What’s so good about TinyWow?

If you use a Mac like me, splitting PDF files is a massive pain. With this tool, you can easily achieve this by just uploading the file you need to edit. Converting Videos into GIF files is also a very useful tool for sharing explainer media (such as the one I use below in the how to). The tool can actually unlock PDF files which is awesome if you ever forget your password and the meme maker is a fun addition to the toolset.

Main Features

  1. The tool is completely free to use.
  2. Files are automatically deleted after 1 hour.
  3. Video to GIF is very useful for when you want to keep web pages light.
  4. PDF Splitter, Unlocker, Protector, e-sign, merge and convert to word file.
  5. Meme maker.
  6. Convert image files to other formats.

Use Cases

I found that the video editing tools are very useful on already processed videos. For example, you could use Loom to record certain processes or actions and turn them into GIFs that loop when you want to explain a certain process.

  1. Quickly edit video files.
  2. Quickly unlock and convert PDF files.
  3. Easily create memes
  4. Convert web pages to JPEd files. Similar to screenshot guru

  4. Download the finished file.

To use TinyWow, you can upload PDF files from your computer, Dropbox, or Google drive. To save a PDF file, click on the “PDF” button at the top left corner of the page. Next, you can select the desired page and select whether you want to extract individual pages or save all pages. Once you select the page you want, you can upload an image. After this, the unprocessed files will be removed from your account in 15 minutes.

Video to GIF Example:

Considerations

  1. Files are deleted after 1 hour
  2. Ensure your FPS on video to gif conversion is no more than 15fps
  3. The PDF unlocker can be a bit glitchy.
  4. URL to JPEG works very well, possibly better than screenshot guru.
  5. Sometimes, depending on the screensize, you have to zoom out to see the whole menu.
