Cool Way to experience different tools

I've subscribed to RSS feed for the
Giveaway of the Day site and while it doesn't happen every day, I am finding some great tools that I can use right away.

Today was one of those days. I don't have the full version of Adobe Acrobat on my systems but every now and then I want to create a PDF version of a TIF or JPG document so I can ensure people can view it. Today's giveaway was a tool called Total Image Converter. It attaches itself to the right-click menu in Windows and wow! convert any graphical image to just about any other format instantly.

Giveaway is an interesting site - every day, there's a new tool. After the 24 hours has passed, it's gone. They mention it but you can't download it again. If you download it during the 24 hours and install it, you can activate it and now you have a full functioning version of the software.

If you don't, you'll still get the unregistered version (and will then have to pay to get it upgraded) - but it's a great way to try out the full software.

Regarding the image conversion, if you have SnagIt, you can do the image to PDF conversion as well.
