Editors' Review

+

There are plenty of tools that let users convert a variety of different document types into PDF files, but we're not sure we've ever seen one as comprehensive as PDFill PDF and Image Writer Free. This useful tool not only converts documents to PDFs, but also supports a number of different image formats and lets you adjust a wide variety of settings. If you need a way to take advantage of the characteristics of PDF files without investing in expensive software, give PDFill PDF and Image Writer Free a try.

The program can be accessed from virtually anywhere in Windows; once it's installed, it will appear with your other printer options in the print dialog of any program. A configuration menu lets you set your PDF preferences, including output options, optimization, description, security, view preferences, and presentation. There's a whole slew of PDF tools, too; you can merge multiple PDFs, add headers and footers, apply watermarks, rotate and crop pages, and more. PDFs aren't all the program does, either; documents can also be saved in the PNG, JPEG, BMP, TIF, and GIF formats. PDFill PDF and Image Writer Free is easy enough for anyone to use, but its powerful features will please more advanced users, too. A built-in Help file provides a thorough overview of the program's features and includes plenty of screenshots. Overall, we think that PDFill PDF and Image Writer Free is a great thing to have around; it's easy to access when you need it, stays out of your way when you don't, and it packs a lot of useful features that anyone who works with PDFs will appreciate.

PDFill PDF and Image Writer installs a desktop icon without asking and leaves a folder behind upon removal.

"Maybe it was great once...but not now"

July 05, 2016  |  By make_or_break

2016-07-05 16:31:16  |  By make_or_break

 |  Version: PDFill Free PDF and Image Writer 12.0 build 5

Pros

Nothing. It's explained in the Cons section below.

Cons

Won't install on a clean Win7Pro system. Nada. Zilch. Nothing. Immediately crashes after launching the installation .exe file.

Summary

Can't be any good if you can't get it to run. Shame, because the description makes it sound like a great program.

"Very valuable tool"

September 23, 2014  |  By gatsbydog

2014-09-23 08:22:24  |  By gatsbydog

 |  Version: PDFill Free PDF and Image Writer 11.0

Pros

Easy to use, common sense buttons, many conversion to/from options.

Cons

Unless its changed recently, when you try to arrange documents to merge, you can only see five or so file names at a time. If you click on one lower in the list, it still has you view the top five; which is not where you are working. If you are moving one down, you can't see where to. Maybe they've fixed this by now.

Summary

This program is in my top three most valuable programs.

"Could not print this web page correctly"

July 09, 2014  |  By multi-timm

2014-07-09 15:01:58  |  By multi-timm

 |  Version: PDFill Free PDF and Image Writer 11.0

Pros

Pros? well... I suppose that the fact that it might print to PDF could be considered a pro.
the fact that it was top-rated by cnet should be one, but...

Cons

after installing, I tried to print this webpage to pdf, as a simple test.
most of the large font and headlines characters on this page came out as gibberish!

Summary

I don't know if you have to have special languages or fonts installed in order for this to work... I have English, French and German languages configured.
I have NO ms-office apps or any paid apps - just portable apps and other free software is all I use - so I am not sure if the problems are due to some ms-office dependencies as for another pdf program on here. but I do know that it doesn't work with a simple web page for my setup. so I dare not imagine how it might work when you throw it a curve-ball, asking it to print something more complex.

"One of the best PDF software"

February 18, 2014  |  By Gabe_C

2014-02-18 23:12:01  |  By Gabe_C

 |  Version: PDFill Free PDF and Image Writer 11.0

Pros

Reliable, user-friendly, functional. It does everything we have ever wanted to do with PDFs including merging, splitting documents, rotating, cropping, adding watermarks, converting into images, the list goes on...

Superb support - Prompt in responding and problem solved quickly

Cons

None that I can think of.

Summary

I have been using PDFill PDF & Image Writer now for several years and can attest to the program's user-friendliness and functionality. It works for all types of documents including generating PDF drawings from CAD programs. This software has received accolades from many people and others have reviewed it in far greater detail than I ever can.

I will say this - PDFill PDF & Image Writer is one of the first software that I always install on any new computer! A thumbs-up!!

"Does what I expected - and more!"

January 05, 2014  |  By Slate2k

2014-01-05 19:38:16  |  By Slate2k

 |  Version: PDFill Free PDF and Image Writer 11.0

Pros

It works just as I expected - as a print driver that I can select from any application. I didn't, however, expect the free tools under the File Menu. Already I've used them to convert and merge jpg image files to a single pdf document, as well as merging several scans I had saved as pdf documents into a single document.

Cons

If anything, it's lack of customization during the install process, but big deal; I just deleted the desktop icon and all the other settings were fine.

Summary

If you're looking for a free, easy-to-use,feature-packed application to create and merge pdf documents as well as convert other formats into pdf, then this is the application for you. For a free program, it packs a punch!

"This is a Great App"

July 12, 2013  |  By marc0d0

2013-07-12 17:28:35  |  By marc0d0

 |  Version: PDFill Free PDF and Image Writer 10.0

Pros

It works great on PC platform. You can modify your font size, colors, etc. You can draw circles and hi-lite images as necessary. I use this to keep documents legible and neat.

Cons

It does not allow you to compact your files easily that I have discovered. My files can be large sometimes so I've gotten into the habit of breaking them up in sections.

Summary

Good Workhorse of an app
