export an image of a PAGE from a pdf (vector)

Oct 29, 2012 7:06 PM

i have a set of architectural drawings in pdf format and one of the pages had the logo cut off. i am trying to edit this in a IMAGE FILE format in photoshop (i need to add some border and fix the logo) but this set of drawings is in a five page pdf.


the drawings will be posted to the web and they are specifically requesting IMAGE FILES.


is there a way to export ONE PAGE from this five page pdf or to do something other than take a screenshot on my mac? i am assuming that some kind of export to raster image will have a much higher resolution than taking a screenshot.

    Sure. For exmaple, in Acrobat 9 you can select: File > Export Image > JPEG|JPEG2000|PNG|TIFF


    In Acrobat 11: File > Save As Other > Image > JPEG|JPEG2000|PNG|TIFF


    When the Save As dialog appears, there is a Settings button that allows you to soecify various options such as resolution, compression, and color settings, depending on what format you want. Since you just want to do a simgle page, you might want to extract that page (Document > Extract Pages [A9] or Tools > pages Extract [A11]) first to a new PDF and then convert to image.

    Or, if you want to edit in Photoshop, just open the PDF in Photoshop.
