How to convert a pdf file to jpg
PDF files are great for preserving the integrity of a document, but they can be a bit of a trouble if you are trying to insert them into another document or presentation. PDF’s also require a separate program to open, which may be confusing for your grandparents or your kids. Converting your PDF file to the JPG image format solves these problems, allowing you to embed, edit, and share with ease.
There are some methods which are used to convert pdf files to jpg…
- Using Online Conversion
- Using Image Editing
- Using Google Drive
1. Using Online Conversion
* Find an online PDF to JPG converter.
There are several to choose from, and most are free to use. These services allow you to upload your PDF file which will be converted to JPG format. If you have multiple pages in your PDF document, each page will be converted to a separate JPG file.
* Upload your file.
Click the “Choose file” button on the online converter of your choice. Browse your computer for the PDF file that you want to upload. One of the limits to these services is that file sizes are typically limited to 25 MB per file (100 MB in Zamzar’s case and no limit on Smallpdf).
Online converters typically set their default quality at 150 DPI, which results in decent quality conversions. You can usually change this to 300 DPI, which will dramatically improve the quality but lead to a much larger file.
- Sometimes you will need to select JPG as the desired output format (others have JPG selected as standard).
* Download your converted file(s).
The time it takes for your file to be converted depends on the amount of load the conversion server is experiencing as well as the size of your file. Many services will optionally email you once the conversion process is complete, or will email you the download links for the converted file.
- If your file has multiple pages, you may be given links to download each page individually, or you can download all of the files at once in ZIP archive format.
