Tech Tip Thursday December 15, 2016

Have you ever had a PDF that you desperately wanted to convert to a Word document? Or maybe you have a PDF and you would like to convert it to an image file so that you can post it on social media?

Try out the FREE Chrome app Cloud Convert! Their slogan is "Convert Anything to Anything!" There are over 200 options for converting files! Just to name a few, I have used the app to convert:

  • PDF to Word
  • Image to a PDF
  • Video file to a sound file (mp4 to mp3)
  • JPEG to a PNG

Here's how to do it:

Download the app in the Chrome Webstore.

Open the Chrome browser and click the Apps button in the far left hand side of your bookmark bar.

Click the Chrome Web Store icon.

Search for Cloud Convert.

Click Add to Chrome.

A pop-up window will appear. Click Add app. The app will automatically be added to your list of apps in Chrome.

Open the app.

To access any apps that you have downloaded in Chrome, click on the Apps button on your bookmark bar.

Select Cloud Convert.

Select the file that you would like to convert.

You can select files from your device or from another source such as Google Drive, OneDrive, Dropbox, etc.

Select the format for the conversion.

Select which format you would like to convert your document to.

Then, select Start Conversion at the bottom of the screen.

Once the conversion is complete, click Download to save the new file to your device - and you're DONE!
