  • Positive impact. PDFelement is one of my principal tools for the visualization and editing of any kind of PDF documents.
  • Size optimization of documents is also a very good tool, it helps me to send presentations in an adequate size, especially for top customers.

New to PDFelement 6 Pro, glad to be learning its many features - and leaving Adobe Acrobat behind!

  • Considering the exorbitant pricing of the Adobe packages nowadays PDFelement kept me within our budget.
  • Which means I can self-publish more materials without seeking external expertise.
  • It also means I can produce classier-looking covers for books and booklets.
  • [Correction: the review form asked if I was offered any reward or recompense for writing the review, and I said "No' - but now I remember I was offered a $10 Amazon gift card by PDFelement if I did so.]

  • For me, it's been very important to me that my business as a pet sitter and dog walker not leave a negative footprint on the environment. To that end, it's been very important that i'm able to do as much paperwork as possible without using paper. PDFelement is wonderful at helping me meet those goals.

  • Saves hours of entering manual data from PDFs to an Excel Worksheet.
  • Let's me create more spreadsheets that I normally would not be inclined to attempt because of initial time consumption of entering data manually.
  • With the extra spreadsheets and workbooks created, I share these with coworkers to save time on estimating and eliminate many errors by manual calculations.
