Which free PDF creator is better, CutePDF or PrimoPDF? Both offer paid premium versions (CutePDF Professional and NitroPDF Professional, respectively), but why wouldn’t anyone pay for a non-Adobe Acrobat?
1. Easy to install.
2. Gets the job done.
1. Files are huge, sometimes even 3x bigger in file size than the original.
1. Small file size.
1. The pop-up (I think to get me to go pro) comes up every time I try to print the document into a PDF. The box that indicates “Never ask again” doesn’t work.
Since my job has me uploading documents for web-based viewing, smaller file sizes are a plus for everyone involved. Even though some of the conversion results in greenscale and not greyscale look, the dramatically smaller sized PDFs of PrimoPDF works better for me.
CutePDF, although, doesn’t try to convince me to upgrade at every use, but these programs are free so I can’t complain too much.
