Convert your PDF to JPG: 3 Very Easy Ways

  • August 3, 2011

Convert your PDF to JPG: 3 Very Easy WaysIt’s only natural. Just because you have a computer that can handle all kind of files and documents you assume everybody else has a computer that can do exactly the same. But the truth couldn’t be more removed from that. Not everybody has a computer that can play .AVI files, for example. And not everybody has a computer that can open and display PDFs either.

In all cases, the one way out of trouble is to play things as safe as possible, and send your contacts the type of files even an Atari ST could handle. Take everything to its simplest denominator. And as far as PDFs are concerned, that implies having them turned into the kind of files just anybody could visualize: JPGs. There?s no personal computer that could fail to open such images. All computers can do it by default, without users having to download anything or launching any kind of conflictive application.

The objective of this post is to introduce you to some of the better applications that can assist you in such a conversion task.

In general, you must know that there are two ways to get that job done: by using web-based tools, and by downloading and installing a file conversion tool in your computer.

From PDF to JPG on the Web

There is no shortage of browser-based conversion tools you can use for free, and without the need to even register first. A really popular one is Zamzar. Its free version will let you upload and convert as much as five files at the same time, amounting to 100 MB. All you have to do is to upload them (or point the application to where they’re found online) for them to be rendered into the relevant output format (JPG in this case). They will be delivered straight to your inbox – your email address is the one and only piece of information you must supply.

And a very good alternative to Zamzar is the one provided by Neevia Technology, a purveyor of edocument solutions. This company offers a web interface for uploading files that is really simple to use, and that comes with some features not readily available elsewhere (much les for free), such as being able to set down the resolution of what you are converting and the overall image quality. And something as vital as being able to encrypt what you are converting by password-protecting it and making the image unprintable is made possible in a mere couple of clicks. So is watermarking your image.

The only downside of Neevia Technology is the upload limit, which is really harsh (1 MB per file).

From PDF to JPG on your desktop

In general, people resort to desktop converters not because the image quality is better or anything like that, but simply because they are much safer to use. There is information that no sound person would ever upload to the Internet. Who knows who might end up seeing it? These desktop conversion tools are the only safe way to keep such documents ensconced in your computer, and converted far from prying eyes.

PDF-Xchange Viewer for Windows is the one I want to bring to your attention right now, because its free version is capable of taking any document of yours and have it rendered into a JPEG, BMP or a PNG file. When doing so, you can tweak with aspects like its resolution, its page zoom and even the background to be used.

And PDF-Xchange Viewer has the added plus of letting you visualize PDFs, and annotate them as largely as you might want. That is, it lets people both open and edit documents with the same speed and ease.

More importantly, PDF-Xchange Viewer is a self-contained application. You won’t have to install any drivers in order to use it (a problem with other tools for the conversion of images).

So, there you go. I am sure any of the three applications introduced above will let you have any PDF of yours converted and rendered into a JPG anybody could handle. Personally, I always head to the Neevia Technology website in order to have PDFs processed because of the many encryption services that are offered, and that can be implemented with zero effort. But all three services are excellent, and they can all be used for free to begin with. Convert your PDF to JPG: 3 Very Easy Ways

  • July 5, 2011

FreeFileConvert.comNot all of us have the fanciest computers around. I am sure everybody can tell a tale or two of how he got his hands on a long-sought movie only to find that his PC could only play it back in a way bearing more resemblance to watching a slideshow than an actual movie. And then how he had to look online for online file converters in a bid to have the offending file turned into something slightly more manageable.

There are currently lots and lots of places you could point your browser to for having your files converted online, but this is a particularly good one for the simple reason that it lets you manage videos, images and documents using a unified dashboard. On you simply choose the file to be converted from your computer (or supply its URL) and pick the desired output format for it to be processed.

When the file is ready, then you can have it downloaded straight in the desired format or as a .ZIP archive. The output file is going to be stored on the servers for 12 hours.

Inspectlet.comIt would be great if you could know how your visitors react to your content and to every change in layout that you make to your site, in a measurable way.

Well, Inspectlet is a web analytics application that can do exactly that. It can capture screens, and provide you both with real-time analytics and custom metrics.

More – Quizzes For Segmenting Your Traffic

  • December 9, 2010

QuizFunnel.comThis is a new application that will let any webmaster take his conversion rates higher by embedding an interactive quiz on his site. Such a quiz will act as true funnel system, since the ones who take it will receive a personal evaluation at the end of it. That will get people more interested in taking the quiz – anything that seems tailor-made always appeals to people far more than something which is generic.

The interesting bit, now, is that after the person has filled the quiz he will be faced with an opt-in box. Only if he submits his e-mail address will he receive his personalized report. And this opt-in will be different from user to user, according to how the person has answered the questions on the quiz.

In this way, it is easy for a webmaster to segment his traffic into several different autoresponders, and have visitors targeted with absolute accuracy. And the more someone gets to know his visitors, then the better he you can market what he does.

Right now, QuizFunel can be tried at a special promotional price. And you can always start a 14-day trial and get to see it in action for yourself before signing up in earnest.

More – Convert Videos For Free

  • October 10, 2010

FreeVideoConversion.netTrue to its name, the Free Video Conversion website will let you take as many clips as you want and have them converted into formats that (for example) could be reproduced on mobile devices, or on computers that are a bit limited in terms of hardware.

That process is as simple as uploading your video and then choosing the output format that would work for you.

Avi, mpg, mpeg, mov, flv, mp4 and ogg are just some of the many formats that are currently supported.

Some might complain that the upload limit is a bit constricting, and they would be definitely right – you can’t upload files bigger than 40 MB. That reduces the files that you are converting mostly to music videos and clips that are short by definition, like skits and so on.

Also, I feel that forcing you to upload the file yourself in each and every case is not that wise. You should also be able to specify a URL and have the video processed like that. These are some things that should be addressed as soon as possible, if only because most sites that compete with this one offer all these options and features.

Also, you don’t need to install any kind of software in order to use PadiTrack. You don’t need to add any kind of tracking code to your website either. PadiTrack integrates with Google Analytics, and that is where it pulls its data directly from.

Fileminx.comFileminx is a browser-hosted application that will let you take care of the conversion of files such as documents, videos and images.

Just imagine this scenario.

Someone gives you a short clip that he has filmed using his iPhone at a show you wanted to attend but ended up missing. Yet, your usual media player can’t open it because it doesn’t support that mobile format. When that happens, you can head straight to the Fileminx website, upload the file and choose one that is more commonplace.

In the example, if the clip your friend had shot was a .MOV you can proceed to have it converted into an .AVI. The same goes for any image that is in a format you can’t view, or any document that was created using a word processor which is not that widespread. Just pick one of the most popular file formats available and that will be the end of it.

The site is entirely free to use, and you don’t have to sign up in order to convert anything. In that sense, it is an entirely open service. You have to make sure that the files you are submitting are smaller than 50 MB, but that’s all you will have to worry about.
