Swift PDF - re-released as freeware


I

ihug

I've just re-released Swift PDF as freeware - no limits or ads or
spyware. It's not a printer-driver type of PDF app, but one where you
load images and click a button to create the PDF. It's pretty simple,
but does its job well.
Here are the screenshots:

And here's the official blurb:

Swift PDF is useful for taking images (from scans, photos, downloads or
any other source) and combining them into a single PDF document. Adobe
PDF (Portable Document Format) files are a universal file format that
can be viewed on multiple operating systems. Swift PDF was initially
designed for creating PDF files of scanned pages to fax, archive and e-
mail the documents instead of sending individual pages one at a time.
However, it can also be used for photographs, graphics or any other
Jpeg, Gif or Bitmap images.

You can set the page sizes to any available paper size (Letter, Legal,
A4, etc.), adjust the margins, page orientation and sizing options on
each page. There aren't many more options or features than that, but it
does its job simply and swiftly, and it's entirely free.

And it looks interesting too. However the DL page appears to be
underdeveloped as yet...

Seems only to contain a

<html><body></body></html>

and very little else. - I have been having trouble reaching certain
domains recently, so maybe someone else is having better success than me?

If you would go one level up (remove the "download.html" then the link
isn't as dead as you seem to think.

Mike: If you still have troubles getting these I can YouSendIt again (I'm
on DSL, so no problem here doing that)

Since the original link was snipped out of the thread, here is one working
for me:

Sorry, but I can't find a download link that works either. Sounds very
interesting.

Hi Jay, no I didn't have any probs getting to the home page of this
link, it's only the link from the home page to the DL page that seems
to be dead right now. My guess is the author hasn't enabled that part
of this site, just yet.

I probably just need to be a bit less impatient in this case :)

Oops... too enthusiastic when the description and screenshot pages came
up... What I understand from it (I found a page pointing to his former
$ware version, which has been "taken over" by SwiftView.) he might have run
into a trademark problem with the SwiftView people

At "derring's" someone posted a message regarding the download page problem
in his forum, which still holds a SwiftPDF section...Perhaps it helps.

Mike it isn't your browser... the page is really empty (aslthough one level
up there is plenty of HTML...

But <http://www.derring.com/swiftpdf/download.htm> is an empty page?

I tried to run this but Windows came up with the usual message saying
that there is a problem (report to Microsoft).

That's odd.. It's a simple app & there's not much to go wrong with it.
I've used it on 2K & XP myself. Anyone else have this kind of problem?

Hi Ed,

First of all: Thanks for this nice little PDF photo album creator, which
surely has some other use as well!

I'ver installed it here on W2K SP4, and there were no problems when
running the programm!
