Frequently Asked Questions

Check out these commonly asked questions and answers about our service. Please feel free to contact us if you have any additional questions.

Can I convert images to PDF? Are there other document formats that I can convert to PDF?

Yes, you can convert JPGs to PDFs. You can also convert Word documents (DOC, DOCX), Excel files (XLS, XLSX), and PowerPoint (PPT, PPTX) files to PDF.

What is the difference between the DOC, DOCX, and PDF file formats?

DOC is an older Microsoft Word file format, while DOCX is the newer version. DOCX offers better compatibility, features, and file recovery options compared to DOC. PDF is a platform-independent format designed to preserve document formatting and appearance. It is commonly used for sharing documents that should look the same on different devices and operating systems. Unlike DOC and DOCX, PDF files are not easily editable but can be viewed using various software. That said, you can easily edit PDFs using PrintFriendly's PDF Editor.

Are my files secure? Do you keep or review any of my files?

Every file uploaded is safeguarded with the use of SSL encryption. We do not review or keep any data that has been processed beyond the time needed for you to download any converted files.

Is it free to convert a Word document to a PDF file or PDF file to Word document?

For now, converting Word documents to PDF files and vice versa is completely free. We may introduce paid features in the near future.
