@ Mark
That copies the text, but what about the rest of the book? I use a PDF to JPG converter, part of PDFZilla, for the same reason, to make portable copies of pdf files from technical books and manuals so I can view them on my PMP (originally) and my Android tablet (now). The Android tablet has several pdf readers, including Adobe's own reader, but the files load better as jpg files using the ACV comic book reading program. As jpg files, you actually can copy them onto a digital frame and use it as an ereader.

Not to mention that many DRM protected pdf files don't permit copying. But that's for another day's discussion.

"Sorry to barge into the “Explain it to Eric” saga but if your wife needs to see PDF files on a PMP that supports .txt format wouldn’t you be better off by opening (in whatever PDF reader) the .pdf document, press Ctrl+A, press Ctrl+C, open Notepad, paste all the copied text and save it in .txt format?
Mark"

I do not understand the high number of thumbs down for this program.

The program installed correctly, and worked flawlessly. What more can you ask for?

THUMBS UP.

Another use for this program is if, for some reason, you wanted to put the pages from a PDF in a digital picture frame without hassling around. Not too different from getting the pages into your phone or tablet.

In the specific case I tested this with, I converted a PDF instruction manual into JPGs to get it into my tablet - and I easily deleted all the pages in other languages. The PDF reader in my tablet is BUGGY and SLOW. Now I can take my tablet, with these new JPGs on an SD card, to the unit and study the 400 different menu options available on the unit, without having to print everything, and without worthless duplications in other languages. I will do this for several other PDF manuals and I'll put them all on one SD card just for that use. I've been thinking about this for a little while, and this is just the program I need.

Again, THUMBS UP for this program! Thanks, GOTD and PDF2JPG.

@Mark #32: Thank you.
This seems to show that the application can be used as a portable application. I have a portable folder on my PC that I use for portable apps. I moved the installed files to this folder and it is running fine. (By the way, I was prompted for the installation location during setup and was able to install to Program Files with no problem.)

As far as I can tell, installation put nothing in the registry.

I zipped the folder with the program files and emailed it to myself at work. The acid test will be when I try to use it there, as I can use ONLY portable applications there.

Work is really the only location where I need this program. In answer to all those who asked why anyone would want to do this: when you're using software that will work only with image files! I use software at work that requires input in JPG format -- PDF format won't work. Like someone else who posted here, I needed to convert a PDF file to JPG format at work just yesterday! We ended up uses Microsoft Paint to convert it, which is a pain. This is a much nicer way....

Excellent! Does exactly as advertised. Quickly turned a very detailed technical .pdf into 10 separate pictures in seconds and each was pure photographic quality. Has options to convert to .jpg, .bmp, .tif, .png or .gif.

Installation on my Windows XP-PRO SP/3 took less than a minute and registration occurred when I did my first conversion. It is then registered correctly if the next time you open the program it does not request the key.

Many thanks to Tracker and GAOTD for this awesome program!

"15. evelinelm" gave a great example for saving as a jpg file. I have Acrobat 7.0 Professional (old but still functional) and it saves in many formats (including JPEG2000, Word doc, TIFF, etc.)

Has anyone tried the free and open source openoffice.org 3.3 with the pdf extensions?

It never ceases to amaze me of all the people that complain about programs offered here daily. You aren't asked to pay or even donate for the programs, yet people constantly look for reasons to find fault with otherwise costly programs.

I don't download every program offered, but I always look and am thankful there's a website like GOTD that offers shareware for free.

Thanks, GOTD.

To all, Irfanview is one of the best and most powerful image tools I have used. It has a very small footprint and does all the conversions you need. Plus it is 100% completely free. It handles batches with breeze, easy to use interface. I have been using it for years, and with the plugin package installed, I have never had any issues. I have modified photos (simple mods, it's not photoshop), batched to PDF, batched PDF to jpg. http://www.irfanview.com/

To add to the discussion on why you would want this program, if you are in a print production environment, taking a submitted PDF file and converting parts to a graphics format with adjustable dpi output makes perfect sense. You can then insert part or all of the PDF into a page layout program and then create separations for your printshop. Also, the ability to edit an existing graphic from a PDF rather than start from scratch can be a time saver.

