Adobe Unveils Cloud-based PDF Creation and File Sharing Tools, CreatePDF and SendNow

Written By Sam on 7 November 2010

Adobe has unveiled two new cloud-based services, CreatePDF that helps convert and process PDFs on the Web, and Adobe SendNow that allows users to send large files. Here’s a closer look at the two services:

Adobe SendNow: Adobe describes this file-sharing service as a ‘one-stop destination for sending and receiving large files among colleagues and coworkers.’ The service allows users to send a file to one or more recipients from Adobe’s website. However, it places a default seven-day limit to the files available to download. The time can be extended, if a user wishes to. You can also subscribe to a more advanced account and get:

  • Delivery receipts
  • Friends or colleagues to sign in before accessing any sensitive document.

Adobe CreatePDF: Its name is a giveaway. This service helps users to create PDFs online and allows users to convert a range of file formats to PDF. It can also combine a mutiple files into a single PDF. That’s seems to be a handy feature, which is perhaps why it is not free. As a matter of fact, the service is free to use only five times. You may want to avail of the service to convert an ‘unlimited’ number of files to PDF or use it to perform any kind of PDF combination’s, in which case you will have to cough up $9.99 per month, or alternatively $99.99 every year.
