    Hello,

    You do not necessarily invest in PDF creator. There is a free software called Primo PDF which is equally good. You may Google search for "Primo PDF" and you will get first in the results this software. Millions of people are using it. You can download it free.

    I would suggest MS Office Word 2007+ ... You can save as a document to .PDF with word ... In case you want to merge or split PDF files, you can use the online software ilovepdf.com ...

    Nothing can beat Nitro PDF.

    Its like the Photoshop for PDF creation! (of course, there's also Adobe's Acrobat, but thats too costly)

    Hi,

    I'm usually quite happy with OpenOffice. But if you need something more advanced (graphically speaking) then Scribus is a free desktop publishing application that's doing a really great job. Scribus.net - I've used it in the past to produce fliers and such.

    Use Adobe PRO, I believe they have an online version which is cheaper. Also Google docs has PDF's now I think. But if you want the whole tool DO use Adobe PRO. Can't beat that..

    Hello,

    I think it really depends which functions you need in your PDF creator software.

    You want to create PDFs?
    Do you want to protect your ebooks? If so, what kind of protection you want to have?
    Do need PDF software to integrate with other programs/software?
    Do you work on huge documents and/or you need to integrate many documents together?
    How flexible and extensible you want it to be?
    Etc.

    If its Yes to all of the above than Adobe is your solution. If not, search for tools that'll cover your needs.

    All depends what you want the software to do.

    If it's simply to covert documents into pdf format then, as has been said above, you can use free software such as PrimoPDF.

    However, if you want the versatility to edit/merge pdf's then I would go with Nitro PDF.

    Unless you're earning big bucks, I personally wouldn't waste your money on software when there are good, free alternatives out there. So, be absolutely clear about what you want to achieve.

    I am using Nitro PDF creator,
    I think this one is best.
    Otherwise Office 2010 is a good supporter also to create pdf files.

    The best PDF creation software is Adobe Acrobat Hands down. Now if you want low value alternative then try out Nitro PDF,
    That should get your job done.
