PDFOnline converts to PDF and back

PDFOnline is a free online solution to convert documents in various formats, images, and web pages to Adobe PDF. Even better, you can also upload an existing PDF file to receive back its HTML version via E-Mail (only restriction: 2MB size limit).

The results look good, no wonder since they use the SDK by BCL Technologies which is known to deliver pretty good results.

Wow, it better do a good job... the product is $2,500! (A measly $1,000 if you just want text output.)

It's a shame there's not better choices for converting pdf/eReader/iSilo formats into html/rtf/text.

I used to have a service up for converting PDF to Plucker, but had to take it down due to some pretty ugly abuse from users in Brazil and other countries.

I found one company who created an entire service which used my free PDF to Plucker conversions for their customers... to the tune of over 700 conversions per-day, every day. They never even asked if they could use it in that capacity.

Sigh.

I may put it back up again, but I'll throttle it and add a way for users to "extend" the number of conversions per-day with donations or some other method to offset the bandwidth costs.

Hi Hacker!
How about an add-on to plucker desktop?
Would be sweet to convert pdf to plucker within the desktop.

Probably unlikely, since this is non-free and I'm sure requires Windows-specific DLLs and controls to function properly (i.e. won't work on Linux or OSX using Plucker Desktop).

But why not email the maintainer of Plucker Desktop and ask? I'm sure he'd have a better answer than I would.

Another good free source to PDF converter at http://www.freepdfconvert.com

It can also convert back PDF to DOC and also support hyperlinks.

Interesting project, but they're just using Windows' Adobe distiller components on the back-end there (and it failed on quite a few of my documents, claiming they were passworded [they were not]). A neat project, but still has a ways to go before it can be really used for production.

The 30-minute delay between conversions is a bit of a pain too.

There is a good, opensource PDF print driver available for Windows at
http://sector7g.wurzel6.de/pdfcreator/

The device that best handles PDF will be a shoe-in for best ereader I'd imagine.
