Hi guys,

I am looking for a program to do basic PDF editing.  I need to:

 

  • Add multiple PDF's together to make one PDF
  • Split particular pages of one PDF into a separate PDF document
  • If possible, add a signature (jpeg) to a PDF

That's about it.  Nothing fancy, just basic stuff. Does anyone have a good (free if possible) program they have used and can recommend?

Cheers

I have used Microsoft Word to do all the layout and then use save as pdf.   The result has been good

PDFCreator along with PDFARchitect works, but BE CAREFUL with the installer. It installed a bunch of adware and crapware if you like it. I had a brand new laptop and that installation messed up windows so badly it needed to be re-imaged. I also found it problematic at home so I've gone with FreePDF, which doesn't let you edit but lets you print to a PDF virtual printer.

freitasm: Oh, wait... Is this for Windows Phone or Windows? Have you posted in the correct forum?



Sorry guys, wrong forum - my bad.  Should be windows PC, not windows phone.

I use word to PDF a lot, but there are times I need to add PDF's together into one, so I can fax it straight from my email (Our fax provider will send multiple attachments as multiple faxes).

Moved to correct forum. That's why I ask people to make sure they post in correct forums - we can't help when there's much confusion!

NitroPDF is still my vote.
