How to convert files for free? Word to pdf, excel to jpg, and more – a New York Computer Help tip

It’s not easy keeping up with which software can convert what file to another.  Whether you need to convert word or exel or pdfs, or excel or pdfs to pictures, there are a slew of programs that can convert these files for you.  It is a little difficult to keep up with all of the thousands of applications that do this.

Now, there is one program, Zamzar, albeit a wacky name, that is a powerful converter that can change just about any format you are looking for.  It works with images, documents, music, video, and lot of other formats.  You can use it for free if you want to convert one file at a time.  All you need to do is browse to your original file and then specify what file you’d like to convert it to.  Then, your newly converted file will be e-mailed to you.

Here’s the skinny.  Yes, Zamzar quickly converts files for you.  But, pictures come out a little fuzzy.  Hey, what can you expect for free?!  But, you can subscribe to the service for bulk file conversions and online storage space.  And hopefully the quality of images are better when you pay.  This is definitely a good website to keep in your tech support toolchest.
