Tip of the Day : Unlocking PDF Files

Permalink: http://paul.us2uk.eu/?x=entry:entry130501-154903

Occasionally you may find yourself in a situation where you have a huge PDF file which you want to split up into smaller chunks. While this is easy enough to accomplish using a variety of free software (or you can use the full version of Adobe Acrobat) you may find that the file has been secured with a password.

There are a number of programs which will unlock these files for you but, in most cases, you’ll need to pay for them. There are some free online services for relatively small files but here’s one which will certainly unlock files which are up to 10mb in size - maybe more. Just choose a file to upload from your computer and click the unlock button then wait for the link to appear, to download your unlocked version of the file.

Ching! Ching!

If you found anything on this site of use, interesting, or even mildly amusing please consider tipping a few pennies in the jar to help look after our son, Georgi, to whom this blog is shamelessly dedicated.

Georgi contracted encephalitis and fell into a coma in the summer of 2007. He’s a strong boy and survived, but he suffered brain damage and still can’t walk or talk (well, not very well - but he does try). He’s growing all the time and every penny we collect goes towards his upkeep, and towards his future care requirements.

Thank you.
