    Convert any file into pdf or other files by sending it to an email address

    http://lifehacker.com/353692/five-em...vert-documents

    The Digital Inspiration blog offers up five email addresses that offer free file conversion for Word docs, PDFs, and even MP3s with no fuss, no muss—just attach a file, send it, and wait for the reply with the converted file attached. For mobile device users who can't read or open certain formats or desktop users who need a little audio formatting without downloading software. The full list of addresses, after the jump.

    * iPhone@pdfonline.com—Converts any attached Microsoft Visio or Word file (including the 2007/.docx kind) to PDF files, and supports multiple file attachments. Ignore the "iphone" in the address, as it works from any device or computer, but only supports files up to 1 MB in size.
    * pdf@koolwire.com—Converts Microsoft Word, Excel or PowerPoint files to PDFs. Like the other Koolwire addresses below, it accepts files up to 10 MB in size.
    * doc@koolwire.com—Convert PDFs to Word or Rich Text Format files.
    * mp3@koolwire.com—Convert WAV files to MP3s.
    * wav@koolwire.com—Convert MP3s to WAV files.

    Of course, anyone who can get to a Gmail account has some conversion utilities built in, but for those moments when your access is limited, these email apps might be worth having in your address book. Note that the utilities don't require "Convert" in the subject line, as pictured—I just tried to avoid Thunderbird's nagging about sending no-subject email.

    I use a program called "Cutepdf" (Google to find download) that installs itself as a printer driver. You just print your document, picture, etc. and select that driver in the printer popup and it lets you save it to any folder you want as a pdf.
