We generally have to convert specific files and file extensions for clients that may not have the program or the software to open or view certain file types. Too make things easier for your file conversions, here is a list of converters we have found to be quite useful!
- Online Converter – Gives you free access to converting files that are audio, document, ebook, image, video and others types, into numerious options. Select the converter of choice, upload your file or enter a URL to convert, and click. The app does the rest and you download your finished converted file. If you sign up you also get the options of sending files as email attachements and having a user panel.
The image converter provides options to convert images into BMP, EPS, GIF, HDR/EXP, JPG, PNG, SVG, TGA, TIFF, WBMP, and WebP. Handy if you don’t have Photoshop or another image program at your fingertips.
The ebook converter lets you select target formats, converting to ePub, FB2, LIT, LRF, MOBI, PDB, PDF, and TCR.
The document converter allows you to convert scanned documents, faxes, screenshots and photos into editable and searchable text, converting it into DOC, Flash, HTML, ODT, TXT, or PDF files.
- Online OCR – Using OCR (Optical Character Recognition) this app converts your scan, fax, or screenshot, into a file that can be edited, formatted, searched, indexed, automatically translated or converted to speech. It will keep the layout and formatting, and supports PDF, GIF, BMP, JPEG, TIFF or PNG as input, and gives you DOC, PDF, TXT, or RTF as an output. This app will rotate pages, and support lo-res photos, all while working online, keeping your data secure and confidential. Again, just browse, select the format and click!
- Print What You Like – Tired of printing web pages only to find your printout is full of empty space and ads? You won’t be fooled by the name, print exactly what you want from any website. This free online editor lets you format any web page by changing the font sizes and type and removing the background. Save snippets of pages and compile together in one document.
- Swiffy – Google just introduced in their Google Labs a way to convert your Flash SWF files to HTML5, allwoing you to reuse Flash content on devices without a Flash player (e.g., iPhones and iPads.) Although taking a complete Flash-driven website into this converter will not generate a completely redone website, it does well for advertisements and banner ads as well as animations.
