Pros: This software is SO quick and easy to use online. I produce a lot of pdf's for work that need to be emailed out. By compressing the pdf's through smallpdf, they are smaller and faster to send. It uses a simple drag and drop interface and then can be downloaded for distribution. Documents can be uploaded from your pc, but also Dropbox and Google Drive.

A graphic designer I know did not believe that the compression tool would keep the quality and he was very pleasantly surprised when he saw that the quality of his document was not affected. The software is not limited to just compressing pdfs, but has the capacity to convert other document formats into pdfs and do other pdf functions like merging pdfs and signing them.

As well as compressing, Smallpdf can convert from pdfs into Word, Excel, Powerpoint and jpeg. The converted documents are quite respectable and editable; better than any other software I have used in the past.

We use the free version but the price of the pro version is relatively small and worth considering.

Cons: The free version only allows for 2 compression uses per hour. This is the same for other functions. It is workable, though.

Overall: This is a great suite of products that makes document management so easy.

Pros: Smallpdf is a complete solution for PDF files, being the most popular one the possibility to convert these to Microsoft Office files or images (and vice versa).

They also offer some editing tools, such as being able to merge or split different files, rotate them and even signing or unlocking files. Also, the compress tool is shockingly effective, reducing some files sizes by 90% with a barely noticeable loss on quality.

They also offer a desktop solution that is completely offline, being a lot cheaper than other tools in the market.

Cons: The only negative aspect I can think of is the lack of prepaid options. While it is possible to do two operations each hour for free, I can't justify paying a monthly fee when I may only need to convert no more than ten files weekly.

Overall: Smallpdf has been a handy tool to convert Microsoft Office files to PDF, as the current export option highly reduces image quality, and to compress files that are quite heavy.

My company publish a monthly catalog which is usually two or three heavy files, where I need to not just join these files but also heavily compress them and Smallpdf does it perfecly.

Pros: Ever since I used the free version in small pdf website I was convinced that this was one of the best pdf softwares available and I was totally right, it has every possible tools and gadgets for pdf editing and it is incredibly easy, its conversions are top notch and most of all it is really fast for pdf reading.

Cons: Something I really don't like about smallpdf is how limited the free version is on its website, you can convert only two files an hour, it almost convinced me not to buy it (but thanks god I did)

Overall: Small pdf is significantly cheaper than it's competitors and offers a quality product that is second to none, it is an incredible tool and has been amazing every since we started using it. I truly recommend it.

Pros: SmallPDF is the best pdf software ever, it is extremely easy to use for pdf converting or editing, it comes with every tool you might possibly need for working with pdfs and best of all at a really reasonable price, it is the whole package.

Cons: The only issue I might have with smallpdf (but that I really understand) is the fact that when working with large files the conversion process can take a long time. Also opening the software can take a longer time than with other ones.

Overall: I can't tell you enough how much I love this software, it has truly been a gamechanger for me, even for someone who doesn't want to pay for the software (even though is really cheap) its free version is amazing for pdf reading.

Pros: There are so many functions. We can convert Word, Excel, Powerpoint and JPG files to PDF and convert a PDF file to those formats. We mostly use SmallPDF to compress files. This is a great help when storage space is limited in some of the apps we use. We can also split, edit, rotate and eSign a PDF file.

Cons: I love everything about this tool, but there is one thing I would like to change. If a file is the smallest size after merging or converting and then compressing the file, we receive a message stating that the file cannot be compressed to a smaller size but we are not given the option to download the merged or converted file.

Pros: smallpdf is practically the same as the other similar programs that exist of this type, performs the same processes and in the same way being very easy to use (and with a very friendly environment), giving the options of cutting and pasting pdf, converting files pdf to other formats (word, excel. ppt jpeg), as well as to transform the files to pdf, number pages and in itself, all the same functions that the other programs have. However, it has a great advantage, and that is that the processing done to reduce the weight of the pdf files is really very good, since not only does this decrease, but it also maintains the resolution of the file as much as possible.

Cons: it does not have anything in particular that needs to improve or that it is a disgrace compared to other similar programs.

Overall: smallpdf I met him in a casual way once I was doing postgraduate studies. On that occasion I did a job in pdf which contained images I weigh a lot more than allowed to attach to my mail, and looking in several forums to get to smalpdf and really was an incredible utility as it decreased the weight to half and still it looked very good. Truly one of the best tools to reduce the weight of pdf files.

Pros: SmalPdf is my secret weapon. No one in my office knows how to change file types - they ask me to do it, I go to Small pdf and in minutes it is done. It is very user-friendly, always faithful conversions. It is especially useful when you get an online pdf form that you are expected to print-fill in by hand-scan-send - nope, no one has time for that. Just turn it into a word doc with smallpdf, type your answers, save it as a pdf and email- done! They take so many file types - xcel,PPT, Word, Jpeg, you can merge, split - it can do anything. I have a good print to pdf program but still prefer to use this one

Cons: I do not have a paid account although if I needed to convert lots of files it would be totally worth it. The 2 doc per hour max works for me but not for others - I say, pay for it if it bugs you.

