Universal Document Converter allows converting documents and images between various formats. It is a virtual printer that allows converting documents and images among PDF, JPEG, TIFF and other file formats. As long as that file can be printed, it can also be converted to another format using this handy utility.

Its latest version supports 8 output formats: PDF, JPEG, TIFF, PNG, GIF, PCX, DCX or BMP. I’d say that this is currently a disadvantage, as outputting to additional formats such as DOC, DOCX, TXT or RTF can be needed quite often. Anyway, the number of supported input formats is much larger, as it basically supports any file that allows printing. Since it acts as a virtual printer, it is also very easy-to-use. Converting files will take only a few mouse clicks and can be performed with ease even by complete beginners.

Universal Document Converter offers plenty of handy additional options and features. For example, it enables you to combine documents as it supports creating multipage documents from files of various types in mere seconds. It also lets you assign a graphic or text watermark to your documents or password-protect the output PDF files. Cropping and resizing possibilities are also available, letting you control the margins and borders of the output files.

To sum it all up, this handy tool is great for converting any kind of printable file to PDF documents or to images, as it’s both easy-to-use and feature-rich.
