PDF24 Creator is a lightweight application which acts as a PDF printer. This program helps you easily create PDFs from almost any printable document by following a few simple steps. In addition, you can use it as a converter, since it has the ability to save documents not only in PDF, but also as .ps, .eps, .pcl, .png, .jpeg, .bmp, .pcx, .tiff, .psd, or .txt files.
The utility comes with a neat and user-friendly interface split into two parts: one for browsing through files and folders, and the other for displaying the documents intended for conversion. Once the files are added to the working area, you can change some settings before you start printing: you can rotate your documents, select specific pages for printing, and add a personal watermark to the newly created files. You can also set the naming scheme, adjust the quality and resolution, or secure the resulting files with passwords.
In addition to working with PDF documents, PDF24 Creator can also be used as a screen capture utility. You may not even know that because this feature can't be accessed from the program's menu; the only way to access it is to left-click on the tray icon. As with most other screen capture tools, you have the option to capture the entire screen, an active window, a specific area, etc.
To sum up, this app works as a PDF printer, merger, splitter, and converter. Additionally, the program enables you to directly send documents via email or fax; and what's also great is that it is free.
