More PDF editing with the Online-Convert.com API!

We have already explored the topic of PDF editing with our API when we showed you how to split & merge PDF documents. In this article, we will have a look at how to protect your PDF files from copying, editing and being printed and distributed. How? By adding password protection to your PDF.

 

How To Use Our API To Edit PDFs

Before we dive into the process of adding password protection to a PDF, you’ll need to learn the basics of using the Online-Convert.com with the help of an API execution app. This API tutorial contains a basic introduction to postman and a link to the necessary collection file.

Of course you can also check out our video tutorial on how to use the online-convert.com API.

 

Now that we have covered the basics, lets have a look at how to protect your PDF to prevent people from viewing it without the password. You can furthermore specify what “users” of the PDF will be allowed to do once they entered the password.

The following command will be the basic command we’ll use.

{
    "input": [{
         "type": "remote",
         "source": "http://cdn.online-convert.com/example-file/document/pdf/example.pdf"
     }],
     "conversion": [{
     "target": "pdf",
     "category": "document"
     }]
 }

This POST command will convert an example PDF into another PDF file. The following command will be added to enable the usage of different options, in our case the PDF protection:

"options": {
}

 

Add Password Protection To A PDF

In order to add password protection to a PDF file, you have to add the following options to your POST command:

"new_owner_password": {
    "type": "string",
    "pattern": "^[\\w\\W]{0,64}$",
    "description": "Adds or change the owner's password (up to 64 characters)"
},
"new_user_password": {
    "type": "string",
    "pattern": "^[\\w\\W]{0,64}$",
    "description": "Adds or change the user's password (up to 64 characters)"
},
"allow_printing": {
    "type": "boolean",
    "description": "Allows the printing of the document"
},
"allow_copying": {
    "type": "boolean",
    "description": "Allows the copying of the document"
},
"allow_modification": {
    "type": "boolean",
    "description": "Allows the modification of the document"
}

The new owner and user passwords can contain strings of characters made up from letters, numbers and special characters. The individual strings can be up to 64 characters long.

The permissions include permission to print, copy or modify the resulting PDF document. The value for these settings can either be true or false.

 

Following this scheme, a full POST command to add password protection to your PDF should look like this:

{
    "input": [{
        "type": "remote",
        "source": "http://cdn.online-convert.com/example-file/document/pdf/example.pdf"
    }],
    "conversion": [{
    "target": "pdf",
    "category": "document",
    "options": {
        "new_owner_password": "owner",
        "new_user_password": "user",
        "allow_printing": false,
        "allow_copying": false,
        "allow_modification": false
    }
    }]
}

With this call, you are disabling a user of your PDF from printing, copying and modifying. The password for this user is user. When you enter the owner password owner, however, you can do everything you did not allow for a user.

Got any questions?

8 Things You Should Do Before Selling Your Phone

8 Things You Should Do Before Selling Your Phone
Image Credit by = http://bit.ly/1NFjW0J

With so many new phones being sold on the market, chances are that you will want to purchase a new one and replace it. Or it could be that you may want to upgrade based on a deal offered by a carrier. Other people at times just choose to donate their old phones. No matter what the reason may be, there are some very important factors to consider.

Below are 8 things you should do before selling or donating your phone. While some of these steps may vary depending on whether or not you have an Android or iPhone, the end results are the same. Keep in mind that you can and should use these same tips if you have a tablet you may be thinking of selling or giving away to someone. 
 
 
 
 

Remove Your Wireless Carrier Account

The first thing you should make sure that you do before you go and sell or donate your mobile phone to someone is to remove your old wireless carrier account. It is imperative that you deactivate your device from the wireless carrier list you been using. If you don’t, then the person you sell the device to can easily use the info to make calls or charge data. On the other hand, depending on the carrier, the new owner may not be able to activate it either. Lastly, you may end up having to pay extra cash  later on for this line not being deactivated.

Backup Your Data

One of the great things about the Android OS and iPhone apps is the ability to back your old data to your new phone easily. Not too long ago, most of us had to do this back-up manually which took a long time. Now, you can simply sync your contacts and other info quickly. If you have an Android account, then you can save all of your info with your Google account. For those that want to do a more complete back-up, then there are apps or software that help you do even more. iOS users can easily back up their apps and data using their iPhone’s iTunes software.