I imagine creating graphics files for websites would also be highly useful. So would being able to translate a PDF graphic into your favorite image editing program.

My favorite free PDF tool is Nitro PDF Reader, which can extract text or images from a PDF file. In spite of its name, it also allows you to create PDF files and edit or rearrange them, or work with form data, or add your signature to a PDF form.

Check out http://www.nitroreader.com/ for more info. It is still in beta, but I've used it for months without any problem. Nitro has a number of other useful PDF tools which you can use online or off.

Thanks to all for their useful comments.

Re: "Why would you want to convert pdf to jpg files" I will be trying this today. Over the years we have used graphics illustrators to great logo's, banners, etc for us. Many use Adobe Illustrator for that. That creates .ai files which we generally can't read. This past weekend I found out that if you change the .ai extension to .pdf, IN MOST CASES, you can then read/view it with Adobe Reader. That being said, I will be trying to view/convert the .ai to pdf to jpg file so we can use it in other graphic programs so we don't have to re-contact the graphic illustrator or buy Illustrator.

i don't know why so many thumbdown instances, however, this converter does the job well. fast, drag-n-drop, user-friendly interface, format option, DPI and page range, batch conversion...what else you are looking for a free product? but yes, $40 does not make sense.
WORD OF CAUTION: it tries to be installed in C:\ folder by default. change it to C:\Program Files (x86)\ for your convenience (win7pro64).
regn. went easy. two thumbs up.

#14: "... and others can convert PDF to JPG, but I need to know: Are they quick and easy? Really?"

It's fairly fast/easy to open the PDF & click Print...
Set up the default or an added profile in PDF Creator to the image format/settings you require, open the PDF(s) in your choice of viewers & print, or easier yet, use the context menu.

* * *

#32: "If you need “PDF To JPG” to be in C:\Program Files just follow the 4 easy steps below:..."

FWIW you need to re-register MSCOMCTL.OCX, preferably in Windows [32 bit] system folder -- installation registers "MSCOMCTL.OCX" with Windows in it's installed location. If that file's not where Windows registry thinks it is, some apps can break, including today's GOTD. In my XP Mode VM there was another copy of MSCOMCTL.OCX in Windows system folder that PDF TO JPG tried to use, but clicking the PDF TO JPG button it apparently crashed -- the app was still running but not visible... without the copy in the system folder it crashed completely. In Vista/7 mileage may vary a bit if you've got copies in the Windows\WinSxS folder, but IMHO that's a bit unpredictable. And of course that doesn't address any other installed apps that will look for MSCOMCTL.OCX in the registered location.

PDF To JPG is a small VB [Visual Basic] app that does as it says, giving you 1 image per PDF page at a resolution you set by typing in the numbers for dpi [Dot Per Inch]. It works, but IMHO the developer would be better off using Visual C [per posted test code in the csdn.net forum]. Instead the VB app takes over the very commonly used "MSCOMCTL.OCX" with a slightly older version -- PDF To JPG is hardly the 1st app to do so, & probably won't be the last, but in essence wrong is & always will be wrong... removing PDF TO JPG will break any other app that uses that file. [If you have that problem look [search] for MSCOMCTL.OCX in the Windows system folder, or download the latest version & register it there with Windows.]

Otherwise installation adds the program's folder, by default at Root [C:\PDFToJPG\], that holds 11 files taking up ~8 MB. New registry entries equal an uninstall key, though roughly 40 values were changed in a monitored XP install [changed from the previously used MSCOMCTL.OCX to the included version].

