BullZip PDF Printer installs a virtual printer, which becomes available from the Print menu command of any program that supports it. This way, you can turn any type of printable file into a PDF document. Using the program’s basic functions is as simple as sending a document to a real printer. However, there are some additional options that allow you to have more personalized results.
Most of the graphical user interface of this product consists of a series of tabs, labeled General, Dialogs, Document, Image, Watermark, Merge, Security and Actions. The first of these tabs is used to select an output format. In this respect, the program luckily supports not only exporting to PDF but also various well-known picture formats, including BMP, JPEG, PCX, BMP, and TIFF. It is great that you can append a file to an existing one.
The Document tab is intended to enter properties that identify the file. Moreover, you can set the desired quality, adjust the zoom level and choose compatibility between versions. In a similar way, you can go to the Image tab if you want to control such output parameters as resolution and orientation. The rest of the tabs allow you to watermark the document and secure the document with a password.
To summarize, Bullzip PDF Printer has the main advantage of supporting a long list of printable document formats. In addition, it can perform the conversion without affecting the original quality. What I did not like about this tool is that requires downloading third-party software in order to work properly.
The product can be used at no cost by up to 10 users without commercial purposes. Since there are many similar programs out there, you may want to take a look at a few before making up your mind. In this regard, it is my duty to say that there are various completely free products that can perform similar tasks; yet, they do not support so much customization.
- Supports multiple source formats
- Highly customizable outputs
- Secures documents
- Allows exporting not only to PDF but various picture formats as well
- Requires downloading additional software
- Limited range of editing functions
