Working with PDFs is a common aspect of many people’s jobs. Whether you are in the office, working from home, or working from a school, it is likely that at some point you will have to work with PDFs to create some type of document or at the very least edit one. This can be many things though. For instance, you could need to create a fillable online PDF, or you could need to create an invoice or even merge two PDFs using the merge PDF tool. There are many things that you can do when working with PDFs and PDF editors. Some of these things are not as official or at least not as obvious. One of these things is the media aspect of PDFs. PDFs are image files and thus can be edited like one. This means that you can not only input text but also images. Being able to work with media and your PDF will allow you to explore your creativity and realize what you can do using this tool.
Including media in your PDF will make it have more flair and increase the attention to detail that others see. This can be done in a few different ways. Firstly, you can use the add image tool to add your company’s logo to the document. This can make a document or presentation seem more professional and can even act as a way to secure and stake ownership over a document. Another thing you can do with media and A PDF editor is add a background to your PDF. If you are in the tech world, having a flash and interesting presentation or report can be augmented by using a technical image in the background that shows off what you are doing as a company and accentuates the ways your company can help and work with others in the industry. Using this tool is easy depending on which PDF editor you are using, but where can we get background images from?
Image Websites and Databases
While it might at first seem daunting to attempt to find an image file that can not only suit your purpose but also come without costs or hassle. The first way that might come to people’s minds is by using Google images. This can pull up millions of images but you will notice many of them are saturated with watermarks or do not lead you to the exact image itself. This is the problem with using such a broad search option. While it can find what you need, there are no guarantees that you will be able to use the files. This is why one of the better options is to use an image-hosting website.
Some of these online imaging hosting sites have great databases and selections. Even in this article, you will see some good examples of them in use. One example of this is by using Pexels (which I personally use). Pexels offers thousands of great free images for almost any purpose. If you do not find what you are looking for on Pexels, luckily, there are many great alternatives. One of these amazing alternatives is Unsplash. Unsplash is another free image hosting platform with a wide range of images to choose from. In addition to these, there are many more that are available to be used. Just remember to give credit to the person who created the image, this helps keep such places free.
Free Graphic Design Platforms
Once you have used one of these free image hosting platforms, you will need to be able to work with the document. If you are working with non-PDF documents, there are some interesting media-creating platforms. One of these is Canva. Canva lets you use images to create ads and posts with premade templates and graphics. It is free, but some options are for premium users. Another platform that is widely used is Visme. By using Canva or Visme you can take images and put them together into useful media that can be used for a wide range of purposes.
Convert PDF to Image
Although PDFs are very useful, there are times when we will need some other type of file such as a jpeg. This can seem frustrating, but it doesn’t need to be. One of the best things about working with PDF editors is that they can be used to convert PDFs. By using the convert PDF tool, you can take a PDF and convert it into a Word Doc, or in this case an image file. Once you have used this convert PDF tool, you will be able to take the former PDF and use it in some other ways, such as using Canva to make an Instagram post. The only limit is your imagination.
How to Convert PDF to JPG Free Online
If you do not have an online PDF editor there are other options, there are free tools online that can help you do this. While it is better to use a PDF editor, these free sites will do the job. Sites such as pdftoimage allow users to take a PDF and then convert it into an image. Remember to be careful when using free sites though as there are sometimes potential security ramifications that you might have to deal with, as some PDFs are considered secure.
How to Convert PDF to Image Offline
If you are trying to convert a PDF to an image file without being online is tricky, or at least it seems like it is. There is a special trick that you can use to do this. You can take a screenshot. This is not the most advanced way, but if you are working offline, it is an option. Once you have used your device to take a screenshot, then you will have an image of the PDF. Although this is not ideal, it does allow you to convert it to an image file, and ultimately when working on media-based projects for business, results are what matter.