Overall: Quick , easy, flexible and freemium. If you are dealing with pdfs this is your solution.

Pros: The best thing about smallpdf is that the interface is neat and tidy. I have mostly used it for converting jpg images to pdf and merging pdfs. Unlike the other web-based services, their website is pretty clean. I would give some points to the aesthetics of the website too :-) !

Apart from that, it gets the essential jobs done. Few minutes left before the deadline of homework? Just take pictures using phone, send 'em to laptop and drag and drop the images to smallpdf. Saved me many times.

Cons: The paid version does not really make much sense to me after the release of the free mobile apps from adobe like adobe reader DC and adobe sign. Especially after adobe scan was released, it really solved the problems of taking pictures, merging and creating a pdf document in a more integrated way. These apps have recently substituted smallpdf because they are more accessible from my phone and tablet.

Overall: Overall, I used to be a regular user of smallpdf. Now, there are other easy-to-use apps to get these jobs done. I am not sure whether they have app of smallpdf.

Pros: The capability to edit text, add and modify images and forms, draw and add specific features in a PDF file, all this is done easily, you just select the option, add the files, edit what you need, and download the files, a very easy process. SmallPDF also brings the opportunity to compress files, which is a great feature for huge files like books or file with a lot of images, that you want to save for you or share, the process is the same, and a few seconds you your file compress in your computer.

Cons: I think that they must add more options to edit, the ones that exist are very simple, maybe they can add the option of make personal stickers and more option of figures to add, and also the possibility to add and modify tables.

Overall: Compressed and edit PDF files in a very easy way and without download a program or app.

Pros: 1. That I can upload a document and click convert and before I know it I have a pdf document staring at me.

2. Allows a user to perform more than one task: Convert PDF to word and Word to PDF, compress and merge several documents, and convert JPG to PDF and back

Cons: 1. When converting a file from word to PDf the name usually changes, it would be great if they maintained the original name of the document.

Overall: Did I mention that the merge PDF has no file limit - this is the best thing to ever happen to me!

Pros: 1.- Online application that does not require any type of installation.

2.- Its PDF file compression system is very good, managing to reduce the size of the files without losing quality.

3.- You have multiple options that allow you to work with PDF files, among the options you can; cut and paste files, rotate, add signature and the possibility of converting your pdf files to different format of office (word, ppt, excel).

4.- It also has a tool that allows you to create PDF files from xon files, word, ppt, jpeg and excel extension.

Cons: 1.- Perhaps the only problem is that to be able to use smallpdf you must always have access to the internet since it can only be used through a browser, which is somewhat inconvenient when you are traveling and you can not connect to an internet network.

Overall: In general, I used smallpdf when I had to create pdf files from scanned images or files, since it was the only easiest and fastest way to do this process. In addition, it used the comprehension function to reduce the weight of the files, since when containing images they were very large for the intranet of the company that worked previously, and when compressing with smallpdf the files turned out to be half the size and with a image quality similar to the original.

All your PDF needs solved with one interface!

Pros: 1. Ever since i started using small pdf i don't think so i have ever used any other site for any pdf related needs. Also, it has a large number of tools which take cares of all your pdf needs.

2. More than 15+ tools to compress, edit, merge, split and convert pdfs.

3. Integration with google drive and Dropbox makes it easier to find your cloud documents.

4. You can also sign your documents with your esignature.

Cons: 1. I dont think so there's any demerits just that in free version you can only do 2 compressions per hour.

2. Annoying is that it doesn't have any prepaid options available for premium functions.

Pros: I first came across smallpdf when I was looking for ways to compress PDF documents to upload to my websites. Keeping things small and fast is essential for web designers. Among the online tools that I discovered, the one offered by smallpdf turned out to be the most efficient. It was the fastest and the most capable to squeeze my documents to a really small size. I have occasionally used it to unlock PDFs or convert them to docx. In each case, the results were impressive.

Cons: smallpdf is free indeed, but for some time past the number of free runs has been limited. Nevertheless, smallpdf is definitely worth trying!

Overall: smallpdf is a very convenient tool because it is free, online and comprehensive, so you can have your PDF job done quickly and elegantly wherever you are without depending on a paid or desktop application.

Cons: I have absolutely nothing I dislike about smallPDF, it is extremely wonderful and has been lifesaver in our company.

Overall: What is not to love about SmallPDF? It is really fast, something that is usually a problem with pdf readers, it can be used to edit pdfs in many useful ways, it is truly amazing.

Pros: This tool is so simple! I love the way it can be understood by anyone, regardless of their level of familiarity with design tools. The fact that I can do so many things to a PDF file without having to pull up a design software is priceless. When optimized, the PDF files end up just like they were in full resolution, so no quality is lost whatsoever, only a bunch of MB! I don't use the rest of the converters as much as the optimize tool for PDF sizes, but they are also very helpful ways of making sure that any file you share is always recognized across any platform, without having to deal with tricky software to handle the format conversion.

