Debenu PDF Tools Pro drops its $59 price tag, goes free for the next few days

Debenu PDF Tools Pro is a powerful set of PDF tools which can help you to merge and split PDFs, convert them to text or images, edit properties, add or remove passwords and a whole lot more.

Normally $59, the package available for free -- but Debenu says this is only for "a few more days", and the offer could expire at any time, so if you’re interested then we’d grab a copy now.

Need more information? Here’s how it works.

The program doesn’t have a central interface, instead just adding itself to your Explorer context menus. Right-click a PDF, select "Debenu PDF Tools Pro" and you’ll find a menu listing its various options.

A "Convert" menu allows you to convert PDF files to text or images. You can also select multiple images and convert them into a single, or multiple PDFs.

The "Extract" menu can extract text and images from a PDF file. You might use this to grab the embedded images within a PDF, say.

The "Security" menu allows you to add or remove a PDF "Open" password, or apply a digital signature to the file.

There’s a simple PDF viewer, a document properties tool, and an option to extract PDF form data.

And the Edit menu has so many functions that it could be an application all on its own. It can add or remove attachments; extract, remove or edit bookmarks; edit existing document properties, or add custom properties of your own; view, add or remove document JavaScripts; and insert, extract, delete, crop or rotate one or more of the document pages.

There isn’t always a lot of depth to these functions. If you’re converting a document to images, say, you don’t get to choose the image file format, the base file name, or anything else: just specify a file folder, lots of JPEGs are dumped there, and you’re left to organise them yourself.

Debenu PDF Tools Pro does still provide a great deal of power, though, while also being very well presented and generally very easy to use. And it’s certainly worth the download, so go grab a copy immediately, while the offer is still available.
