Convert Adobe Illustrator graphics to Adobe Portable document format.

We have found 18 software records in our database eligible for .ai to .pdf file format conversion.

Various applications developed from Adobe, like Fireworks, Photoshop and of course Illustrator are able to export .ai graphics to Adobe PDF format, which is more or less ai to pdf conversion. Once saved as PDF the original graphics can only be recovered using Illustrator.

You can also find and try various 3rd party vector conversion programs like UniConvertor, but using the original program is always the best choice. On OS X, you can use the Preview graphics viewer to print your .ai graphics as .pdf files.

The tables with software actions are a good pointer for what a certain program does with various file types and often may give users a good hint how to perform certain file conversion, for example the above-mentioned ai to pdf. However, it is not perfect and sometimes can show results which are not really usable because of how certain programs work with files and the possible conversion is thus actually not possible at all.