 

Take Your Sim With You

A lot of people who sell or donate their phones often forget to remove their sim cards. Your sim cards store a lot of information on them including your contacts. Some sim cards even store sms and text messages on them. Be sure to take your sim card out before handing the phone over to someone else. You don’t want your personal contacts or other info on the hands of someone else.

 

Remove Your MicroSD Cards

For those that have Android phones, they will most likely have micro SD cards on them. Be sure to remove it and take it out of your phone. Especially if you have videos, photos and personal data on it. Too many people forget to take them out since they are hidden. If you don’t need the micro SD card or want to sell the phone with it, then make sure to format it before doing so.

 

Backup Your Videos And Photos

Unlike Google accounts such as calendar, contacts and email, your photos and videos may need to be backed up differently. You can choose to use a Cloud account or do so manually to your computer or laptop. For the cloud option, you can use programs such as Flickr, Dropbox, Google Photo or Microsoft OneDrive. You can use Wi-Fi to back up all of your photos and videos on your old phone. Once they are there, you can connect and add them to your new phone later.

 

Back Up Call And Text Logs

There are some people who have thousands of text messages or calls on their old phones they may not want to part with. In the event that you don’t want to give these up, you can back them up. There are apps to help you backup your SMS messages. For call logs, you can do the same depending on your carrier since some like AT&T and Verizon offer them.

 

Disable Security Locks & Passwords

Most of us have security patterns or passwords on our mobile phones to help us protect them. These security measures help to keep prying eyes away from our personal information. However, if you do have any of these patterns or security codes on them, others won’t be able to access the phone without them. Make sure you disable all security locks patterns and passwords on your old phone to allow the next owner to set their own.

 

Wipe Your Data

After you have already backed up all of your data, photos, videos and text logs, your next and final step is to wipe it away. All phones, whether they are Android or iPhone, let you perform a factory reset. Apart from removing all of your apps, it also allows you to remove all of your private and personal information from the phone. Things such as email accounts, personal credit cards or banking info and everything else, will be wiped and erased.

 

Here are 11 Tips To Extend Your Cell Phone’s Battery Life

 

Keep in mind, that some instances of data remaining on phones even after factory reset has been done, has been reported. While it is very rare, it can still happen. After you have done the factory reset, be sure to check your phone thoroughly. Make sure that email accounts, passwords, photos and videos are completely gone. After you have checked and made certain the phone is completely cleaned, the only thing left is to say goodbye to it

Split & Merge PDF – How To Edit PDF Files Via API

API
Image by http://bit.ly/2ejxaXS

Converting from and to PDF is nice, but you want more?

With the API of Online-Convert.com you can now edit PDF documents! Using Postman and our API you can now merge or split PDF files. You don’t have to be a developer for this either. Check out our tutorial on how to use Postman to test our API and start editing!

In this blog article, we will show you how to perform these three easy operations on a PDF document:

  • Merge two or more PDFs into one
  • Split a PDF to create several PDFs

 

How To Edit PDFs Via API

In order to perform these editing functions, you should be familiar with postman and have access to the Online-Convert.com API. This article will show you how to do this, including a link to the necessary collection file.

Of course you can also check out our video tutorial on how to use the Online-Convert.com API.

 

Once you got the basics down, we can have a look at how to edit PDFs using the API. Following, we will talk about both functions mentioned above in detail.

In order to do so, we always need a “default” command we will send to the API:

{
    "input": [{
         "type": "remote",
         "source": "http://cdn.online-convert.com/example-file/document/pdf/example.pdf"
     }],
     "conversion": [{
     "target": "pdf",
     "category": "document"
     }]
 }

This simple POST command will convert our example PDF file into another PDF. Now we can add options using the following command:

"options": {
}

 

Merge PDF Files

In order to merge PDF files you, obviously, need several files as input. In order to do so, you need a POST command like the following:

{
    "input": [{
        "type": "remote",
        "source": "http://cdn.online-convert.com/example-file/document/pdf/example.pdf"
    },
    {
        "type": "remote",
        "source": "http://cdn.online-convert.com/example-file/document/pdf/example_multipage.pdf"
    }],
    "conversion": [{
        "target": "pdf"
        "category": "document"
    }]
}

In this example, we try to merge two PDF files. Of course you can specify more than two files in your call.

