These online file converters are a boon for some while an unnecessary distraction to complete their work for the rest lot.

A free tool is all you need for converting your documents from word, PowerPoint, Excel or Rich text documents to PDF, JPG, PNG or TIFF file formats almost instantaneously.
Let’s walk the talk and you will see for yourselves if this is the right tool for your file conversion tasks.
What is DocuFreezer and what it does?
DocuFreezer is basically a free tool that makes the process of conversion of documents into different file formats less intriguing than it rather seems. This free tool makes the process of converting between different file formats and batch conversion of files a walk in the park. This tool is developed by fCoder Group, Inc. and has received decent positive response from many users worldwide. Within a few clicks, you can easily convert between different file formats including Word, PowerPoint, XPF, Excel and RTF to PDF, JPG, TIFF and PNG’s.
DocuFreezer makes use of an innovative new technique called ‘Freezing’ that captures the documents in entirety and the lossless file is outputted which is easily accessible and platform independent. The output quality of the file is in no way compromised and it does quite well in replicating the file in its entirety.
How to Convert PDF to JPG and other formats?
The process of file conversion using DocuFreezer is pretty straightforward and quick. It being a free tool to download for non-commercial purposes, you can head straight over to their official website and download the 30MB tool. Once the downloading and installing part is done, you can launch the tool and you would be presented with the above screen with the option for adding files and selecting a destination folder and the destination format.
Here, files could be added in three ways – By clicking on ‘Add new files’ and selecting individual files of your choice, selecting ‘Add folders’ and selecting the entire folder containing all the files for batch conversion or by dragging and dropping the files straight on to the main window. The file formats supported for uploading files could be seen in the above screenshot and they typically include Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, XPS, PDF and RTF files.
The output file format could be selected from the bottom left hand corner of the window. The four options that it offers for output files are PNG, JPG, TIFF and PDF. Select any one of your desired choice for the final file and choose a destination for the same. The conversion process is seen above and from what I notice, hundreds of files with hundreds of pages individually take considerably small amount of time for conversion and the process almost happens instantaneously.
Once the conversion process is done you would be notified of the same and you could head over to the destination folder for accessing the final version of the converted files.
Conclusion – What makes it a great replacement for online converters?
DocuFreezer is a great offline tool for file conversions and doesn’t require any internet connection once installed. Other major drawback of most of the websites providing online free file conversions is their obtrusive advertisements that somehow manage to annoy users to no extent and their lack of options for batch conversion of files. With that being said, DocuFreezer turns the table on this regards with its free to download and ad-free tool that accomplishes the same task quickly and better.
Although this tool might not be the right fit for converting a small number of files and the online route being a better one in that case, this tool is a must have for people who have to convert files on a daily basis and in larger numbers. This is a free tool for non-commercial purposes and a $19 premium purchase for business uses and it perfectly justifies its price tag with what it has to offers.
