Convert your blog posts with this Free online PDF converter:
As I was looking for a way to easily convert my blog posts to PDF without too much trouble, I found a very interesting tool. I was not so keen on opening all my posts one by one, copying the HTML to the word processor Open Office and clicking the PDF button.
There were also a few online PDF converter I tried that produced a nice picture of the blog post from header to footer. What I wanted is the blog post in itself and this can be done in just a few steps at PrintFriendly.com.
I am very impressed by the clean PDF file that this online Free service can produce. In fact, it is not originally an online PDF converter, but a Print Friendly converter.
Watch video to see how it works:
PrintFriendly cleans and formats web pages for perfect print experience. PrintFriendly removes Ads, Navigation and web page junk, so you save paper and ink when you print. It’s free and easy to use. Perfect to use at home, the office, or whenever you need to print a web page.
Online PDF Converter – Step by Step
For this example I chose to convert the following post on my blog: Does Safelist Marketing Work?
How to use this online PDF converter:
First, enter the URL of the webpage in the window and click the “print preview” button.
Then, a window opens with a preview of the page. You can see that the header, footer margin and all the things in the blog are cleaned leaving only the bog post.
There are always a few elements that you need to delete like the social media entries that you can see below. Hover your mouse over the section to delete and click “Click to delete”.
You can delete any paragraph or image you choose not to have in your final PDF document. Now, we have a few options in the toolbar at the top.
Print: if you just want to print.
PDF: to convert to PDF
Email: to email the page
Text Size: you may choose 100%. I personally like to have the fonts a bit bigger in the PDF file.
Remove Image: Checking the box will remove all images.
Undo: this will undo what you just did.
When the document is to your liking, it is time to click the “PDF” button.
Click the “Download Your PDF” button and this is done.
This is how the two converted PDF files show. Fantastic!
This is how they show in another PDF online converter:
That’s not bad if you want the whole original webpage to be converted in PDF, but obviously this is not the solution if you only need the main content section.
I hope this blog post about this online pdf converter will be useful to you.
