Best Free Tool to Create PDF Documents Print
Tuesday, 20 March 2007 16:20

PDFI did a little investigating today for a free simple way to create Adobe Acrobat PDF documents. After looking around for a while, I narrowed it down to three of the more popular picks available today: BullZip PDF Printer, CutePDF Writer, and PrimoPDF. All three got the job done, but I liked the BullZip product best. It was the least obtrusive with the most features. All three programs work by using Ghostscript and installing a virtual PDF printer. To create a PDF document, you simply print to the virtual printer. This enables you to create PDF files from most any application.

 

BullZip PDF Printer

BullZip1pixProsIn my opinion BullZip is the best free tool for creating PDF documents. It offers more features than most of the other freebies out there, and integrates them smoothly to allow for painless PDF creation. In comparison to others, I paticularly liked its creation popup dialog box. BullZip PDF Printer is completely free and does not contain any adware or spyware.

CutePDF

CutePDF1pixProsCutePDF is very simple to use.
ConsCutePDF doesn't offer any extra features. To adjust simple settings such as quality of the output require you to adjust parameters in your PDFWrite.rsp file. CutePDF Writer Companion adds free utilities to Writer, but at the cost of adware; yuck!