 

The general command for merging files is:

"merge": {
    "type": "boolean",
    "description": "Merges the input files in one output file using the order as they appears in the input section of the message."
}

The value that can be added here is, once more, true or false. Furthermore, please note that the files will be merged in the order specified in the input.

 

This is a full POST command that would merge our two PDF files:

{
    "input": [{
        "type": "remote",
        "source": "http://cdn.online-convert.com/example-file/document/pdf/example.pdf"
    },
    {
        "type": "remote",
        "source": "http://cdn.online-convert.com/example-file/document/pdf/example_multipage.pdf"
    }],
    "conversion": [{
        "target": "pdf",
        "category": "document",
        "options": {
            "merge": true
        }
    }]
}

The output of this conversion after your GET is a single PDF file that contains both files you have merged.

 

Split PDF Files

If you want to split a PDF into several output files, your file has to contain more than one page of content. If this is the case, you can use the following command to split this file into several PDFs:

"split": {
    "type": "string",
    "pattern": "^(\\d+-?\\d*)(, ?(\\d+-?\\d*))*$",
    "description": "The pages where to split the original file. E.g. in a 30 pages document, an entry of 10,20 will results in three output files with pages 1-10, 11-20, 21-30"
}

The string to enter for the split function should contain the numbers of the pages after which you would like to split the document.

E.g. specifying 5 would result into a cut after page no 3 of your document. The resulting PDFs will contain pages 1 to 3 (output no 1) and 4 to end (output no 2).

 

The following command is what your complete POST to split a PDF should look like:

{
    "input": [{
        "type": "remote",
        "source": "http://cdn.online-convert.com/example-file/document/pdf/example_multipage.pdf"
    }],
    "conversion": [{
        "target": "pdf",
        "category": "document",
        "options": {
            "split": "3"
        }
    }]
}

With this command, we successfully split our 7-pages document after the third page, resulting in two PDFs (one containing page 1 to 3 and the other containing page 4 to 7). Both PDFs will be packed into a ZIP archive for your convenience.

If you want to split your document into more than two output files, simply add all the pages you want the cut to appear after divided by a comma:

[...]
"options": {
            "split": "3,5"
        }
[...]

This command fill split your PDF after pages 3 and 5, resulting in the following output:

  • PDF 1: pages 1 to 3
  • PDF 2: pages 4 to 5
  • PDF 3: 5 to 7

Top Audio Formats And Which One To Use

Top Audio Formats And Which One To Use
Image Credit by = http://bit.ly/2eRAXvH

When people wonder about audio formats, the majority of them think of MP3. However, there are many other types of audio formats out there, not just MP3. Audio file formats such as FLAC, WMA, AAC, OGG, OPUS and WMA are just some of the many others available. Still, with such a long list, which one is right for you? Which one should you choose or ignore altogether? This article goes over the top audio formats and which one may be your best choice.

Before you decide or start to consider an audio format file, the following needs to be taken into consideration. For one, audio formats are separated by 3 major categories. Understanding which category is best for you, will make it a lot easier to pick one. Narrowing down a particular category of audio formats, can also point you in which one is better suited for your particular needs.

 

The Lossless Audio Formats

 

In audio files, there are two types of audio qualities to remember. One is lossless and the other one is lossy. Lossy music files are compressed in order to save space. However, they tend to have a slightly less quality variation than others. Lossless on the other hand, will keep all of the music audio quality intact coming from the original source such as CD’s. The list of lossless audio file formats include FLAC, ALAC, WAV and AIFF.

One of the drawbacks from choosing lossless over lossy is size. In most cases, lossless files can be about 2 times to almost 5 times bigger than lossy. For people who have thousands of audio files and limited space, that can make a difference in the long run.

Uncompressed Audio File Formats

 

The uncompressed audio file formats are able to capture and convert real sound waves to digital format. There is no other processing action needed. The end result of using this format is that they offer the most precise and dead-on renditions. However, they do end up taking a bigger amount of space when compared to other formats. They range in about 34 MB per minute for a simple 24-bit 96 KHZ stereo audio file.

In this category of audio file formats, there is PCM, WAV and AIFF. The first, PCM, is considered to be the most common in audio formats used as it pertains to DVD’s and CD’s. WAV formats were developed by Microsoft and are a Windows container for audio formats. Still, Mac systems can still open WAV files without any problems as well. AIFF was developed by Apple for its Mac systems around 1988. Just like WAV files, AIFF can also be opened by Windows systems without any issues too.

