    Convert PDF documents?

    pwillener Level 8

      For once I have a question...

       

      I have a couple of PDF forms that I need to fill in.  Unfortunately these things were not created fillable, so I have to print them, and fill them manually.

       

      But I am not used to hand-write in such forms, and I recently threw out my old typewriter when I moved to a new place.

       

      My question: is there a way to convert a PDF document into an image - GIF, JPG,  PNG - or Word document, so I can fill it with an image processing program or Word, then print it out from there?

          Stupid me!  First I post a question here, then I go on Google and search...

           

          Naturally I found dozens of free online conversion sites, both to Word and image formats.

           

          I have already completed the conversions, so I have answered the question myself...

           

          Stupid me!

            You must have been luckier than me! I have found many programs claiming to convert PDF forms into fillable versions, but not one really works. I would be very grateful if you could tell me the site/program you are successfully using.

              Sorry, you must have misread my post.

               

              I was looking (and finding) a program or site that converts a PDF file into an image, that I later modified (inserted text) with an imaging program like Photoshop or Paint Shop Pro.
