How to Remove PDF Watermark

Method 1: Freeware – Google Docs

Most people have used Google Docs or Google Drive at some point in their day to day lives. Few people know that Google Docs can actually be used to remove PDF watermark. It is a fairly simple process.

You can convert the PDF to Microsoft Word format and then open it up in Google Docs. The watermark should then be on a separate layer from the rest of the document, and you can easily select it and delete it. Then, you change it back into a PDF.

Since Google Docs is a freeware and readily available online, this is a relatively convenient solution, though it does require a fair bit of converting.
