How to convert PDF to ZIP?
Portable Document Format (PDF) is a type of document created by Adobe back in 1990s. The purpose of this file format was to introduce a standard for representation of documents and other reference material in a format that is independent of application software, hardware as well as Operating System. PDF files can be opened in Adobe Acrobat Reader/Writer as well in most modern browsers like Chrome, Safari, Firefox via extensions/plug-ins.
Files with the .ZIP extension contain an archive of compressed data, namely one or multiple files or catalogs, including their file structures, that have been compressed. If there are multiple files, they are compressed separately, which enables them to be subjected to different compression methods and unpacked independently from one another. The ZIP format is supported by most file compression and decompression software, as well as natively in the Windows and Mac OS X operating systems. Both systems allow for compression and decompression in the context menu. By default, a new archive in Windows is called Folder.Zip. The format was devised in 1989 by Phil Katz, but was initially only used in the PKZIP software created by PKWARE, Inc.
