PDF to PNG: Today, the PDF format is one of the most popular for saving and sharing electronic documents. However, it is sometimes necessary to convert a PDF file into one of the many graphic formats, such as PNG, GIF, and Bitmap. Universal Document Converter is the optimal solution for this type of conversion. With Universal Document Converter, users can easily and quickly create graphic files from PDF files using virtual printing.

How to Convert a PDF File to PNG

To convert your PDF files to the PNG image format, you can use Universal Document Converter as a virtual printer. It will not actually “print” your files. Instead, it will convert them to the desired format (in our case, PNG).

To convert a PDF file to PNG, download and install Universal Document Converter. Then, please follow this manual:

  1. Open your PDF file and press File->Print in Adobe Reader’s menu.
  2. Select Universal Document Converter from the list of printers and click on Advanced.
  3. Select PNG image as the output format and click OK.

Avoiding the Issue of Corrupted Fonts by Using “Print as an Image”

Sometimes, the fonts and images contained in the PDF file may not print accurately on paper, even though they may be well represented on the computer screen. This is because the different algorithms used by programs like Adobe Reader may not be interpreted correctly by other programs and devices.

Universal Document Converter can help solve this problem. Please follow these instructions:

  1. Open your PDF file and press File->Print in Adobe Reader’s menu.
  2. Select Universal Document Converter from the list of printers and click on Advanced.
  3. Click on “Print as image” as shown in the screenshot below.
  4. Click OK to save the introduced settings and click Print to start the PDF to PNG conversion process.

Converting PDF to PNG in Batch Mode

Print Conductor – the software that accompanies Universal Document Converter, is designed to help you convert your files in batch mode. You can convert any number of files saved in PDF format to PNG:

  1. Launch Print Conductor and add your PDF files to the list.
  2. Select the Universal Document Converter printer.
  3. Click on “Change Settings” and specify “PNG Image” as the output file type.
  4. Click Start to convert multiple PDF files to PNG.

Automating PDF to PNG Conversion in the Office

Automatic conversion is particularly useful in the office environment, as it can free employees from additional work. FolderMill – another software associated with Universal Document Converter, will be able to sort files according to your preferences and convert them to the desired format, if necessary. Two folders will need to be created for each employee: one for incoming files, and another for output files. Each employee can set a specific rule for all incoming files, for example, that all files arriving on their computer in PDF format should be converted to PNG. As soon as the rule is set, the conversion is performed automatically.
