Converting Large PDF files to Images with Movavi PDF Editor

Movavi PDF Editor is one of the most effective instruments for converting a large PDF file to a set of optimized JPG images. Before converting to the JPEG format, you can easily edit the existing document, for instance, to add, rotate, reorder, or remove individual pages. To turn PDF into JPG, follow the steps below.

Step 1.

Download and run the PDF Editor executable on your PC or Mac and follow the on-screen instructions.

Step 2.

Launch the program, click Open File at the top of the program window, and select the PDF file you want to convert.

Step 3.

Select the range of pages you want to export. If you need to export only one page, double-click on the target page with the left mouse button. If you need to process a whole file, hold down the Shift key (the Cmd key for Mac) while clicking on the first and last pages.

Step 4.

Сlick on the selected pages with the right mouse button and click Convert to JPG, PNG, BMP in the context menu. In the dialog box, set the file type as JPG.

Converting PDF to JPG for Free with PDFMate

An alternative tool for converting PDF files to images is PDFMate. There is a slight possibility of quality degradation in the exported file, but it handles PDF to JPG conversion quickly and efficiently. If you use the trial version, the popup nag screen may get a little irritating.

To convert a PDF to a photo or other image with PDFMate, download and install the software on your computer. Click the Add PDF button in the upper right corner of the window. When the Open dialog box opens, select the PDF file for conversion. Then, just hit the Image button and click Create to complete the process of conversion.

Converting Images Online with Zamzar – a PDF to JPG Online Converter

For those who want to convert PDF files directly in their browser, we suggest Zamzar. This online PDF converter also supports a PDF to JPG conversion. However, the size of files you can upload is limited, and there’s no guarantee your data will be kept secure and confidential.

To save PDF as JPG online, go to the official Zamzar website. Click the Choose Files button on the left and select a file to process. Specify the output format using the Convert files selector. Finally, enter your email address in the Email field and press the Convert button. The converter will automatically generate a JPG version of the uploaded file and email it to you.
