Can I import from pdf?

Developers mailing list
Hi

I am an average computer user.  I use an i-mac laptop and have files in pdf format that I wish to change into jpeg.  Can this be done using Gimp?  I would like to create a jpeg image of individual pages.

Thanks

Ash

you should be able to  do this - when opening the PDF file in GIMP you
get a dialog where you can select what pages to load in what resolution
to render them in, and then this has happened you can export the image
as shown as a JPEG file.

There are different approaches and tools that can make this a lot
faster, especially if you have PDF files with many pages or many files -
ImageMagick is a common go-to utility for this and available for many
platforms.
