Welcome to the PDFBlink home page!Welcome to the download page of PDFBlink - a visual comparator for PDF on MS Windows 2000/XP/Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8. It allows you to view several PDF and visualize differences. It is especially useful for version control of large PDF pages like plans or diagrams.
Even if you don't use the compare features PDFBlink is still a fast viewer for large PDF pages.
PDFBlink is a free addon to PStill. Without a valid PStill license it will still work but display some messages from time to time.
PDFBlink works by displaying several (up to 4) PDFs on top of each other and change between them in a rapid way. For the eye differences immediately shows. Its a technique normally used for comparing astronomical images to find asteroids and comets but also works great for diagrams and plans or any other pages with lots of content that make spotting differences between versions difficult.
PDFBlink has some interesting features:
- Very large pages can be loaded. PDFBlink uses an intelligent cache mechanism that allows it to handle areas much larger than the system memory based on the tested large image view implementation of Earthsight.
- Easy to use interface. Just drop a PDF onto the viewer window to have it displayed, click and drag the mouse to scroll.
- Zooming is very fast. PDFBlink uses its cache for retaining page data and does not need to render the page again for rescaling like other viewers do.
- Synchronized view. PDFBlink allows to pan the loaded pages around in a synchronized way.
- Small footprint and system requirements.
- Can read and display PDFs up to PDF v1.7.
