PostScript files (PS) usually contain vector graphics, text, images and other elements. The problem is that it is not a familiar format, at least when you compare it to images or PDF files. Inexperienced users may have difficulties when encountering such a file. In this case, you can use PDFCreator to convert that file to PDF or various image formats. It works fast and it features straightforward options. Besides PS files, you can target any printable file to convert to PDF.
You will not have to pay for the software. You can use it for an unlimited period, without any restrictions. During the setup process, you can manually select what components or languages to install or you can select a full or minimal installation.
You may load PS files directly on the software's interface and click the print option on the toolbar to convert it. A new window will show up, where you can change the file's creation and modification dates and author, insert a subject and keywords. With the buttons on this window's bottom edge, you can save the file in various formats, including PDF, PNG, JPG, TIFF, EPS and many more. You can also attach the converted file to an email message, immediately after the process. Instead of the Save option, you need to click the Email one. You may also access a general settings panel, from this window or the main interface. The panel contains a wide range of options for adjusting the Save or Print parameters, make changes to each individual output format and much more.
The loaded PostScript files will be listed on the main window, so you can add as many as you want and the software will process all of them in order. The files in the list can be moved up or down in the list and you can merge them as well. You just need to select them and use the options on the toolbar. There is a second program, which comes with PDFCreator. It is called PDF Architect and you can use it to perform basic editing tasks on a PDF file. It is possible to copy or cut pages from a loaded PDF and paste them anywhere else in the same document.
The software is very easy to use. Converting PS files to PDF ones will take only a few seconds. Although the selected format, in the Open window, is PostScript, you can ignore this and load any printable file you want. PDFCreator will work just as well with any other format.
Unless you click the Wait button on the print window, it will keep popping up when you close it. If you have no idea how to access a PostScript file or you lack the means to open other types of files, PDFCreator will help you convert it to a familiar format.
