Universal Document Converter is a software tool that allows you to convert any printable document into PDF or into various graphical formats, such as BMP, JPEG, TIFF, PNG, and GIF. The program installs a virtual printer driver in your system, which makes conversion tasks as easy as printing any document. Besides, the program offers many parameters for you to configure and get more accurate results.

The program includes a practical tutorial which illustrates in four simple steps how to convert your documents. Besides, Universal Document Converter adds new command ribbons to Microsoft Office programs such as Word and Excel. This allows you to convert your documents into any of the supported formats in an even easier way, and provides shortcuts for quick conversions into PDF, JPG, and TIFF formats. Actually, since the program installs a system-wide printer driver, you can convert documents from any application which provides printing capabilities.

Once you decide to convert a document using Universal Document Converter’s printer, you may want to configure various relevant parameters. To mention the most important ones, you can select the output format, its color depth, the page size and orientation, the output location, the file name, and a post-processing action. Besides, you can include textual or graphical watermarks in your resulting documents, and configure and apply some crop and resize parameters to them. Finally, you can also save your settings for future use to save time.

In conclusion, Universal Document Converter offers a practical and easy-to-use solution to convert any printable document or file into a PDF or image file. As a disadvantage, I would say that the program's cost is a bit higher than that of a similar tool.