A very quick Google search didn't show a lot of freeware alternatives, though many graphics apps will open PDF files [what I've done on the few occasions I wanted an image of a PDF], screen shots work, the Adobe Reader X will take snapshots or copy pages in raster image format to the clipboard, the free PDF Creator will print to image files as easily as it creates PDFs etc...

I also can't find a good reason to convert a PDF file into JPEG format unless on rare occassions it might come of some use especially if someone wants to create a cover of his presentation.
It would have been better if you had something like PDF to JAR coverter.

@ John # 35:

Sorry to barge into the "Explain it to Eric" saga but if your wife needs to see PDF files on a PMP that supports .txt format wouldn't you be better off by opening (in whatever PDF reader) the .pdf document, press Ctrl+A, press Ctrl+C, open Notepad, paste all the copied text and save it in .txt format?

No doubt that in this way for your wife it would be a lot easier to read text on the small PMP LCD screen.

Not to mention that on PDF files larger than 500 KB you will only need 1 or 2 seconds to carry out the (above) procedure, whereas you would need much longer to convert the same amount of data if you were to use "PDF To JPG".

Not to mention that JPG files would turn out to be more than 10 times the size of .txt files... In this case I would say that "Size does matter"... Surely your wife would agree :D

I tried this on a PDF map -- a REALLY BIG map. One that is formatted to print at 44" by 36", which I think is "E Size".
I also wanted it at high resolution -- 1200dpi.
The program terminated. Apparently it cannot CONVERT mixed bitmap & vector content TO JPG, only extract existing bitmap material.

It does seem to extract .JPG files from all pages of a PDF file though, which is pretty useful.

It would be nice if the program displayed some error condition before just bombing though.

If you go to a free and legal pdf (ebooks made from old and non copyrighted books) and download it and found out that your ebook reader cannot change the size of the pdf and it is way to small to read or it does not work on the ebook reader, then this piece of software is ideal.
I was thinking about gutenberg project or even archive.org which provide legal old scanned books for free. Some of their pdf don't work on my ebook. So, if I convert the pdf to images and then I can change the format of the pictures and remake another pdf. So, it is quite useful in my case. You see, ebook readers cannot change the format of a pdf only rotate it. Thanks GAOTD and the developers for this app! Keep up the good work!

Is this progran usefull? Yes it is. At least for me.
I'm preparing for a city-trip and found several websites with city maps and maps of metro-lines. But these maps are only downloadable in PDF-format. My smartphone cannot handle PDF. With this program (on XPSP3) I converted the PDFs to jpg and copied the jpg-maps to my smartphone. Now I don't need to carry printed copies and more important I do not need expensive data-roaming.

@ Alex # 29:

If you need "PDF To JPG" to be in C:\Program Files just follow the 4 easy steps below:

1) Copy the "PDFtoJPG" folder (from wherever it was installed) and store it somewhere (local disk or external storage)

2) Uninstall PDF To JPG

3) Copy the "PDFtoJPG" folder (from wherever you stored it) and paste it in C:\Program Files

4) Create a new desktop shortcut for the .exe file... That's all.

Please note that the "PDFtoJPG" folder contains 9 files and one of these files ("sound.dll") contains the registration details, so when you will run PDF To JPG (after you have followed the above procedure) you will not need to re-register the program (by inserting the key) as you will find it to be (always) already registered.

"Well I believe that the main (and probably only) reason to convert a PDf to a Jpg is to make the file size smaller"

I'm not sure why it would be smaller....especially if it has nay text that would go from tiny data to big.

I think Kattah #26's has the reason for this - JPG is sometimes a more universally accepted file format to input into some other type of presentation or media device.

Coincidentally I was looking for a simple & free pdf to jpg converter this weekend, but had no luck finding one I liked. I was going to download this one but then saw the large negative user rating percentage (77% as of the time I type this), more than I can remember recently seeing for a GAOTD, so before I try it I was wondering if anyone could comment as to why so many folks dislike this program. Thanks.

