The file formats we support are:

  • MS Word doc and docx
  • PDF files
  • Rich text format
  • Open doc format
  • Txt files

Embed images

Selecting the embed images option converts your images to code. This means you do not need to have separate¬†image files, everything is in the one document. This option is useful for small images like graphics but if you have a lot of images in the file it may increase the size and complexity of the code. Be aware when you embed images the code can look strange, you will see lots of random looking code as shown in the screenshot below. But don’t worry when you put the HTML live the images will show ok.

Full page mode

Creating standalone HTML files? No problem, this option adds the <head> and <body> to HTML, you need this so the page displays correctly. If you are pasting into a web-based system like WordPress, Amazon, eBay etc. you will not need this option.

Fixed HTML

If you need your HTML to look exactly like your input document then tick this fixed HTML option, but please be aware that fixed layout may not look great on mobile devices. It’s useful when used as standalone HTML page or when shown in an <iframe>. This option enables Full page mode option which is required to correctly display fixed HTML page.

Converting images to text with OCR

If your PDF file has text content in an image format we will attempt to OCR it and convert it to text.
