1. Sejda PDF Editor
Sejda PDF editor starts by standing at the top. It is basically one of those PDF editors, few in number that actually allows you to edit the text that pre-exists, without adding a watermark. Normally what happens is, that with other PDF editors, they allow you to edit only the text that you have added. But on the same hand will throw watermarks all over the place.
Another one on the list is Inkscape. Inkscape has made itself quite popular and famous amongst its users due to it being both free and an excellent viewer and editor. It also includes editing functions, which normally is provided by PDF editors in their paid versions. It is a bit advanced as compared to Adobe Photoshop etc. so if you are already not familiar with that software, this one might come with a bit of complexity to it. It is worth mentioning, that do not consider Inkscape if you only want to edit, delete text or images in PDF.
