Convert almost any documents to PDF format in a click

pdfFactory is a straightforward tool that allows you to create PDF files from just about any Windows application.

As with many similar utilities, it works by installing a virtual printer driver. You then open whichever document you'd like to convert, choose the Print option, select the pdfFactory printer, and the program launches to display your file. You may save the document to PDF, or send it as an email attachment in a couple of clicks.

If you need more control, though, there's plenty on offer here. Browse the pdfFactory printer preferences, for instance, and you're able to set the file resolution to anything from 150 to 1,440 dpi, or any custom value somewhere in between. And there are options to set your JPEG compression level, and downsample images to the resolution of your choice.

You can also set details like the PDF file metadata (Title, Author, Subject or Keywords). Security options allow you to encrypt the document, or restrict how it's used (prevent text and images being copied, for instance). You get to choose which fonts may be embedded in the file, and there's an option to convert URLs into clickable links, where you're even able to define exactly how they'll look (colour, border and line style, and so on).

Please note, this trial version of the program will add a watermark to the bottom of every page in the finished PDF file. Once you've purchased a licence for the program and entered its details, this will disappear.

What's new in 5.15?

- fixed a slowdown or crash that sometimes occurred when content is printed to FinePrint
- fixed a crash that sometimes occurred after PDF files are printed from FinePrint to a physical printer
made corrections to the Italian translations

Verdict:

A useful PDF creator, perhaps a little expensive but with rather more file tweaking options than some of the competition

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
