    Okay, here's the deal.

    I have a photo that somehow managed to get to me in .pdf form. However, it's proving to be useless, unless I only want to open the file at home and look at my lovely mug there.

    Anyone have any ideas on how to convert it to .jpg or some other format? Or at least help me upload it in a viewable format? I've tried to "save as," but that doesn't seem to be an option. I'm now officially out of my element.

    I know, though, that I can view jpegs and gifs on my home machine. Okay, and bitmap, but that's not an option I really favor. I hate when pics look bitmappy.

    Any ideas? Or am I stuck with only seeing code?

    You can take it into PhotoShop and convert it.

    I can help you with that if you like...

    Do you have another graphics program such as Photoshop or Paint Shop Pro? The latter is free btw.

    Anyway, if I couldn't figure out how, what I'd do is take a screenshot (open in as a .pdf and press "print screen" which should be right above "insert" - that copies it to the clipboard) and then paste it into the graphics program, crop, and save [​IMG]

    Thanks, all. I had a redhead moment (I'm red, so it's okay ;) ). But I opened it in Photoshop, and fixed it. Now I just have to resize it and upload it.

    Phew. Again, thank you.

    Thanks, Clint. I actually just downloaded it (based, ironically, on a comment you made in another thread about image sigs - which is really why I'm doing this in the first place [​IMG] ). It's still downloading, but I've got faith. I'm trying to get it to the appropriate size. Oh well, that's the price you pay for beauty, I guess. ;)

    Point of clarification: Paint Shop Pro is not free. It's shareware, meaning the creators expect to get paid.

    And it really is a great program.

    IrfanView, however, is the top of the line when it comes to viewers/converters.
