Question: I've tried Google and can not seem to find an answer. I like to save articles in PDF format for easy accessing later. I would like to edit the author/keywords in properties so that I could more easily find what I'm looking for. It seems the easiest way is Acrobat Pro, but I can not believe there isn't a freeware program that lets me edit PDF properties. Is there a solution on VeryPDF, at least a cheaper solution?
Answer: When you need to edit PDF properties like author/keywords free or in a cheaper solution, maybe you can have a free trial of VeryPDF cloud based API solution named VeryPDF PDF Metadata Manager Cloud API, by which you can insert Title, Author, Subject, Keywords, Creator, Producer, Created Date, Modified Date from/to PDF files within browser. The most important, if you have API code of VeryPDF, this software is totally free for you. If you do not have API code, this software is also free using but there will be some watermark on output. Even if you need to buy an API code, it just charges less than 20$, so I guess this solution is quite proper for you. Please check more information of this software on homepage, in the following part, I will show you how to use this software.
Open browser and input URL following examples.
- When you use VeryPDF cloud based application, you do not need to download any third party application. Simply open browser and then input URL following the below examples:
By the above URL, we can edit PDF properties like setting title, subject, author, keywords, creator, producer and others basic information. When you do the real editing, please change the online PDF URL to the real URL of the PDF you need to edit PDF properties. Please use the following parameters to add the basic information you need and connect parameters by symbol &.
-setpdftitle <string> : Set PDF title
-setpdfsubject <string> : Set PDF subject

Different with other API, VeryPDF API is cloud based, so you can run it under any computer system like Mac, Windows, Unix and others. So I feel it is the cheapest solution for editing PDF properties.
