Hi Everyone, You may have noticed some information on our website and in your personal account about a new PassportPDF plan available for customers with licenses under an active maintenance plan.

Today we’re going to explain what it is all about 😊

First things first:

You’ve probably recognized the widgets from our AvePDF web app on many of our pages as they illustrate the GdPicture.NET various engines in live-action.

You can share AvePDF with your friends, clients… it’s free! You can also embed each widget on your website to help your users compress a file before sending it, for instance.

What is the PassportPDF Plan?

If you have an active subscription to an Annual Maintenance Plan, you get PassportPDF credits every month to explore and use PassportPDF services.

When you activate your PassportPDF Plan, you create a new PassportPDF account, where you can start using your credits right away with no additional cost.
The amount of credits that you receive depends on the type of GdPicture Annual Maintenance Plan you have.
When you reach the monthly cap for your credits, your PassportPDF services will stop until your next monthly credits are added unless you choose to remove the spending cap by acquiring additional credits.
