These days media files, documents and images etc. come up in number of file formats or extensions. Sometimes people require conversion of file format /changing file extensions. Like if you don’t have compatible software that supports specific file extension or file format, then you can open it by doing format conversion to a supported one. Like if you don’t have Adobe Acrobat reader and want to open a PDF file then you can convert it into a DOC file (Microsoft Word) and open it in MS Word.
People use different File format converter softwares in order to change file formats. A number of online websites also provide you option to convert format of any file to any other extension by uploading it to their servers. After conversion, these websites generate temporary download link for your converted file.
File format conversion by softwares and by online websites are old methods. Today, I am going to share a website with you guys that will let you convert file format of any file to any other file extension just by sending an email.
