  • Import one or more pages from another PDF without importing the entire file.
  • Supports all QuickTime formats (PDF, JPEG, TIFF, PNG, PSD, PostScript, GIF and more).
  • File list supports Drag & Drop, reordering, sorting and more.
  • Select individual or multiple pages from PDF and TIFF files.
  • Preview window shows page contents for easy selection.
  • Support for PDF bleed and trim boxes.

Simple Mode

In simple mode you can easely combine your pdf document and manage them within a powerful dran\'n drop interface.

PDF Preview

In both simple and advanced mode you can have a real time pdf preview of each document or page.

Advance Mode

In advanced mode each pdf document is managed as a set of individual pages so you have greater flexibility and control about what to produce as a final document. You can delete individial pages, combine them, reorder them and much more.

I wonder if the developer created this entry, or if MacUpdate staff did. It clearly is listed as $19 on the developer's website, not $5. It also is never described on the developer's website as being "free." It is, at best, a demo. As far as the software itself, I must admit I'm puzzled. Most of the combination-type features in this can be done using the Mac OS X (free and built-in) Preview (dragging pages within one or more PDFs in the window's side drawer). Perhaps PDFGarden is targeted towards those not yet running Snow Leopard? Also, the interface is confusing. If you select many pages in the advanced view, then click "Preview," it previews only one page. The preview window shows normal window-controls (red, yellow, green buttons), but when you use the keyboard combo command-W, it attempts to close the window for the "workflow." Also, the window it describes as a "workflow" defaults to being named "PDGarden," not "workflow." Once you have the Preview window open, double-clicking any page does nothing. It doesn't change the contents of the existing Preview window. It doesn't open a new one. Strange. It has two "Help" menus, one with the standard search box, one without. It has a "Preferences" menu item that does absolutely nothing. If it has no prefs, the developer should remove that from the menu. It has a menu item for "Provide PDFGarden Feedback" that takes you to a "404 Not Found" web page. There's more that is strange or broken. Not the kind of quality you'd expect from an app you have to pay for.

Hey you could drag the PDF pages into the side bar. And then select all of the pages in the side bar, and then go to File > Print Selected Page > Save as PDF There :) But remember to "Print Selected Page" and not just Print!

According to MacUpdate, the price is $5. In the developer's website, it is mentioned as $19 - a slight discrepancy that ought to be fixed... I have never used PDF Garden, but I have used its "ancestor", PDF Merge X, quite a few times, and still have it on my desktop. I own PDFpenPro. I am wondering if I should buy PDF Garden too, or if PDFpenPro can anyway do everything Pdf Garden does?

nice app, but like MJPFILM said, drag & drop is a must have for this app. And, maybe change the term to select files :-D http://img413.imageshack.us/img413/6268/bild1ln5.png

Great app, only thing missing is the ability to drag/drop files into it AND drag/drop files to reorder in the app itself. Still, stable and does what it says.

Just what I needed to complete my two separate pdfs. First time I've had the need but as usual, someone made an application for my need.

Works well. It would be nice if you could drag-n-drop from the Finder, but that's about all that's needed.
