Export PDF Document to Image

Exporting a PDF document to image allows you to save the contents of the source PDF document as a collection of image files that can be opened in third-party applications.

To export PDF to image, open the File → Export menu and select Pages to Images. The following window opens

Export PDF Document to Image in Master PDF Editor

Adjust the exporting settings and click the Export button to save PDF as images.

The following settings are available:

  • File Name – specify a file name for images, or browse for the destination image. If multipage exporting is selected (see below), an incremental suffix will be added to the specified file name upon exporting: DocumentName_1.png, DocumentName_2.png, … etc.
  • Page Range – choose what pages of the document you want to export to images.
  • Format – select the destination image format: BMP, JPEG, PNG, or TIFF.
  • JPEG Quality is only available if the JPEG format is selected. This option specifies the quality of the JPEG-compressed images. The recommended value of 80 is a good compromise between quality and size of images.
  • TIFF Compression – select the compression algorithms for TIFF images. Only available if the TIFF format is selected. You have the choice of five compression methods, each with its own advantages and drawbacks:
    • LZW – is a legacy lossless compression algorithm that works best with 8-bit sources.
    • ZIP – also delivers lossless compression, which is slightly slower and slightly better than LZW.
    • CCITT FAX 3 – is a lossless compression method for black-and-white images. It works best for texts, so if your PDF is mostly text, select this format. In the FAX 3 (or Group 3) modification, the algorithm encodes each scan line of the text independently.
    • CCITT FAX 4 – the same as above, but each scan line is encoded with reference to the previous line, yielding better compression ratios.
    • JPEG – is a lossy compression algorithm (see above).
  • Transparent – this option is only eligible if PNG is selected as the output format. The option makes the background of images transparent.
  • MultiPage – if enabled, the source PDF document is saved as one image with multiple pages inside. This is only available for TIFF.
  • Size – here you can adjust the DPI of the output image. The dimensions of the image are calculated automatically.
  • Export – choose if you want to export the document with annotations or the document only.
