How to Convert PDF to JPG on Google Drive? (Simple Steps)

There are many reasons why someone might need to convert a PDF to a JPG. If you need to edit the images in a PDF, it can be easier to do that with a JPG file, or sometimes it is easier to print individual pages or images from a JPG instead of a PDF. No matter your reason, you need to know how to quickly and easily convert a PDF to a JPG.

Google Drive is free to use and accessible to almost all people. Google Drive has lots of tools that you can use to edit and convert PDFs, and it's also very easy to use.

In this article, you will learn how to convert PDF to JPG in Google Drive with step by step instructions. We will also discuss an alternative to Google Drive if you prefer to know a different method to convert PDF to JPG.

Part 1. How to Convert PDF to JPG in Google Drive?

Converting a PDF to JPG in Google Drive seems pretty simple to do, but there are some steps involved that make it a more complicated process than you might think. You will not be able to directly convert the PDF to JPG using Google's built-in tools. You will need to connect a file converting tool to your Google Drive.

You can follow the steps below to use Google Drive to convert a PDF to a JPG.

Step 1: Click "New" > "More" > "Connect more apps".

Step 2: In the window that pops up, search for "file converter". Choose the best add-on that works for you. In this case, we selected the first option. Click "Install" and answer the questions that appear on the screen.

Step 3: After the file convert add-on has finished installing, upload the PDF you want to convert into Google Drive.

Step 4: Click the three dots to the right of your PDF, then "Open with" > "File Converter".

Step 5: Scroll down to the file that you want to convert your PDF to, and click on it. In this case, we'll select to convert it to a JPG.

Step 6: This window will open, and you will see your PDF file at the bottom of the screen. At this point, if you want to convert another PDF, you can also add it here. When you're ready to convert your PDF to a JPG, click "Start".

Step 7: To save your JPG file, click "Download", and you're done! From here you can email the JPG, save it to your Google Drive, or open it in another program.

Part 2. Convert PDF to JPG Without Google Drive

While you definitely can convert a PDF to JPG in Google Drive, you can see that there are many steps, and you have to install a third-party add-on to make it possible. Google Drive also will not work if you don't have access to the internet. With Google Drive you also cannot select which pages to convert to a JPG, or customize what part of the page will be converted.

If you want a simpler solution, you can use UPDF to convert a PDF to a JPG. UPDF doesn't require a third-party add-on, and it makes converting files very quick and easy. With UPDF you can edit the PDF, such as cropping the page, editing the content, annotating, and more, before converting your file to a JPG.

Sometimes you might need to convert just one page of a PDF into a JPG, such as one section of a presentation or one page of a multipage form. It's very easy to do this using UPDF, and you can follow the directions below to convert one page of a PDF into a JPG.

Step 1: Open the PDF that you want to work with, and click "Crop Pages" from the left menu.

Click "Split".

Step 3: After splitting your PDF pages, you can export the PDF as a JPG. Click "Export PDF" > "Image".

Step 4: Select JPEG from the image choices, and click "Export". Select the folder where you want to save your image file, and a new window will pop up with the split JPEGs.
