While this method is simple, you can only do it while working online and in a web browser on a desktop. This method is too difficult with a mobile device, or without a wifi connection. SmallPDF's converter tool also has really limited tools for editing and annotating, so you will need another tool if you want to perform OCR or edit your file.
