PDFCreator lets you convert any printable document to PDF. 
Either within the application or by printing directly from the original document. At the same time you can convert PDF files to image formats, like PDF to JPG, PDF to PNG and PDF to TIFF.


Our PDF converter supports the use of tokens. They can be used as placeholders for certain values, like today’s date, your username and many more. If you print many similar documents, tokens can be a great tool to improve and speed up your workflow.

fingerprintDigital Signatures

If you need to sign a document and send it across the globe, it takes a lot of time. You can use digital signatures to speed up this process: Sign the document digitally with PDFCreator. This verifies you as author and you won’t have to print and scan the document.


We want to make PDFCreator as accessible as possible for everyone around the world. Thanks to our large community of translators it is therefore available in many different languages. In case your native language is not available yet, check out translate.pdfforge.org to see how you can help translating.

save_altAutomatic Saving

Auto-save allows you to have a fully automated PDF printer. It lets you skip all interaction with the application and saves the files with your predefined file name at your preferred location. Additionally, you can automate your workflow even more with the help of user tokens.

archiveArchive-Ready with PDF/A

PDFCreator is able to create PDF/A files. By applying strict standards on what can and must be included in the PDF. The PDF/A standard ensures that your documents can be archived for years or decades and will be readable when you need them.

merge_typeMerge and rearrange

If you have multiple documents that you would like to combine, PDFCreator offers the possibility to merge them into a single PDF file. For this, the order of the documents can easily be rearranged.

securitySecure your PDFs

PDFCreator allows you to secure your documents against unauthorized access or modifications. You can restrict access to your PDFs, require a password to open the document or restrict printing and modifying your document. Adding a digital signature adds to the security by verifying you as the author.

dvrCOM interface
PDFCreator comes with a COM interface that allows you to control it from your application or script. You can wait for a print job, define where it will be saved, merge it with other print jobs and much more. As far as we know, no other PDF converter freeware allows you to go this far.

Actions allow you to go even further. You can add cover pages to your document, upload your files via FTP, send an e-Mail or even call your own custom script to further process the files.


The CS-Script action allows you to implement a custom script in C# to process the print job. You have the possibility to work with the entire print job data (you are accessing the actual job object) right before and immediately after the conversion. All with the 
full functionality available in C#.