Cons: I've only been using the free version, and there's a limited amount of things you can do with it. It will lock you out of the platform for about one hour after you reached your limit, so that can be a bit frustrating... I haven't been needing this as much as I should in order to pay for it, so I wait. But if I eventually find that I need to use it more, I would totally upgrade. It is a great, simple and helpful tool.

Overall: Using this to compress PDF files to less than 80% of their initial filesize!

Pros: You are able to edit pdf files for free without the paid version, which makes quickly file editing great. I have purchased the full version to be able to manipulate more files then the free version allows, and it is a better price than purchasing Adobe Writer.

Cons: The free version only allows you one edit ever so often (2 hours or so), but the paid version I have had no issues with besides it can be slow based on your internet connection, but that is to be expected.

Pros: Small pdf is a really complete tool, you can use it to mix pdfs and create large documents from smaller ones. It has so many great functions not just for file conversion (from jpg, powerpoint, docs, xlsx, xls to PDF or visceversa) it can edit them and most importantly split them and merge them which can come really handy.

Cons: Since you have to work online it can make our work connection really slow. There should be a downloadable application. In our country our internet connection is really slow so working with large files is really a pain.

Overall: I recommend this to everyone who needs a solid pdf editing tool, beware of the fact that it works online so you can rely on it only when you have an internet connection and it would be better if it is a good one too.

Pros: It has a free version and it is really easy to use. You can compress a PDF to smaller version for sharing it through email. Converting the most common files (MS Doc, PPT, Excel and JPG) into PDF is very simple and it comes very handy for my daily work.

Cons: The free version only allows 2 PDF conversions per hour. Compressing large files can take a long time and consume a lot of Internet bandwidth.

Overall: Amazing software for editing and compressing PDF files

Pros: In this app I can upload files to apply changes directly from my Google Drive and Dropbox, which is very helpful for my because I do not have to occupy storage in my computer, tablet or smartphone. All the process is easy and once the file is available I save again in my Drive or Dropbox to share or save for my own.

Cons: The private policy for me is compromised, becuase I do not know if they have the same policies of Google and Microsof, so I do not know what is the destination of the original file or if this is deleted once I do the process of conversion.

Overall: Awesome tool to edit, modify and convert files into PDF and all this do it through the cloud.

God, I love this so much!

Pros: Everything, converting, combining, splitting. Those are but a few options available.

We can't afford to spend money on the paid alternatives in PDF software. SmallPDF takes away a lot of financial stress I could say.

How many times I have helped a co-worker that accidentally saved a file as a PDF without a normal document format left..

This is a miracle tool!

Cons: Free version only has 2 charges per IP, would be nice to have a little more.

Pros: Quickest, easiest, best PDF (and other program) management software we have ever used - hands down! We use it every day. Boy, do these guys teach Adobe some tricks, OR WHAT??! And no, we have absolutely no affiliation with SmallPDF. Wish we did, though.

Cons: None so far. We have not found anything with the product or service that we can negatively criticize.

Pros: This software is incredibly versatile and helpful, I lost count of how many times I've used it and how many times I've suggested it to my coworkers. It helps you with a ton of little tasks that might not be easy to accomplish for less tech-savvy people.

Cons: Nothing, really. It is very reasonably priced and if you're a casual user, the free plan will let you do pretty much anything.

Overall: I love this tool

Pros: I use small pdf because we scan cdocuments into a system that redacts info automatically, which makes my pdf file much larger than it should be to email to our exec director. Small pdf is easy to use! I just upload the files and it makes it so I can email the files out with ease.

Cons: If the file is fairly large, it can take over an hour to compress, which also slows down the wifi for everyone else in the office.

Pros: SmallPDF is not jus a good PDF reader, it has so many useful tools. PDF merging and Splitting is great for both summarizing or presenting just a segment of information when needed. Also the fact that one can convert pdfs to other formats is really awesome.

Cons: Working with large documents can be a little bit troublesome, however this is just being picky, the software has not that many flaws.

Overall: Great PDF reader and multitask tool overall. I highly recommend it.

Pros: You can choose to use the free version or pay (the latter is integrated with dropbox, has no limit on file size, among other extras). You can create a pdf from images or a text file, you can pass a pdf to images, you can join files, compress and a long list of things you can do with one of the best tools that exist. In addition, the process is quite simple and fast (even more than in other similar pages), you select what you want to do, drag your file and only in a couple of seconds you have your new file ready to use.

Cons: I think that in general everything works great with smallpdf, I use it frequently when it is necessary to reduce the weight to a pdf to be able to attach it without problems to an email or in a virtual platform.

Pros: It does everything Adobe Reader can't do. Comes in handy when you need to convert/edit PDF files at the last minute.

Cons: When editing files, you have to create a text box to write anything. Also, the "Unlock PDF" tool doesn't actually unlock anything.

I am happy only using the free plan, but I would pay just because I love SmallPDF so much.
