Following an extremely easy and straightforward step-by-step approach, PDF Image Extraction Wizard will allow you to extract as JPG, TIFF, BMP, TGA, or PNG files all or selected images present in any PDF file. Likewise, this free tool can also convert all or a set of pages from the original PDF into individual image files in any of the formats supported. Its wizard-based approach makes it suitable for all types of users.
The fact that the program guides you through the entire process doesn’t mean that you’re not in control. On each step of the way, you’re offered options and settings that will determine which images are extracted, from which pages, with what quality, etc. First, you have to select the PDF file or files whose images you want to save separately and the folder where you want them to be stored. To help you identify which image is which, the program will code each resulting file using the name of the source PDF and – if so desired – the number of the page it was taken from. The next step will ask you to define the page range, which – by default – includes the entire document. If the PDF is password-protected, this is where you should provide the user and master passwords required for the program to access the source file.
Once you’ve told the program what it is that you want to extract – the images or the entire pages – you will be allowed to define which images will be extracted (using their size as a differentiating factor), if the images will be merged, rotated, or flipped on the fly, and if duplicate images are to be skipped or not. On the next step, you will be presented with the last two choices, this time regarding output formats – namely, what to do with JPEG images and the codec to be used for lossless compressed images. As soon as you make your choice and move to the next step, the program will be ready to start the extraction process for you.
The results are saved in the folder of your choice and with the exact level of the quality you selected. The entire process is fast and efficient, thus making PDF Image Extraction Wizard a tool that anyone working with PDFs and image files can afford not to have installed on their system.
