PDF to PNG conversion
If you have a single or multiple page pdf file, you may,want to share a page on a website or on social media. If you can't upload the pdf directly or need to upload in a graphics format. This how_to will explain how to export a page in PNG (Portable Network Graphics) format.
Firstly the steps were undertaken using:-
- Debian Linux 10
- GIMP 2.10.8
The first step is to Open the PDF file in Gimp.
The next step is to choose the page of the PDF file you wish to import.
You will now see the page has been imported in to Gimp
Now go to File —> Export As
You then see the file type box.
From here, delete the extension from the file name (as in the .png part) at the top, then select png from the select file type list at the bottom.
Make sure the file type is selected
Select Export (bottom right
If you don't get any errors you should get the box below
I didn't want to set any options here so just went ahead and selected Export
After which the newly created png file is displayed
You can now go back and select other pages to export.
Hopefully this How_to is useful.
Thank you to Andrew at Boost Torbay for suggesting I use gimp or Photoshop to do this.
