How To Make Money With Ebook Publishing!

PDF Software Reviews

There are two essential pieces of software required before you begin to create your best selling ebook. The first of those is some sort of a word processor. Microsoft Word, and Open Office are two examples.

You will also need some way to change your word document into a PFD (short for Portable Document Format). The price you pay for a PDF converter can range from absolutely free, to as much as $500. But in my opinion, paying that sort of money is unnecessary for the general home user.

Software for creating a PDF is given a rating, with 5 stars being as good as it gets. Assessments are made on a variety of factors.

  • value for money (if purchased)
  • File size created
  • Links transposed correctly (including TOC)
  • Original formatting retained
  • Ease of use
  • Support given

Free PDF Creators

Let’s look at some of the online PDF creators first. These are simple to use. Just send your word or RTF document to them, and you get back the PDF via email. That is the only thing Im NOT so happy about, giving out my email address. I have had it sold to lists too many times to be completely trusting of someone who will give me something for FREE, and only needs my email address to do it. Thats said, the ones reviewed here have never sent me spam, or constant email offers to upgrade to a paid version.

Print to PDF

This is where you install some software, that goes into your “Print” option of a document. You will often see this software referred to as a “printer driver, printer subsytem, or virtual printer. But whatever the name, they all mean the same thing. How they work, is that you open your Word document, and use the print button. You then select the software from your list of printers. There is both paid and free versions of this type of PDF creators.

You can also get a PDF Creator, as opposed to a PDF printer. The difference is that with the creator, you have a GUI (Graphical User Interface). In other words, you open the program up, to work with your documents, rather than just having an “invisible” print driver.

Here we review both types, to see how they stack up.
