Have you ever wanted to convert a PDF file into Word or Excel so that you didn’t have to re-type it? Last week a friend asked me how to strip the music soundtrack off of a video. Perhaps you have a company logo that is in JPG format and you need it in PNG format for a website.

There are hundreds of similar examples where you need to convert a file or document to some other format. Until now that has been a challenging, time consuming and technical process.

There’s a wonderful website service called Zamzar that has changed all of that. It’s free, easy and you don’t even have to install any software. In fact you don’t even have to create a user account or login. Just go to the website, select the file on your computer that you want to convert, select the format you want to change it to, enter the email address where you want the converted file link to go, and then press the convert button to make it happen.

Zamzar currently supports over 1,200 different conversions, so if it’s technically possible to do a specific conversion, odds are that Zamzar can handle it. Give it a try now, so that when you need it later, you’ll know what to do.

Go to Zamzar now.
