Create PDFs from multiple documents for free

Which Formats Can I Create PDF From?


Smallpdf can convert Microsoft Office and image files to PDF. As a result, you can use our PDF creator online for free to convert Microsoft Word documents, as well as Excel and PPT slides. JPG, BMP, GIF, TIFF, and PNG images can also be dragged and dropped into the toolbox. If you want to create multiple PDF documents, you can either do this one by one or sign up for a Pro subscription, where you can batch convert as many documents as you’d like.

For the latter, you can also mix the file types. That means you can drag and drop a mix of Word, JPG, and PPT files into the tool and convert them simultaneously to individual PDF files. There’s no limit on the number of documents that can be converted to PDF format. When using the batch processing mode, you can download all files in a collective ZIP file on the result page.

How to Create PDF Files on the Go


As an online service, you can quickly access Smallpdf through a Google search, from a bookmark, or via our free Chrome extension. This lets you quickly access all the tools you need without searching the web. Once selected or when you open a PDF, the extension will display all accessible tools. Aside from the online PDF converter, you can merge PDF files, split them up, or even create your very own electronic signature.
