How to convert PDF to JPG on macOS

With Preview on macOS, you don’t need to download another app to convert PDFs to JPGs. With Preview, you can convert files into several different formats, including PNG, TIFF and, of course, JPG.

If Preview seems too good for you, you can use Adobe’s Acrobat DC program, which lets you convert PDFs to almost any format.

Step 3: A dialog box appears. In the Format section, select JPEG. Set the Quality and Resolution.

You can also select the folder in which you want to save the file, and set the file name.

Step 4: Click the Save button.

Method 2: Using Acrobat DC

Step 1: Open the PDF file in Acrobat DC. On the right side is the toolbar, select Export PDF.

The Export PDF window will open.

Step 2: Select Image > JPEG.

If necessary, click the “Settings” icon next to JPEG to change the file, color and conversion settings, then click OK.
