With support for batch processing, Advanced PDF Tools is a software utility which aid people in optimizing PDFs and customizing certain information.

Smooth setup and tabbed interface

The installation process you are required to go through does not take very long, as it does not come with any unpleasant surprises and does not last longer than a few seconds. After you are done with it, you come face to face with a pretty intuitive GUI, as it consists of several tabs for a quick access to all available parameters and a pane in which to view uploaded items.

Change information

This application enables you to input new information to one or multiple PDF files, such as title, subject, author, keywords, creator and modified date. Further customization is available, including the initial view (e.g. page only, bookmarks and pane, fullscreen mode etc.), magnification, page layout and start page number.

Optimize documents and save them to the HDD

It is possible to rotate pages, change their size and the margins dimensions, as well as remove metadata, embedded thumbnails, comments, bookmarks, private data and form actions so as to optimize uploaded PDFs. You can upload an XML file and append it as metadata, adjust color compression and quality levels.

Last but not least, you can save the new PDF files to a custom location on the hard drive, by simply clicking the “Change” button and selecting the output directory.

Bottom line

To conclude, Advanced PDF Tools is a useful piece of software, dedicated to both beginners and highly experienced people. It runs without burdening the computer’s performance and without popping up errors, hanging or freezing.
