How to save PDF as a PNG

Saving a single PDF page as PNG

The steps above will result in each page of your PDF document being saved as PNG images. However, if you only want to save a single page as PNG, PDF Converter can also help you with this.

To do this, we'll firstly need to extract your desired page if it is part of a multi-page PDF file. Open your PDF file and scroll down so that the page that you want to save as PNG is in view. Now hit "Save Page (PDF)" from the Pages tab in the PDF Converter toolbar.

Once you've saved this page as a separate PDF, open it up in PDF Converter (File > Open). Then hit "To PNG" from the Convert tab in the PDF Converter toolbar to turn your PDF page into PNG!

After clicking either function, you'll get the choice to save the images as either PNG or JPG in the "Save as Type" dropdown selector.
