I Love PDF

Every tool you need to work with PDFs in one place. 

Every tool you need to use PDFs, at your fingertips. All are 100% FREE and easy to use! Merge, split, compress, convert, rotate, unlock and watermark PDFs with just a few clicks.

I don’t necessarily “love” PDF. I love chocolate chip cookies.  But I Love PDF is the name of our site pick today. So, gotta love it! This site will appeal to those of you who work with PDF file quite often and who find some of the free PDF readers lacking.

Now, first of all, if you have Windows 10 (any version) you can create and read PDF files with ease. But, Windows 10’s PDF feature is not as robust as those found in some of the better PDF readers, like Foxit Reader (free version), Sumatra, and others. Read more about creating and reading PDF in Windows 10 without third-party programs of any kind.

Recently,  while looking for something else, I stumbled upon a site that looked interesting,  This morning I finally had a few minutes to take a look at it and test some of its features. Needless to say, I was very impressed, otherwise, it wouldn’t be named a Cloudeight Site Pick!

The number of useful free PDF services that this site offers, combined with its speed (but remember site speed is dependent on your internet connection speed too) got my attention.

As I’ve mentioned, the site is called “I Love PDF” (more correctly ilovepdf.com ) and it offers a number of free services without requiring that you register and without any discernible tricks, tricks or subterfuge. The site appears to be financially supported by non-intrusive ads and by the products/services it sells.

But all of its PDF tools are free to use and do not require registration. Here’s a list of the free PDF tools you’ll find on I Love PDF.

    I’ve been using this site for years and it’s never done me wrong! Great pick.

    Not being very knowledgeable about the working of PDF, I wonder if one of the many options here will create fillable pdf forms?

    This sounds like a wonderful resource. However, it’s not helping me with my current problem, opening a scrap (powerpoint 2003) file. The current Powerpoint program will not open this, and it’s an important file that I need to open and hopefully convert to a current program.
    Thank you for all you do, and the great resources you find. You are the best.

    I used the online version to do a page rotation for one file and then to merge several separate pages into one pdf file. It worked well… almost too well! There was a link on the webpage to download the work it had done, but I did not have to click the link. It just ‘pushed’ the two completed files to my downloads folder before I had clicked on the link. That seems a little scary to me. How can it put files on my computer without my initiating and approving that action?

      I am not sure what you mean by “online” version. The only version I see is online and that’s what we recommended. Are we talking about the same site? http://www.ilovepdf.com ?

      We tested several features of the public version (i.e. not the one you sign up for)… when we finished editing the files or merging files, we were always presented with a download button to click – not files were “pushed” anywhere. Just to be sure, I went back today and tested Word to PDF and the feature you’re referring too – merge files. On both of the tests, a download button was presented and nothing was pushed – and no attempts were made to push anything to my PC.

      I don’t see anything wrong with the way ILovePDF processes the actions requested or in the way it displays a download button when the process/processes is/are completed.

      I merged 4 PDF documents just a minute ago to see if I saw what you saw and I did not. What I did see was this – a clearly labeled download button.

      The file downloaded to my computer after clicking the file was the merged PDF file with the name of ilovepdf-merged.pdf – but the file name was editable. I renamed it “merged.pdf” and opened it. The 3 PDF documents were merged perfectly and the merged PDF doc was 125 pages.

      I am not seeing anything wrong here.

    Thank you for your quick reply!

    Yes it was the same site. And, yes, I saw the very same link as you posted in your reply. The download was not only started but completed before I clicked the download link for both of the little ‘jobs’ that I had it do. I was very surprised (unbelieving?) the first time it happened (rotation of a single page pdf) and so I was watching more carefully for the second job (merge of about 6 or 7 pages of pdf files) and the same thing happened. Now, maybe my wife put a little extra something in my coffee that morning… I don’t know….

    They also offer a desktop (offline) version of their software. The link for it is in the top right corner of their front page. The graphic for the link is a black-and-white picture of a computer monitor with a ‘down’ arrow in it. That is why I specified that I was using the online version. Sorry, I was trying to prevent confusion, not create it.

    1. Bob Crozier

      Oh! And yes, I was using the ‘public’ version as well: I was not signed up or signed in with any kind of an account.

    I still feel that uploading PDF to server are not safe if those are being stored on servers.
    There are other tools available in market which do not upload file and do everything in browser like this one https://www.doozytools.com/pdf-tools where you can Merge or Split PDF without upload.

      You’re still uploading it to the server in your browser, just like all the other online PDF tools. There is nothing private on the Internet. You’re welcome to your opinion but all online PDF conversion sites upload your PDF files to a server via your browser. How else do you think you can edit the document?

      1. TheJimIT

        Thanks for reply.
        I am referring tools which are actually using client side Java-script which executes in browser itself so file doesn’t require to be uploaded and all processing is done in our device only. Recently I came across to it so thought to share.

        1. infoave Post author

          We will agree to disagree. The site says it’s all done on the client-side. I have my doubt. JavaScript is used everywhere, it sure does not suggest privacy. So. as I said, you can use whatever you like. I will remain skeptical. Additionally, the site’s PDF capabilities are minimal.
