While most modern computers and mobile devices have no issues opening PDF files, there might come a time when converting a PDF to a JPG file will make it easier for viewing, especially if you are worried about compatibility issues between PDF viewing applications.

Thankfully, converting a PDF to a JPG is not a particularly difficult task and can be accomplished on your desktop or mobile device. Here’s how.

How To Convert PDF To JPG Using An Online Service

There are several online tools and services that you can choose from and for the most part, they are free to use. We will be using PDF2JPG.net as an example in this guide.

  1. Go to PDF2JPG.net’s website
  2. Click Choose a PDF file
  3. Upload the PDF that you want to convert
  4. Select the quality of the conversion
  5. Click the Convert PDF to JPG button
  6. Wait for the conversion to be completed
  7. Click the link to download your converted PDF document as a ZIP file

Note that each page of the PDF file you uploaded will be converted to a single JPG image, meaning that the more pages you have, the more images you will have.

This might be useful if you’re trying to single out a particular page (or pages) and don’t want to have to send the entire PDF. Also, selecting high-quality JPG files means a larger download, so that should be taken into consideration if you are converting a PDF document with many pages.

Depending on the online service you choose to use, some also allow you to convert PDF documents to other file formats. This includes other image formats besides the JPG format, and also Word documents, just to name a few.
