Free html to PDF/tiff converter by API

Question:I would like to convert a web page to PDF, preferably TIFF, in a .NET web application. Is there an API or library out there I could use for free? Is there such application on VeryPDF website?

Answer: For converting HTML to PDF better, now let us check some information. HTML documents have numerous tags. To convert from HTML to PDF, I think the application should have the ability to convert handle those tags for making readable. And we need to understand what PDF and TIFF files are. PDF is for Portable Document Format. TIFF is Tagged Image File Format. They are not the same, they are not opened by the same program. Based on those requirement and knowledge, VeryPDF strongly recommend free API named Web Page to PDF Converter Cloud API, by which we can convert web pages to PDF files. Fully supports HTML and CSS tags, including page breaks, JavaScript and other html elements. For converting HTML to tiff free, please use API named Web Page to Image Converter Cloud API. Please check more information of those two API on their homepage, in the following part, I will show you how to use those two API.