 

The Lossy Compressed Audio Formats

 

If there was ever an audio file format which changed the way music is shared all over the world, it is the lossy compressed audio formats. Users will sacrifice a bit of audio quality when choosing these types of formats though. However, the truth is that in most cases, the differences are often not even discernible or that noticeable. The list of lossy audio file formats include the widely used MP3, MP4, AAC, OGG and WMA.

Before the lossy formats came along, users had a real hard time saving and sharing audio files. The size of a song taken from a CD, used to be too large to be able to uploaded, sent and shared on the web. Luckily, file compression allowed for audio files to be saved and shared more easily, smaller and faster. There are some drawbacks which can result from compressing a file too many times though. This includes hearing artifacts in the background as well as other discrepancies becoming more noticeable. Nonetheless, that only happens when the same file continues to be compressed over and over again.

 

Which Audio Format Is For You?

 

Now that you know all about the most common audio file formats, the only question is which one is right for you. Deciding which format you should use can depend on what it is you want to do with the files. It also depends on what you are planning to use the files for and how much space you have available.

For those looking to save space, then the lossy formats are a great choice. The people who fall in this category are those who don’t mind music quality as much. If you are okay with less than perfect, then lossy can work for you. The reality is that most people are not really able to tell the difference between lossless and lossy compressed files in most cases. This is also a great choice for those looking to send and share files with others easier and quicker.

 

Don’t miss reading Popular Lossy Format Options For Audio Files

 

People who want to capture and edit audio in raw form, using an uncompressed format is the best choice for them. This form of audio format allows them to work with the purest audio quality available. Once they are finished, they can then export their files to a compressed format.

If you want a choice between the two latter mentioned above, then you can go with FLAC audio formats. These tend to offer a better alternative than MP3 files. While it is still a lossless audio compression, the sound quality can be much better. You should keep in mind that these audio formats do require more storage space though.

No matter which format you end up choosing, keep in mind that you can convert any of them at Online Convert for free. For those that have a certain kind of audio file and want to change it to another format, then use our free conversion tool. It is simple to use, fast and free.

One Day In A Virtual World

HTC Vive

Over the past years, the sector of “virtual reality” has been growing tremendously. A growing number of companies is devoting themselves to the development of software and hardware for “virtual reality” devices.

In the following blog article, we’ll introduce you to the HTC Vive in particular, but also some alternative VR devices.

General Information About The HTC Vive

The HTC Vive was developed in cooperation between HTC and Valve with the goal of developing a set of VR glasses for entertainment. They have a resolution of 2160 x 1200 pixels and an update rate of 90Hz.

A front camera integrated in the device enables the insertion of physical objects into the virtual world. Furthermore, the Vive has several, integrated sensors as well as two base stations that enable 360° motion tracking. This is possible thanks to the “Lighthouse” technology developed by Valve. In order to interact with the objects in the virtual world, the HTC Vive comes with two hand-held controllers that are equipped with sensors for motion tracking as well.

For maximal comfort, the Vive has adjustable straps for the head as well as replaceable foam material padding. It is said to be convenient for most wearer of glasses.

Testing The HTC Vive

We tested the VR glasses with a game called “The Lab” that has been developed for virtual reality. Donning the Vive, you step into another world. The controllers function as your virtual hands an operated, at least during our test, flawlessly. When looking around, nothing is juddering and you can move freely in your virtual “cage”. The 360Q view is working perfectly as well.

Before being able to use the Vive, the system with both base sensors has to be installed in the room. The space for it shouldn’t be bigger than 5 x 5 meters or 197 x 197 inches. Once this hurdle is taken, one has to put up with the cables of the VR glasses that oftentimes get in the way and thus slightly diminish the gaming experience. The weight of the glasses can become a bit annoying as well. Thanks to the foam material it doesn’t pinch, however you can still feel the weight.

Alternatives To The HTC Vive

The HTC Vive is, by far, not the only virtual reality device on the market. It’s biggest rival would be the Oculus Rift. Contrary to the Vive, however, the Oculus Rift was thought to be used while sitting or standing. It is not able to track motion in a larger space like the Vive does.

The same can be said about other VR glasses like the Playstation VR. One advantage of the Playstation VR, however, is its price. While you have to pay $ 600 for the Oculus rift and about $ 800 for the HTC Vive, the Playstation VR comes at a price of “just” $400. One has to take into account that the usage of a Playstation VR also requires a Playstation and controllers.

