From Image to Words in One (Easy) Step

Maybe I should just direct all the Studio readers over to Lifehacker today for the goods. Kevin Purdy reports on Nitro’s PDF-to-Word, a converter that allows you to upload a PDF, select format (Word or RTF) and supply your email address. Purdy states that the Word conversion is “impressively faithful to your PDF originals, with lines, graphics, boxes, and other elements retained and arranged in fluid layouts.”

Hit the jump for samples of an IRS form and more graphics-heavy docs. They are quite impressive.

I cannot count the times I have sworn at my computer while I resurrected the ungodly mess of an insurance policy I copied from PDF and pasted into Word. Needless to say, I am pretty excited about this app.

Unfortunately, the app is currently in closed-Beta, but the Lifehacker article offers a password available to the first 2,000 Lifehacker readers that sign up. I already have my request in!
