What is DjVu? - A defintion.
If you have ever been wondering what a DjVu file is you just arrived at the right place: The short answer is that it is portable file format like Adobe PDF which is mainly used for eBooks and scanned documents. The DjVu file format is using the extensions .djvu and .djv and was developed at AT&T research labs nearly 20 years ago. It uses arithmetic encoding and lossy compression algorithms in order to achieve small and fast loading files. If you just want to open a DjVu the quickest solution is to convert it directly to PDF using our online converter.
Are there good reasons for converting DjVu to PDF?
The answer to this question completely depends on what you are planning to do with your DjVu file. In general DjVus behave quite nice when installing the right readers to open them. However, when you are using a mobile device with Android or Mac OS it might be a good idea to convert your DjVu to PDF. Like that you can use the PDF viewer which is natively provided by your device. There are only view programs which support opening DjVus on smart phones (see our list of DjVu Readers).

Is it a good idea to use PDF printers to convert DjVus?
Although this solution is recommended in many internet forums, using simple PDF printing tools like PDF printer for a conversion of DjVus is not at all a good idea since these programs usually do not pre-process or analyze the input files. Therefore, you will end up with extremely large PDFs which also cannot be searched. We strongly recommend to use a specialized converter like this one to obtain an ideal result.

Dear developper, just to let you know that I tried to convert a searchable djvu document (1Mb) to pdf but the site didn't allow me (as it does all the time...) to use OCR to get a searchable pdf... The produced pdf is not searchable. Any hint why it doesn't allow me to use OCR content ? All the best and thank's for your work!! Daniel.
This works better than a paid conversion option I have been using, thank you so much for developing this!
