I tried it and immediately fell in love! It was so easy to use! After a couple conversions I bought the guys a cup of coffee. A couple more and decided this was too good to abuse! I joined! My life is so much easier!


I had a huge, problematic file to convert that couldn't go through the usual automated conversion process. The Zamzar team responded quickly to my request for help, and they took the extra steps needed to do it manually.

I've used this product for years. And customer service is excellent. Just had an issue where I was charged and I didn't agree with the charge and they took care of it, even though they didn't have to.


I have been so thankful for Zamzar’s support from the beginning of the Pandemic to the present day. Their service is first rate & their helpfulness is always the best it could be.

Great thanks to you all for helping me to get the OLD files converted correctly. 20 years, quite a long time, reviewing the files brings much memory to me. That's the best gift I received last year. Thank you all again.

Fantastic service! My mom's computer died and she has 1000+ Word Perfect files she wants to keep for some reason. Since Word Perfect is basically dead, I decided to convert all her files. Zamzar's converter was perfect.

CDR Image Format CDR Converter

A CDR file is more commonly known as a CorelDRAW image file. Developed by the software maker Corel, the format is a vector image, usually created using the CorelDRAW program. CorelDRAW is a vector graphics editor and allows users to create text, shapes, general images and apply various effects. CDR files can be difficult to open if you do not have the CorelDRAW application installed on your computer. If you need to view them in a pinch you can convert to a more widely supported format such as PNG or GIF. CDR files are normally not as large as a BMP file, but don't use the same level of compression as a JPG so can be printed or digitally displayed.

The PDF format, or Portable Document Format file, was developed by Adobe Systems. PDF files are popular because they can be easily viewed and edited in a variety of computing platforms. Word documents can easily be exported or converted to PDF, and both presentations and images are also often saved out as a PDF file. Typically, PDF files are not created from scratch, but rather existing file types are converted into PDF format to allow the file to be easily shared and accessed.

PDF files normally look exactly like the original file, with fonts, colours and images all preserved. They can also be annotated and can be opened by almost any device and by any modern web browser. PDF files can be edited using Adobe Acrobat PDF software, which was developed almost 30 years ago and is available on Windows and MacOS.
