Have you ever received a file or created your own file that needed to be in a different format? Whether PDF to DOC, JPG to BMP or MP3 or Youtube to WAV, documents, images, audio and video files can be converted more easily than you think.
Each of these free online services is ideal because they offer multiple types of file conversions in one place. Therefore, you don’t have to bookmark multiple sites for the most common types of conversions or the ones you need most often.
Even before trying your first file conversion on Online-Convert.com, you can quickly check the supported file types. In the small box at the top right, enter the file types to convert to and from. Press Go and see if the site supports what you need. When you’re done, you can choose between an audio, video, image, document, ebook or file converter right on the homepage.
Select your destination format from the drop-down list in the corresponding section. You will then be taken to a new page where you can search for your file, enter the URL or upload it from your cloud storage service. Click Convert File and you are done. As an added benefit, Online-Convert.com offers a hash generator on the homepage.
2. Convert files
Convert.Files is another simple option with different input and output file formats. Search for your file or enter the URL to get started. Select the formats for your document, drawing, presentation, ebook, video, image, file or audio. If you upload your file, the input method can be automatically filled in the correct format if it is easily detected.
Then you can mark the checkbox to receive a direct link by email or just hit the Convert button to take your file immediately. When the conversion is complete, click on the provided link to get your new file. And if you are looking for a specific but rare file type, you can check all supported formats.
To quickly convert files from your computer, Dropbox, Google Drive or a URL, see Convertio. Link your file and then choose your conversion type from an image, document, ebook, presentation or vector format. The great thing about Convertio is that you can convert multiple files at once by clicking the Add More Files button. And you can save your converted files to Dropbox or Google Drive if you want.
Click the Convert button when done and you can see the conversion progress along with the file size. Then press the Download button for each converted file. You can also download a ZIP file that contains all your conversions, which is another useful feature.
Zamzar supports more than 1,200 file conversion types for almost every need. You can check out popular conversion rates directly on the main page if you want to be sure before you start. Then search for your file or enter the URL and choose the output format. You can choose from Image, Document, Music, Video, EBook, Compressed or Preset Video options.
Zamzar works a little differently from other converters in that you have to enter an email address to get your new file. The site also offers an inbox to manage your files with a paid account. If you don’t mind using your email address to receive your file, or even if you prefer, take a look at Zamzar.
