totally knock our socks off, it stands up well to other basic PDF programs.

The process of using PDF24 Creator really is just like printing: the program appears as an icon along with the your other installed printers, and you need only select the program from the print menu of virtually any program; if it's something you can print, it's something you can turn into a PDF. Click print and the program's menu will pop up, letting you select the desired PDF quality and whether you want to show, save, edit, or e-mail the PDF. The PDF editor was somewhat confusing and didn't seem to have a lot of editing features, so anyone who really wants to customize their PDF files will want to choose another program. But for a basic print-to-PDF program, PDF24 Creator works just fine. The e-mail feature automatically opens your default e-mail program and attaches the newly created PDF, which couldn't have been easier. PDF24 Creator loses points for not having a Help file that we could find, but most of the program's features are easy enough to figure out without guidance.

PDF24 Creator installs a desktop icon without asking but uninstalls cleanly. We recommend this program to all users.
