Benefits and use cases for converting a PDF to a photo.

As a photographer or a graphic designer, you might sometimes wish the PDF file you’re working with was a photo. Maybe you received a picture file as a PDF or you need to separate an illustration from a PDF document. Converting a PDF to a photo can make the file size smaller and easier to share or incorporate into another project, such as a presentation. You can choose your photo format based on what you’re using it for, but JPEG is the most common.

In any case, it’s easy to convert your PDF to a photo file with an online tool.
