Comments on Softdiv PDF to Image Converter

Thank you for voting!
Please add a comment explaining the reason behind your vote.

To #35 (GDrive): I think I got PDFZilla as a GOTD. Didn't add extra files or seem too invasive. Does what it says & nothing more. Wondershare's software seems to work well but has annoying ads for their other programs showing in their GUI. But, both work well & are worth installing if U can get them free here.

Hi, Let's not forget this is a free Gift:).. It might not be sophisticated and clever, but it's a small enough Tool to keep for fast, uncomplicated conversions? Together with useful links of Givanni's and other Guys (Big TY as always!), and guide to "best" pdf Converters (ever, free-ever a.s.o) - you'll get yourself a decent Collection of pdf Tools, and what's more - all in neat sizes). IMHO:)

Thanks GAOTD and Softdiv Software Sdn Bhd for this opportunity.

Peter Pan (8) and Free Program Lover (28): Looking at the featured software titles, isn't today's offer a "relative" of PDFZilla, which works well but is rather invasive?

It is useful to convert a PDF to images when the PDF pages are skewed, warped, or have 2-book-pages per PDF page. Once in image format, you can then use Scan Tailor (free) which will be a big help to clean up the images. Then you can convert the cleaned images back to PDF if you like.

OK, I'm mildly impressed. The software does what it claims, and does it well, and quickly. 51 page PDF converted to JPEG in about 3-4 minutes on a computer that is not exactly a speed demon is fairly impressive. I find the price to be a bit high considering what is available for free (thanks Giovanni and the others), but I still have to give it a thumbs up. As for why I find it useful, I am a teacher and quite often I want a quick way to convert to images so I can pick and choose for a PowerPoint.

I just use Corel Capture (or other screen grab application) to make a screen grab of an open PDF (or section of) and past it as new picture in PhotoPaint (or other photo editing program). Not sure why I would need this.

Sorry to post again, but just trying to help people out.

The best PDF reader I've used is "Sumatra". Every person who's computer I've fixed, I've installed it & they become much happier.

It loads super fast, is a few MBs to install & download, & reads PDF, MOBI, CHM, XPS, DjVu, and CBZ/CBR (Comics reader). It's actually worth sending the developer a few dollars as it's worth buying. It doesn't install tons of crap nor try to take over your computer like the annoying Adobe Reader.

BTW, Advanced PDF Utilities Free = PDFcore.com. U really have to pay attention during install. It caught me the 1st time.

This giveaway is ok, nothing special, sad to say. It does 1 thing ok, but "PDFZilla" & "Wondershare PDF Converter Pro" (past GOTD) are the best converting PDF to whatever, "i2pdf" (image to PDF, free) is easily the best converting image to PDF (smaller size than others, usually half the size).

I have to say I agree with Giovanni's comment #7. Advanced PDF Utilities Free are the best PDF suite I've used.

1 thing, be careful when installing them. When U get to the add-ons/toolbars part of the install, untick the add-ons then click decline, then next to continue with installation. They try to trick U into installing some crappy toolbar. Why the suite is free is beyond me too as they are EXCELLENT programs!

Thanx a million Giovanni, "King Of Freebies". U've saved me and many others a ton of time & time is money. If ever in Italy, I owe U a round of beers.

The obvious question "why would you want to convert a PDF document to an image?"

Suggested (lousy) answers:
PDF needs application like Adobe Acrobat Reader (or other free reader) while JPG does not.
Browsers have the built-in capability to display images.
An application means load time. If insert in Powerpoint, then image loads faster than PDF.

All of which are not important since:
There are many free PDF readers.
With modern PC hardware, load time of PDF reader application is not an issue (and then only once per PC session - load time does not apply for reading all subsequent PDF documents after the reader is opened).
We rarely need to insert PDF content into Powerpoint.

So for the general masses, this type of software is a solution looking for a problem, which is nearly non-existent.

Only very few PC users really need to buy such software.