Installed it without issues on XP SP3, it works fine, there are more options than JPG, its is fine for me. The only annoying thing is that when installing it, it didnt pointed to Program Files directory, it just put itself on the root diretory, what i consider an amateur mistake, organization is a must nowadays, moreover considering lots and lots of installed programs at ours machines. That's it.

What's the purpose? The only reason I can think of to convert a PDF to a JPG would be the case where you have a PDF that was badly scanned and needs to have the images cleaned up or brightness/contrast adjusted. Even that situation doesn't require this software. Gimp (free alternative to Photoshop) will open the PDF directly. So again, what's the purpose?

For those asking why conversion from pdf to image files, I wanted to give a reason that would be helpful. When creating a video, many video programs do not allow pdf files to be used as a slide. There have been several occasions when I wasted a lot of time converting pdf files. To me, a batch process to complete the task would have been ideal, especially a process allowing the dpi to be set, as this program allows.

Thanks GAOTD for showcasing a possible solution for importing pdfs into video editing software!

OK, Eric, here's an example for you from the real world - my friend bought a big LCD TV but there was no manual. We did our best. Then at home I Googled the TV and found a manual 16MB worth of PDF - my friend only needs a few of the illustrations to complete the hook up - this program will allow me to convert the pages and send them.True I could also use a screen capture to get the images, but at least that is one use - to extract and print out part of a PDF. Personally SNAP4 (SNAP3 was free here recently)does everything I could ever want in a capture program. Since PDF readers are free and great, like Foxit, I also wonder about the relevancy of this program, but at least I've provided one application of it. Thanks GOTD.

Eric (# 3) asked a very wise question above (reasons to convert pdf to jpg) but so far it looks like nobody has the foggiest idea on what this SW is for....is that right?? LOL!!

Well I believe that the main (and probably only) reason to convert a PDf to a Jpg is to make the file size smaller: so a program like this could be useful if you have a PDF of several MB stored in your PC or USB PEN DRIVE and want to reduce its size to free space in your HD.

Moreover PDF documents, unlike JPG files, require an external application (adobe Reader, Foxit Reader etc...) or plug-in to be read, requiring more time for loading compared to the JPG file which can be streamed in.

Finally such a conversion may be useful if the PDF contains many embedded images, because Office applications like POWERPOINT do a better job and are much faster at handling IMAGES in comparison to PDF documents.

That being said, I believe that 40 Bucks for doing just this conversion is sheer madness, taking into account that, besides FREE tools like PDF-XChange Viewer and Irfanview, people can also use FREE ONLINE FILE CONVERTER SERVICES such as ZAMZAR (http://www.zamzar.com/), that can do the same conversion as quickly and professionally as today's giveaway for FREE.

Hope this can help!!

This version comes at a reduced price from the previous version offered here last November. The software works fine. I ended up with a collection of PDF to this and this to PDF. I find it more practical and space saving to have one product if possible. The same goes for all the specialized video convertors/editors.

I don't know why they don't maintain all their PDF products under one site but I guess there's a reason. My suggestion is if you are using Vista or Windows 7 that you run the software as an Administrator to properly activate. I have run into instances where I was prompted to register each time I opened the software (or maybe it was when I tried a conversion) and that resolved the issue.

This is a great product. Installed and registered great on my W/7x64.
Thanks to Spider #2 for letting us know how to register. Just to add to that, don't create an eleborate project to begin with because before you can try it, you must register and restart the program.

To add to examples of how this is useful...(which is a common question with any PDF converter) This is a great way to grab just a pic or page or pages of a pdf magazine to put on a website or to create a smaller pdf of just an article from that magazine. Maybe you see a funny picture or add in a magazine and want or email it to a friend or put it on your site, etc.

There are pdf books in which you may just want to save a few pages of a poem or recipe. If you have a ebook of recipes but there are a couple you use a lot or want to share, this is a greta and very fast way to get just those pages. Also, you can take a pdf magazine you have purchased and exratct everything except the ads and then put it back together without the ads.