The Oculus Rift as well as the HTC Vive require a PC that can fulfill the high system requirements of the VR devices. Before getting such high priced VR glasses, it is thus advised to check if your PC or console is able to meet the technological requirements of a virtual reality device.

8 Ways To Use The Internet Like Hackers Do

8 Ways To Use The Internet Like Hackers Do
Image Credit by = http://abr.ai/2erDf7e

If there’s one thing hackers know how to do well – aside from hacking of course – is surfing the web. Their main focus is leaving behind as little trace of their browsing tracks as possible. In addition, they also know how to do everything to protect themselves and their devices, from other hackers or malware. Unfortunately, most of us don’t know how to surf that way. That’s why these tips showing 8 ways to use the internet like hackers do is so useful. Too many of people use the internet and leave themselves wide open to hackers, virus and malware. Plus, there are numerous sites which collect user data and personal info. Luckily, these tips will help you not only browse the internet as safe as possible, but also assist you in protecting your privacy as well.

 

  1. Use Multiple Accounts –

 

When it came to having an email address, most people only had one or two, at best. However, as email increased in popularity and usage, more and more individuals began to add extra email accounts. Statistics from Microsoft in 2011 showed that average users in the United States each had at least 3 email accounts. It is safe to say that those numbers have gone up quite significantly now. Having multiple email accounts is not a bad idea for various reasons. For one, it lets you separate your personal from the business or professional life. Secondly, it allows you to have one account where you can use for regular surfing. Take Google accounts such as YouTube, Gmail, Hangouts and Google Drive. All of these require that you log in to be able to use them. By having separate accounts you can use each one accordingly. See tip 2 for more.

  1. Surf Using Incognito Mode –

 

One of the best tools browsers have is the incognito mode. This mode allows users to surf anonymously without being tracked or monitored. Most website automatically store your data and account information without you even knowing it or giving them permission. While some do ask, most do not. Using incognito mode will also work great with step 1. Using it, you can log in using multiple accounts. On a regular browsing mode, you can use one account for Google, Facebook or any platform. But if you open an another incognito window, you can use a totally different account. It’s like having 2 devices available at the same time. A useful shortcut is pressing CTRL+Shift+N at the same time in either Safari, Firefox or Chrome. Doing so will open up a private window for you to use.

 

  1. Reopen Last Used Tab –

  

A great trick to know when surfing the web is reopening the last tab you closed. It could have been by mistake or something else. No matter what, if you press “Ctrl+Shift+T” simultaneously, you will automatically open your last closed tab. That command works for Windows. For Mac OS, press “Command+Shift+T”. This tip is very useful if you want to compare websites or products on pages.

 

  1. Hover Over Links –

 

One of the biggest tricks hackers use to fool people into visiting harmful sites is phishing. This is sending a link to a site such as a bank, credit card company or other legitimate site. However, the real destination of the site is quite differently from the name on it. If you receive a suspicious email or link to a site, simply hover over the link. Next, you look at the bottom left corner on your device. It is there that you will see the real and actual website you are being sent to. If it does not match the actual name, avoid it altogether.

 

  1. Use Password Managers –

 

One of the most frustrating things is having to constantly input your username and password every time you log in to a site. Apart from that, it can also be dangerous since it leaves you open to hacks. Using a password manager such as LogMeOnce, Dashlane and LastPass are great options. They also work very well with both Firefox and Chrome. Another useful thing about them is that they can also work across different computers. That means you can use them while at work and at home. Apart from time, they will also help keep you secure since you can create even more difficult passwords.

 

  1. Search Using Highlight –

 

A very useful tool users can take advantage of is searching while highlighting a phrase or a term on an article. After highlighting any term, word or phrase, all you have to do is right click on it and then select which search engine to use. Most people have Google on it, other browsers have Google, plus other search engines. Once you do so, a new tab will open up and you save a lot of time having to do manual search.

 

  1. Use Adblock –

 

The vast majority of websites have popups and annoying advertising when you visit them. Some sites seem to be entirely more ads than anything else. Using an add-on such as Adblock, will allow you to make your browsing experience much better. Keep in mind that certain sites will not let you browse their content if you have Adblock software activated. You can either use an incognito page or turn it off for that particular site until you are done.

  1. Use The Site: Function –
