How to resize PDF pages or Add Page Margins

Here’s how to modify the paper size of your PDF file or add white space padding to your PDF pages using online PDF converter, DeftPDF

1. Upload Your Files

  • To upload your files from your computer, click “Upload PDF File” and select the files you want to edit or drag and drop the files to the page.
  • To upload files from Dropbox, Google Drive or from a website where your files are located, expand the “Upload PDF File” drop-down list and select your files.

2. Choose How your document will be resized

You have two options to resize – you can either change the paper size or add paddings/margins (also known as white spaces) to resize how big or small the document looks.

a. Resize PDF Pages

  • Select “Change Page Size” to change the paper size of the document. You can change it to these sizes: A0, A1, A3, A4, A5, Letter, Legal, Ledger, Tabloid or Executive.

b. Add Margins / White Spaces

  • After uploading the file, select “Add Margins and Padding.” This will enable you to add the margins and define how big it will be. You can add margins to each side of the page – Top, Bottom, Left and Right. Indicate the preferred margin size (in inches) in every side and as you do this, a preview of your margin will be shown on the pages.
  • You may also create margins for specific pages only by selecting the pages on the thumbnail preview. If you have selected a page and you would like to deselect it, simply click on its thumbnail preview again to remove the selection.
