To use it, first you need to download, unzip and install the software on your machine. If you are using Linux Mint (with Ubuntu or Debian) or Ubuntu with KBE and LibreOffice installed, you should find the latest release here. If you have an earlier version available, the latest binary release is available here. Alternatively, see the Download link for the latest version. This software includes a PDF to JPG converter which allows you to convert your PDF files to a PDF, JPEG, PNG or TIFF image file at full or reduced resolution. The PDF file is used to feed the JPEG, PNG or TIFF file (which are then used to create a JPEG file) to the image processing applications. The image file is created in your computer's raw file format (i.e. without the conversion) and it is saved to a folder in your computer. Then you can use the image in any of your image editing applications of your choice. Please note that the user interface is very simple to use and will not be suitable for those wishing to process a lot of document files at one sitting, but if you are looking for a straightforward PDF to BMP converter with a Windows interface, then look no further. Patron's PDF2Image is a Windows and macOS compatible application. Download here (free trial) or visit their website to download the free demo and see how it works. You will need an operating system that supports a 64-bit version of the Java Runtime Environment (Java SE 8), and a computer with a modern processor. The software comes with an installation script which can be used to help you install the software for all variants of Ubuntu. Open Ubuntu Software Center and search for the “Install a Package” option in the Applications category. Find the package named pdf2image and click on the “Install Now” button, or alternatively just drag and drop it into the Applications' folder of your system. When the application is installed you will be prompted to “Go Now”. Now you can open it to view the converted PDF file. You should see a “Processing…” screen. You are now ready to convert your PDF file to an image. If you do so successfully, the final image file will look like below. (As expected, after conversion, the file size will be slightly different from the original PDF file.) Patron's PDF2Image in action — You now have your PDF file converted to an image file.
