Welcome to PS2PDF
Welcome to ps2pdf.com
We are the web's premier online converter of Portable
Document Format (PDF)
files. Our site allows you to make a PDF compatible file without
loading any special software. All it takes to
generate a PDF compatible file is to upload a postscript compatible
file to our web site and then click on the resulting
link. See the FAQ
page for more details.
Our aim is to make it simple for light and
moderate users to generate PDF files. For heavy use we recommend the
freely available AFPL Ghostscript . This is
the same software we use behind our web pages. We also recommend GSview as the best way to view and
edit PDF files. Files converted on this site are also viewable
with Adobe Acrobat® software.
