Most PDF readers allow you to make little or no edits to your PDF documents. If you want to do this once, you’re usually dependent on (sometimes a bit shady) web services. Do you find the use of an online PDF editor OK? PicoPDF lets you edit PDFs for free.

If you want to download the free version of PicoPDF, be very careful because the link to this version is not very obvious. Also note that the free version is for non-commercial use.

The program is very simple: To edit a PDF document, simply drag it into the program window. This is even possible with multiple documents at the same time; they all end in separate tabs.


In the menu bar you will find various sections, although the logic is sometimes difficult to find. Don’t let that spoil the fun, because there are quite a few options. For starters, you can highlight any text in the color you want. You can also move predefined blocks to another location in the document with a simple drag gesture. We have experienced that it is sometimes a bit difficult to select and move text with the mouse.

It’s also okay to enter your own text or paste it from the clipboard. It’s not just like setting a different font, size, and color. You can also delete selected text. Adding images, including scaling and moving, is just as easy. However, new images will end up as a separate (top) layer above your document text. So don’t expect text wrapping or anything along these lines.

You can also put a signature anywhere on your document. You can create your signature in several ways: draw with the mouse, import a picture of it, or just type your name.

You can easily give the text a different font, color or size.


There are still some options that only work at the document level. This will let you zoom in and out, but won’t flip or rotate the document. And it probably won’t surprise you that you can print a range of pages that you can set yourself. You can also compress documents (with an adjustable compression ratio) and combine multiple PDF documents into one large document. Finally, you can extract editable text from a document via OCR, sometimes at the expense of the original layout.

Your own signature: drawn, scanned or typed.


We cannot call PicoPDF a professional PDF editor because some edits are a bit strict. But ultimately, this editor offers quite a few editing options: from highlighting, adding and moving text to adding signatures and images.
