PDF to Image

PDF is a very common format and has many benefits, including being cross-platform and searchable. For many simple use cases, however, it is preferable to convert the pages into plain image files.

The Online PDF to Image converter provides a free online service to convert single PDF files into Image formats. It uses JPedal, a commercial server software product from IDRsolutions, to carry out the actual PDF conversion.

When converting PDF files into png, jpeg or other image formats, consideration should be given to the type of image chosen for output. If the images are to be used for display in web pages, JPEG or PNG should be used as all browsers support these formats. HEIF offers smaller files and is being heavily promoted by Apple.

JPedal is designed for customers who want to convert many PDF files into images automatically as part of their workflow. Converting PDF files into images is the most popular problem JPedal is used to solve.

JPedal is written in Java and runs on any desktop or server. It is used by many customers worldwide and is even used by Adobe themselves to provide PDF to image conversion in their ColdFusion product.

JPedal includes a large number of optimisations not in the free online converter, including the ability to scale the page up to the internal embedded images found in the PDF and to choose different page sizes and scalings.
