Conversion of ai files to pdf file format

Various applications developed from Adobe, like Photoshop and of course Illustrator are able to export Adobe Illustrator .ai graphics file to Adobe PDF format, which is more or less ai to pdf conversion. Once saved as PDF the original graphics can only be recovered using Illustrator.

You can also find and try various 3rd party vector conversion programs like UniConvertor, but using the original program is always the best choice. On OS X, you can use the Preview graphics viewer to print your .ai graphics as .pdf files.
