PDF files can be created by scanning a document into your computer. If you don't own a scanner, however, you can still convert files into PDF files by downloading and using PDF Creator. PDF Creator is a software program that will allow you to turn files such as word processing documents into PDF files. Best of all, PDF Creator is free to use, regardless of how many PDFs you wish to create.
