PDFill FREE PDF Tools is a software suite for working with the Portable Document Format.

PDFill FREE PDF Tools is a tool suite for Windows that aims to make life easier for anyone who works regularly with PDF files. PDF stands for Portable Document Format and is a file format designed by Adobe to make it easy to create and present documents that contain text and objects in a way that is independent of the software, hardware and operating system that you use.

PDFill FREE PDF Tools is freeware. It is free for both personal and commercial use, and you can use it as often and as much as you like without restriction. The suite includes 15 distinct tools intended to help you create, modify and convert your PDF files as well as the objects that they comprise.

All of these tools are accessed from a single window. The user interface overall is simple and intuitive. It was, however, created during the Windows XP era and has not been updated since. Therefore, the UI may look outdated and even a bit clunky from the perspective of the modern computer user.

The conversion tools include image to PDF, PDF to image and PostScript file to PDF. Supported image types include BMP, GIF, JPG, PNG, TIFF and WMF. You have the option to add watermarks to your PDF files, and these can be added via stylized text or image, and all of the abovementioned image file formats are supported in this case as well. PDFill FREE PDF Tools even includes a basic scanner that you can use to access physical and virtual scanners in order to input images as is or as PDF.

A merge tool lets you combine multiple PDF documents into one. There is also a tool to split, reorder and delete pages with a PDF. You can encrypt your PDF documents either via a master password or user passwords. Tools exist to rotate and crop pages, reformat multiple pages into one, add complex headers and footers and create transparent images. You can also add meta information to a PDF file as well as delete, flatten and list form fields.

Note that this program requires GhostScript. GhostScript is free, but for licensing reasons, PDFill FREE PDF Tools cannot include it. It can, however, fetch it and install for you. You can also download and install it manually. Some reviews list this as a negative as if it some nefarious item, but GhostScript is just an interpreter for the Portable Document Format markup language offered under a GNU license.
