Users regularly turn PDF into JPG so they can be edited in a native application like Photoshop or any other image editor. Since these tools don't always have PDF to JPG conversion as a function, the only way is to first turn the PDF into the JPG format so it can be opened in the image editor. If you're wondering how to turn a PDF into a jpeg file, look no further. This article shows you three different ways to turn a PDF into JPG using PDFelement, one of the world's fastest-growing PDF editors in terms of numbers of users. This is an ideal tool whether you're a professional running your own show or part of a large organization with locations all over the world. With that, let's answer the question: how do you turn a PDF into a JPEG file?

Method 1: How to Turn a PDF into JPG

The first method involves turning single PDF files into JPG image files. This is just one of the ways to turn PDF into JPG in PDFelement. The conversion happens in a very short amount of time, so even large high-resolution images are converted in just a few seconds. During that time, the entire PDF file will be converted into JPG. If you only want the image, make sure that you optimize the page size so the picture covers the entire page. Here are detailed steps:

Step 1. Open PDF

The first step is to open the PDF file in the application. You can do this by clicking the "Open File" option in the home page and navigating to the file in Explorer and click "Open", or just drag it from there and drop it into the software interface.
