DocuFreezer 1.1
DocuFreezer lets you batch convert Office documents automatically.

If you want to present your documents in a format anyone can read, converting them to PDF (or even an image file like PNG or JPG) is the way to go, particularly if you’re looking to provide a non-editable copy for others to look at (or for you to archive).

These days, outputting files to PDF is pretty straightforward – apps like Microsoft Office let you do so direct from the program itself, while the likes of Nitro Reader let you output any file in PDF format.

But what if you want to convert a large number of Microsoft Office documents – and not necessarily in the same format – quickly? DocuFreezer is your answer – like its sibling, Print Conductor – it’s designed to batch process documents of types quickly and automatically via a drag-and-drop interface.

The main drawback is that DocuFreezer requires Microsoft Office 2010 or later to be installed in order to utilise its APIs to perform the document conversion. If you’re simply looking to convert PDFs to an image format – JPG, TIF or PNG – then everything you need is included.

Launch DocuFreezer and it supplies a single window with all the options you need: you can drag files directly on to the program window or manually select files or a folder of files to process. Pick your destination format from the drop-down menu, and click the Settings button to fine-tune each format’s settings. In the case of PDF, choose PDF-A to omit features ill-suited to long-term archiving, such as linking (rather than embedding) fonts.

Finally, choose an output folder, click Start and let DocuFreezer do the rest. It’s not particularly quick, but it’s fully automated and once done your converted documents will be ready to distribute. There are a few clunky moments – you can’t create a new folder when selecting the destination for example – but if you’re looking for a tool to automate a repetitive process, DocuFreezer is worth checking out.

Note this is free for personal use only – commercial licenses cost $49 per license. Commercial licenses are available.

Verdict:

A handy tool for quickly converting documents to PDF or image, but the requirement for Office 2010 limits its appeal.

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.
