How to edit a PDF for free using Desygner’s PDF Editor
The PDF format is defined by its ability to make your document consistent for reading or printing, regardless of the platform where it’s downloaded from.
This format isn’t designed to be edited, but rather to maintain consistency. Because of this great feature, it’s very challenging to edit the content of a PDF for free.
But, can it be done? With Desygner’s PDF Editor, it’s a piece of cake!
Before getting started: Can you convert an image into a PDF?
This is one of the most frequently asked questions floating around online. The answer is no: you can’t convert an image into an editable PDF. So, editing a scanned image isn’t possible.
