PDF to JPG is a small tool designed to extract images from PDF files. This application is very easy to use. As it supports batch processing, you can create a list by simply dragging the source files onto the interface or adding them manually. Another way to use the application, although certainly more complicated, is by entering instructions directly from the command line. In case you do not need to convert the entire document, you can easily specify a page range.
It is a good thing that all the output settings are available from the main window. Moreover, you do not always need to configure the output because the default values will probably be adequate in most cases. Nevertheless, it is good to know what other options are available. In this respect, the application supports most popular picture formats, such as JPG, PNG, GIF, BMP, TIF, PCX and TGA. You can also set the expected output resolution. Moreover, you may have your images rotated to a given angle, in case the original orientation in the PDF does not satisfy your needs. You can also set the output palette to true colors or black and white. Finally, you may select an output format. When I tested the application, it worked as it was expected and even supported converting password-protected documents.
All in all, PDF to JPG can be very helpful when you need to extract images from PDF files. Although it is true that it is not as sophisticated as Adobe Acrobat (which, by the way, can do all that and much more), it is certainly much cheaper.
