Free or cheap PDF page editor

I need to find an app that I can modify the PDF pages.  I can buy adobe, but it's expensive.  Does anyone know of a free or at least a more inexpensive app?  I don't need all the stuff.  I just need to be able to pull pages out and put pages in.  All in PDF.  Windows OS.  Thanks

I'm a big fan of the (free!) PDF Toolkit (PDFtk) from PDF Labs. PDFtk comes in both command line and GUI versions. The command line version is called PDFtk Server and may be downloaded here:

Don't be misled by "Server" in the name. I don't know why they called it that, but it's just an executable (pdftk.exe, with a supporting DLL, libiconv2.dll) that runs on "standard" Windows — it does not have to run on a "server" Windows.

PDFtk Server can merge/collate/combine pages of PDF docs, split out PDF pages, and burst a PDF into single pages, among many other features.

The full syntax for the PDFtk Server command line and some usage examples are here:

For the usage you asked about, take particular note of the burst, cat (which is short for "catenate"), and shuffle operations.

If you prefer a GUI (graphical) version of PDFtk "to pull pages out and put pages in", it is called PDFtk Free (another bad name, imo, since PDFtk Server is also free):

Here's what its opening screen looks like:

PDFtk Free
As you can see, there are several other features in the PDFtk Pro version for the extremely inexpensive price of $3.99:

This is one of those questions that asks for suggestions of a product to perform a specific function. As such, there are no right or wrong answers, as long as the recommended product performs the desired function. In this case, all of the posts are fine. There is no "Best" answer, so I selected the first post as the Accepted Solution and the others as Assisted Solutions, but I split the points evenly among the participating experts. Regards, Joe
