!(*@#(*^!@#(*&!!!!!! It’s in the wrong file format! (How to convert file formats – pdf, png, docx, jpg, gif, flash, wmv, etc)
For one of the website I manage, we had to put up a new notice regarding an event this coming weekend on the splash page pronto…and someone was going to email me the pretty invitation graphic to put up. No problem, right? Just upload the jpg or gif or png file to the images folder on the server and then create a IMG SRC tag to display the graphic…
But of course, I get the graphic in….PDF format! Ugh. What now?
I go to one of my trusty file conversion sites and upload the file, designate the output format and wait for an email attachment with the new file!
I personally used , but another good service is . If you don’t find a specific output file type you want, just go to the other one. Don’t forget that you can also covert video and audio files. One of the neat practical conversions that will become more relevant is converting media into flash format so you can easily post stuff on the web.
Between the two of these services, they have most file formats covered. Both are ad-supported and free to use which is a good thing.
I use ZamZar and PDFOnline a ton, and so should you! Enjoy.
