Isn’t that title kind of hard to believe? Well, when I tell you that merging several pdf files into one is pretty simple and can be done for free within four steps! If we’re technically speaking, it’s really only three steps. With this, gone are the days of having to stress over your file merging issues, and you’re blessed with more time on your hands for other activities.
Merging pdf files is exactly how it sounds, you are combining several different pdf files into one. This usually takes less memory space than compiling two different documents because pdf files themselves are lighter when it comes to the data they carry. The acronym “pdf” actually stands for portable document format.
Expanding a little on that, having a portable document format allows the file to become universal, meaning you can open the file on any device. It will look the same throughout all of them. With the pdf files taking up less space, it makes them friendlier for phones and tablets with limited memory and friendlier for your computer’s overall performance.
Before You Consider Merging Your PDF Files
You are probably already hooked onto the idea of saving memory space for your phone and computer that you forgot to even consider what to merge. We know that you have the files that you want to merge, but you can’t do it just yet because you need to turn your files into the portable document format first, you can do so on the pdfbear.com website!
It’s a straightforward conversion process, so you don’t have to stress over anything, just going to pdfbear.com already shows you the different file conversions you can do – which is pretty much all of them. Once you’ve converted your documents, you can start to merge PDF files to save and open up more space for other stuff you need and want to download!
Where You’ll Need To Go
The folks over at pdfbear.com have minimized and simplified all of the steps that you need to take to merge all of your pdf files into a singular unit. They have their own web page dedicated to merging your pdf files, just add “/merge-pdf” after the original URL. I did say earlier that there were technically only three steps, so that makes it way easier!
Simple 4-Step Process
For the first step, you have two options for choosing the pdf files that you want to be merged. You have the first option of selecting the files by clicking on the big blue bar at the center of the page and manually selecting each pdf file. You could choose the other option of just dragging all of the files from your desktop’s file explorer and dropping them in the blue area.
The second step, which is done by the website, is where the combining and merging will happen – this is the step that I don’t really count for the whole process because everything is done for you. Isn’t that quite the life-hack?
The third step is where you’ll need to edit and customize any of the elements that were combined from your several pdf files. It’s nothing too tricky, so you’ll breeze by this. Once you’re done, you just need to click on Merge pdf. The last step is the most important, just download your finished output so you can send it through emails or upload it to a cloud drive.
