In one of the previous posts, we talked about PostScript and how to get a PostScript file in different ways, and now we will look at the reverse operation, how to convert PostScript to PDF or another format.
There are numerous websites that will let you upload a PostScript (.ps) file and download it as a PDF, for example:
- Aspose.Page Conversion tool allows you to convert PostScript docs to PDF, DOCX, and raster images;
- Convertio PS to PDF Converter basically uses to convert from PostScript to PDF, but you can change the output file type and choose DOCX or image formats;
- Online2PDF also can convert PS to PDF, DOCX, or raster images
All these applications convert the given format with sufficient quality in one click. And it will be convenient for me if I know the exact content of my file.
In the case of PostScript, this feature does not work always, because, usually, viewers for desktop OS are rarely installed for PostScript. Assume we have PS files named Abstract-version1 and Abstract-version2, created six months ago. Hardly, without a preview, we can tell how they differ.
Obviously, in this case, the converter application with the preview feature can help.