Notice I mentioned PC users. Because Mac users have this capability natively without any need for extra software.

To Jim (#3) and all others that question the need for this type of application.

Let say, for example, that you have a web site that offers mystery books written by you for sale. Let's also assume that you market your products by sending emails to individuals that have opted in to receive a SAMPLE book in exchange for their emaill address. How do you get them to give you their email address and permission to send them titles and descriptions of the plots of other books you have for sale? Let's also assume that the books are only downloadable in PDF format.

The best way to market these books is to offer a FREE BOOK. All they have to do is click on the picture of the book cover to see the offer (no one reads long emails). Studies have proven that it is easier to get people to click on a photograph (a picture of the cover of the book) than it is to get them to click on a plane-ole-ordinary link. They click on the photograph of the book that is included in your email and it directs them to your funnel page where you request their email address in exchange for a free book.

This application helps you convert a copy of the PDF book cover to a photo that you can include in your email. There are 1,000's of other uses if you'll only put on your thinking cap.

Happy marketing.

PDF-XChange Viewer has an "Export to image" function that works very well. It's free and portable too.

Note that the official page just says "export pdf to image", but the function is very powerful. In fact, the options window is very similar to the printing dialog: you can zoom in or out, export more than one page at a time, and the list of supported formats includes lossy and lossless file types.

I have no relationship with Tracker Software, believe me, this is actually the best pdf viewer I ever used.

Just an observer today, so not installing. I thought I would comment on today's low rating.

However, I agree with #3, Jim -- To Software Title Publishers/Developers (in general): what would be some compelling reasons for wanting to do the primary function of your kind of application, regardless of whose software title is used? Perhaps some illustrative scenarios to give the less-imaginative among us some ideas for how indispensable doing this function would be?

THEN describe how YOUR particular product and its features are somehow better, easier, unique, quicker, can make me more productive (can you prove it with case studies?), etc., than other titles -- often free -- competing to do the same thing.

GOTD (and/or perhaps moderators, like BuBBy?): do you encourage the publishers of your upcoming titles to review the pages of user comments from similar past offerings? Surely it is not too hard to categorize most of the kinds of software offered here in the past -- audio converters, audio processors, audio editors (and similarly with video converters/processors/editors), screensavers, drawing titles (raster, vector), PDF converters, ToDo/task/calender listers, network listeners, and so on.

If it were easier for upcoming title publishers to review visitor comments left on those competing-title pages here on GOTD, and then improve their descriptions or tweak their software to differentiate it from prior titles, I believe it would make for better initial impressions when those early thumbs-up/down votes start rolling in and make for better discussion comments.

That, in turn, should make for more satisfied developers at the end of the day which should help encourage yet more developers to participate resulting (hopefully) in a wider variety of titles for us users. And THAT improvement should grow your daily audience.

I don't know... perhaps spoon-feeding advice to your software publishers works to your (GOTD) disadvantage if it served to discourage potential publishers from participating when they saw how fruitless their efforts were going to be when up against prior titles or the daily listings of "better" freebies...

Perhaps I'm hoping for too much in wishing for a GOTD utopia?

this software is very good. it is useful for a specific type of user.
if you want to use screenshot, then its up to you. we use this type of software to maximize our efficiency and save time. do you still want to take screenshot if the pdf pages is up to 200 pages? i guess not. i do hope this software publisher increase their effort to make this software better.

Thank you!!! I don't like Irfanview, so this is great! There are times when I needed to just have a little out of a pdf. I really like to have "pages" sometimes to look at. I tried this and it worked just like I needed it to!!! This was very simple to use. I am not sure why it had so many thumbs down, as I would not say that to be the case!!!!
Thanks again!

PDF-XChange Viewer Web Site will not only export to a large number of image formats, but will also allow a considerable amount of editing to be done to the pdf file, such as cutting and pasting, adding formatted text, adding images, adding balloons, creating hyperlinks and much more, all for free.

