In this article, we will see the command to use for converting PDF files to images (JPG, PNG, etc.). I have tested this command under Ubuntu 10.10 and it works smoothly, and it is expected to work on other major Linux-based distributions.

Get Started

Launch your terminal, access the folder containing your PDF file to convert, then issue this command:

 convert file.pdf file.jpg

Replace file.pdf with the name of your PDF file. Replace also file.jpg with any name of your choice for the image file to be generated out of your PDF file. You can use other image extensions (.png, .bmp, etc.). The image(s) will be generated in the current folder.
