All Free PDF Converter is a multipurpose PDF utility which provides PDF file converter, PDF splitter and merger, and also helps to extract text from scanned images or PDF files. You can even set password protection for your PDF files using this software. Thus, only authorized person will be able to open your PDF files.
With the help of its splitter merger features, multiple PDF files can be merged together and a large PDF file can be divided into separate small PDF files. This ensures you do not need separate PDF Splitter and PDF merger software. Using its PDF converter features, you can convert a PDF file to image file or Image to PDF or even PDF to text file.

How To Use This Free PDF File Converter Software?
First of all, download and install this freeware (around 7 MB in size) on your PC. I have placed download link at the end of this review. While installing this freeware, it will ask you to install third-party tools, which you can ignore with the help of Decline button.
On its interface, different PDF utilities are available, which help to perform tasks as per your needs. Have a look at the important utilities:
PDF to Image:
If you have to convert your PDF document to png, tiff, gif, jpeg, bmp, HTML5, emf, etc. format, then this utility is helpful. For multipage PDF file, it will provide separate images for each PDF page. Interesting part in this tab is that you can select page ranges (for example, from 5 to 10) to convert input PDF file and can also set DPI (Dots Per Inch) for any selected output format.
PDF to TXT:
This is one of the useful utility of this pdf file converter software which helps to extract text from PDF pages. Text can be extracted as plain text file or you can extract it to create a word document.
PDF Merger and Splitter:
These are two different utilities available on its interface. If you have to merge multiple single page or multipage PDF files to create a single PDF file, then PDF merger is helpful.
On the other hand, a large PDF file containing thousands of pages can be splitted into different PDF files using PDF splitter utility. To split a PDF file, you can set a fix range (like split after every 10 pages), or can set page range (1-3, 8-13, 20-27, etc.). For both utilities, you can set destination location for output as well.
Scan to PDF/ JPG to PDF:
The main purpose of this utility is to scan paper documents, images, etc., and convert them to PDF file to send it to people. But a scanner is required. Or else, you can use this utility to convert any image file (like tiff, jpeg, gif, png, ico, etc.) to a PDF file.
Purpose of this utility is to extract text from a scanned PDF file, so that you can save that text as plain text file or as word document. But, it didn’t work well for me, as extracted text was not of any use. You can try it yourself, if it works fine. Otherwise, you can try some other OCR software.
To apply a digital signature to your PDF file or to simply set password protection for that file, this utility is quite useful. Do note that it will create a new file which will be password protected. Original file will remain as it is after applying password. So you have to delete original file after processing.
All Free PDF Converter is handy software if you ever need any of these tools to process your PDF files. It is much better than many other PDF tools, which provide only one or two of these utilities. It worked absolutely fine for me, except its OCR feature. Overall, it is definitely a good PDF suite to have on your PC.