@ Peter Pan, post #8: Absurd of you to question the "integrity" of a long-established Malaysian software publisher just because it decides what it will charge for its own products. Nobody has made you buy anything before and nobody is making you buy anything now.

As to Softdiv PDF to Image Converter, I do have to echo a couple of earlier posters asking. . . why? It's not a pdf manager like these well-known freeware offerings:



nor a pdf reader like Foxit (not actually a favourite of mine, but anyway) or these freeware offerings:



and neither is it a PDF converter into text-editable RTF or Word like Nitro's free online converter or SomePDF's desktop apps:



As for converting an entire pdf file into an image, I'm a bit lost here: why would you want to do this when you can either use any free screen shot software to capture a relevant section or simply ask your intended recipient to download and use any of the free PDF readers already out there?

It's almost as if today's developer has worked up a fine piece of software that works incredibly well with CRT monitors: a Nice Idea way back when, but as nobody, anywhere, needs to use Acrobat Reader nowadays (and for their own safety's sake, shouldn't do so anyway: it's amongst the world's most targeted by malware) then the either / or scenario posed by the developer seems a bit, well, daft.

Thanks GAOTD and SoftDiv, but no thanks: this really does seem to be software that's out of time.

A word of caution regarding the PDF core link in posting #7. Web of Trust (WOT) comes up a flaming red if you click on this. Based on Posting #11 comments it would be a good idea to avoid this one altogether!

to #4.
I know the case of strong need to convert PDF to image.
If you make PPT presentation and try to directly import PDF you face ugly result.
For that case the converter is currently the only solution.
If it is business presentation you may not use any freeware, only commercial. Here is the niche for todays GAOTD.

@Giovanni - Did you actually install and test pdfcore? It wants to install browser toolbars, but unlike other software, when you say "no" it installs them anyway. Next you have to abort the installation of what you did not want to install anyway. Next, in my case An Vir comes up and says that two new start items want to be installed. So by now, my question becomes "which part of 'no' did you not understand?" No means no, you know? It is hard to get excited about a software that wastes so much of my time doing things I told it not to do.

I am not sure about the integrity of this software vendor. In the website they list Photopus Pro for $39.95 but I happen to have downloaded Photopus Pro from it's publisher as a freeware about a year ago. It used to be a software that was for sale for quite sometime but later on the publisher decided to offer it for free.

And now this PDF to Image Converter software which they list for sale at $29.95. Is this another freeware that they are trying to charge people for about $30?

The capability of this software is rather limited when compared to Adobe Acrobat or even Nitro Professional, which can do everything that this software can do and much, much more. Thank you GAOTD and this software's vendor but I shall take a pass today.

30$ for doing just one thing? Come on...

There are pretty good FREEWARE ALTERNATIVES out there which do the same things for FREE:

http://www.debenu.com/products/desktop/debenu-pdf-tools (==> PRO version FREE just this week...so don't miss it out, dudes!!)

That being said, if you are looking for a great FREE tool capable of doing pretty much ANYTHING you like on a PDF file (even OCR to extract text from images), then look no further and grab this superb FREE SOFTWARE ki$$ing your wallet goodbye for good:


Why this magic tool is FREE is something going far beyond my understanding (am I stupid?? Who knows...LOL!!).

My 2 cents for today's giveaway...

I am sorry but I cannot resist to ask - What's the point to not have the Adobe reader installed (as they advertize this converter) ???

If you read pdfs (who doesn't ?) you either have the Adobe reader or some other reader already installed. If you have it - you can save any page as image and you don't need a converter like this (another one trick pony)

Thanks for GOTD and developer's sharing!

Good app, provide many output image formats, it would be better if this program supports to convert pdf files to other file formats like office word, ppt and excel, etc.
And at this point, simpo pdf converter provide more choices. But it only allows importing pdf to jpeg, png, tiff, bmp, gif, which are the most used five image formats.
Anyway, this app will be a good complement with that one :)

Thanks again