There are plenty of sites like The Gutenberg Project where you can get ebooks legally for free and sites where amature magazine publishers or professional free magazine publishers provide their magazines for free in pdf form like Issuu.

I like this program because it's fast and it lets you select specific pages to grab and lets you pick from several picture formats and the outcome is perfect, unlike if you tried taking screen-shots of pdf screens or capying and pasting text for those few pdf files that even allow that.

IMHO - the price of this Software is rather steep.. (for "one function" tool), so in normal circumstances I would probably reach for other Programs that I have, and which "do the same thing" among other Capabilities -- It would have to a brilliant tool (like Chef's knife) to keep it for that special gourmet dish.., but as life teaches us - in a draw full of knifes, each having ability to peel an apple - wouldn't you grab an actual "apple peeler" first - if it was at hand?
Such is a simple reason behind keeping one-function tools, I think. Practicality!

And this specific one, as Someone already mentioned - stops people from fiddling with your text (too bad!:) - as just one example.

Thanks GAOTD for "shipping" Software of this nature our way.

I change PDF to BMP so I can edit the graphics. I make a lot of games and papercraft. Sometimes I have to tweak the image to get what I want. I also delete the unnecessary graphics to save ink. Sometimes pages in a game manual or a public domain book will be upside down. I can fix it it and then convert the images back to PDF. Sometimes a public domain book will have boarders that need to be removed to save ink.

I'm using PDF to JPG Converter given away here from a company that appears to be called PDF to JPG Converter. Is today's giveaway better?

@3 -- I just finished a master's thesis in music composition. The finished report was required to be in PDF format, but I was also required to include scores of original compositions. My notation software saves in PDF format, but I could not have multiple files for the research committee to open. I used the FM PDF to JPG Converter Free 2.0 software from www.fm-pdf.com to convert the PDF scores to JPG, which I then inserted into my WORDdocument as pictures. The free software I use has what this giveaway has, but it is free, so I won't be changing. Thanks, anyway, GOTD.

But can the alternatives convert batches? Are the alternatives quick and easy? (I'm not asking does the computer process the conversion quickly; I'm asking about the time I must spend from start to finish.)

I used The GIMP to convert PDFs to JPGs when a friend was sending me his nicely-formatted theatre reviews for me to post on his website.

Loading The GIMP took a long time. The whole process was tedious.

Perhaps "PDF-XChange Viewer", "Irfanview with the PDF plugin" and others can convert PDF to JPG, but I need to know: Are they quick and easy? Really?

Last Wednesday Word to FlippingBook was given away here. That only works if you have MS Word installed. But under water it first makes pictures. With todays giveaway you can use last weeks giveaway to get a poor man's PDF to FlippingBook. Just replace the default pictures in your temp folder by your own pictures. No MS WOrd needed. You can use the freeware LibreOffice or OpenOffice to make a pdf from a doc-file.

You can do the same thing using Gimp, which of course is open source, stable, and completely free!

Nice little app. I could really use this to make slides that can't be ripped of for text content or by OCR... You can't cut n paste text from an image!

Only problem is I already have Adobe Acrobat which does what PDF to JPG 2 does and more. As does Ifranview, my office suite and several other I tried that were already on my system. (some are freeware)

So for $40 I would never, ever consider purchasing this. But if it was a Suite: JPG To PDF Converter, PDF to JPG 2 and PDF OCR together for $40 I'd buy it right now.

Eric (#3) The only reasons I can think of that some may want to convert PDF to JPG would be to use it on a web site or to control the output dimensions of a printed product such as a poster. How useful this single use software would be would probably be dependent upon the battery of software an individual has.

For those who said has never found something like this, please try "PDF-XChange Viewer" ( http://www.tracker-software.com/product/pdf-xchange-viewer ).
It is an PDF viewer and editor. It has lots of extra features including export the PDF to JPG / BMP / GIF ...
And the most important is that it is free, even for commercial use.
