PDF (Portable Document Format) is a open standard document format created in 1993 by Adobe Systems. It is a device independent file format which means it can work on all platforms like HTML. It is also resolution independent. A PDF document displays text, fonts, images and vector graphics in 2D. The recently developed Acrobat 3 can now display embedded 3D documents.
PDF conversion service providers offer Conversion of documents to PDF format which is possible from most other formats like, Bitmap (.bmp), Excel (.xls) , FrameMaker (.fm, .mif) , PowerPoint (.ppt) , Rich Text Format (.rtf) , Text (.txt) , TIFF (.tif) , Word (.doc) , WordPerfect (.wpd GIF (.gif) , HTML (.htm, .html.) , JPEG (.jpg) , PageMaker (.pm, .pm6, .p65, .pmd, .pmt) , PhotoShop (.psd) , PNG (.png) , and PostScript (.ps, .prn).
It is believed that more than 500 million copies of the free Adobe Acrobat reader from Adobe is already downloaded and thus PDF documents can be opened in most places. As these PDF documents cannot be edited by others it is quite secure and down loads fast. Service providers who convert PDF documents send the files to clients via e-mail or send a URL to the client from where they can down load all the converted files. The main reason for PDF conversion is due to the consistency of the documents that is always maintained regardless of the software or hardware in use.
