Have you ever been in a situation where you’re using an office or library computer to browse the Internet, and when you try to open a PDF file it doesn’t work because you don’t have Acrobat or any other PDF reader installed?
You could install a PDF reader, but that’s not always possible or convenient.
For example, if you don’t have administrator privileges on the computer you are using, you won’t be able to install any missing tools to help you open the file. This is a very common issue on corporate machines where permissions are limited.
So, what can you do when you find yourself unable to open a PDF file?
A free online service is a great option because you can quickly upload the PDF file and convert it to another format. Converting PDF to JPG is a great idea because JPG is the most common image format and will open on most operating systems without the need to install any additional tools. Even office applications and web browsers can display JPG images so you won’t have any trouble opening and viewing the file once it has been converted.
Another advantage to converting PDF to JPG (or any other image format) is that images will have a smaller file size and load faster. This might be ideal if you are sharing the file with a large audience.
Convert-my-image.com is one of my favorite online conversion tools because it lets you easily turn any pdf to the set of images. Even better, the tool also lets you do the opposite and convert JPG images into a PDF file. This is a great feature because normally creating PDF files requires purchasing Adobe Acrobat Pro. Now you can turn images into PDF files for free in just a few seconds.
