Converting PDF to JPG

In the majority of cases, the PDF format is well suited for the storage and exchange of electronic documents. However, there are certain tasks where PDF is either poorly suitable or not suitable at all.

For example, you may have to convert documents from PDF to JPG in order to insert them into a PowerPoint presentation or Microsoft Word document. The publication of documents on a site in the JPG format protects them from being altered due to the lack of fonts on the user's computer. The ease of work with a corporate archive increases if the list of links given by the search engine contains thumbnails of the first pages of found documents.

Universal Document Converter is the most complete solution for the conversion of documents into JPG, TIFF or other graphical files. The underlying basis of Universal Document Converter is the technology of virtual printing. As a result, converting documents from PDF to JPG format is not any more complicated than printing on a desktop printer.
