PDF24 Creator enables you to create PDF files from any printable document, extract pages from PDFs, and create self-signed certificates. It has advanced settings that can be quickly figured out.
Swap pages across different files
The application is wrapped in a user-friendly interface with a built-in file explorer that lets you open a file, re-arrange pages or image frames (e.g. GIF animations), rotate and insert blank pages, as well as swap pages across different files.
Customize the PDF appearance and metadata
You can preview documents, edit names, send files via fax or email, or extract text to file (TXT format). Before saving files as PDF, you can customize general properties about the PDF quality, standard, page auto-rotation, color model and conversion, web optimization, page range, and metadata (author, title, subject, keywords).
Apply document security and configure image options
Moreover, you can password-protect the PDF using the 128-bit security algorithm and manage user permissions, set the color, gray, mono image resolution and compression, adjust the JPEG quality, embed text watermarks, use digital paper, insert signatures, as well as pick files to prepend and append.
Save to PDF and other file types
It's possible to export just one document or all of them, or to merge multiple files into a single PDF. Apart from PDF, the files can be exported to PostScript (PS), EPS, Printer Command Language (PCL), PNG, JPEG, BMP, PCX, TIFF, PSD or TXT file type. Furthermore, you can create and manage self-signed certificates, as well as create and save multiple profiles with different settings.

To sum it up, PDF24 Creator provides you with a simple and effective solution for creating PDF documents, and it can be handled with ease by anyone.
