Create PDF files from various file formats, such as images, PPT, Excel, and Word. Free to use online, no installation required.

The PDF format was created to fulfill the dream of a paperless workspace. PDFs can be read and processed on just about any system, so it should be a standard practice to save PDF to and from other file types. As the most popular online PDF software, we offer a solution to this in the form of an all-in-one free PDF creator.

How Do I Create a PDF File for Free?

  1. Choose a file and upload it to our PDF Creator.

  2. The conversion to PDF format should start right away.

  3. Download or save the created PDF.

  4. Continue to modify the file if needed. Otherwise you’re done!


Create PDFs from multiple documents for free

Which Formats Can I Create PDF From?


Smallpdf can save Microsoft Office and image files to PDF. Therefore, you can freely use our PDF creator online 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, i.e., convert JPG and Word to PDF simultaneously. There’s no limit on the number of documents that can be created to PDF format when using the batch processing mode. On the result page, you’ll be given the option to download files together in a ZIP file.

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 you can install our free Chrome extension. With this, you can instantly get to all the tools you need without having to search the web. The extension will enlist all available tools once selected, as well as when a PDF document is opened.

Aside from the online PDF converter, you can also merge PDF files, split them up, or even create your very own electronic signature. You can check them all out via our homepage.

PDF files can also be saved as other file formats. Whether you need to edit the content or submit these documents to another party, the PDF creator can always do just this.
