Trekker - A freeware pdf viewer, splitter and joiner
Trekker is a freeware software application that lets you view and manipulate pdf files via a file explorer like side panel. Trekker is designed to be light on system resources and should work on most computers that use Windows from XP or above. This makes PDF Trekker handy for use as a PDF viewer and arranger for older computers, as well as for new ones. Hopefully most of what Trekker does is easy to understand, however it comes with a built in help file that will continue to be updated based on user feedback.
From Trekker version 1.2 you can now use Trekker to view and print a range of image files, as well as to convert image files to PDF. Image file support includes bmp, png, jpg, gif, wmf, tif, emf, and tga. Support also includes multi-image files for gif image files and most tiff image files (please note: some proprietory tiff compression types are not supported).

Many new features are expected to be added to Trekker as development continues. Please view the forum to see what is planned or to ask for additional features. Trekker requirements are a Windows computer using XP or above. It has currently been tested on Windows XP, Windows 7 and Windows 8. Trekker can be downloaded from the GratSoft,com download page.
From version 1.2 Trekker is also available in a portable version for download. Trekker is essentially already portable, however the portable version does not use a windows registered uninstall application and does not create a windows start folder (It does create an desktop icon that you can use to start Trekker from initially).
