Smart PDF Converter is a versatile software tool that allows you to convert your PDF documents into a variety of other formats. These include DOC (MS Word), JPEG, HTML, XLS (MS Excel), PPT (MS PowerPoint), and more. The program allows you to convert multiple PDF files at once as well as to tweak the output settings of every supported output format.

Smart PDF Converter offers a simple and intuitive interface, designed to be used by both novice and advanced users. Basically, you just need to add one or more source PDF files for conversion and select the output format and destination, and then you are ready to start the conversion process. However, you may also want to tweak the advanced parameters of the selected output format, if you happen to be an expert user or you simply have specific requirements. Moreover, the program includes a built-in PDF viewer which allows you to preview any source PDF file you are planning to convert. The viewer allows you to navigate through the pages of the PDF and to adjust the zoom level. The program is designed to keep the original PDF layout untouched (formatting, graphics, tables, etc.) as much as possible.

As for the advanced settings, the program allows you to tweak a set of parameters for each supported output format, as stated before. Being one of the most commonly used output formats, for DOC documents you can select the conversion method (flowing, exact, no images, or simple text), the OCR method (auto, always, or never) and the automatic page rotation. For XLS spreadsheets you can choose the Excel sheet distribution, the tables lining-up, the formatting, and the OCR methods. Another common output format is JPEG. For this format you can set the output resolution, its quality, and the JPEG properties (progressive, optimized, disable color subsampling, and/or gray scale). And the same happens with all the other supported formats.

To conclude, Smart PDF Converter allows you to convert PDF documents into various other popular formats, which you can then edit and change in many ways.
