Zamzar is a handy web application that allows you to convert a file from one format to another … online and for free.
You’ve been there when it comes to file conversion tangles:
This nifty bit of software lets you load files in document, image, video, e-book, compressed, and even CAD formats – whether from your computer or a URL.
Then you choose the format you want the file converted to. (At last count, the software supports more than 1,000 conversion types so you have plenty of options.)
You pop in your email address, agree to the company’s terms, and click “Convert.”
In a few minutes (or more, depending upon how busy things are in File Conversion Land), you’ll get an email containing a link. Go to the link and download your converted file. Save it or use it as you wish.
It seems almost too easy. But it’s not. I’ve been using the software for several years. I’ve converted hundreds of files never paid a dime for one of them.
You can also check out additional cool features offered on the site like email conversions (converting files directly from your email account) and a Zamzar browser button to add to your toolbar.
The site is user-friendly. And it saves you the hassle of downloading or (horrors!) buying conversion software.
Learn more at the Zamzar website. Happy file-making!
