PDFZilla releases PDF to JPG Converter for Mac
PDFZilla has announced the release of their free PDF-to-image converter tool for Mac, allowing users to export PDF documents to JPG files. Included is a DPI option, which means that uses can select a high output DPI value -- like 200 or 400 -- and the converted images will maintain a high quality resolution and large print margin. The DPI value can be changed for thumbnail images as well, with 32- and 64-bit options. PDF to JPG Converter for Mac's image format converter has a batch mode, and can convert a large quantity of files at once. Restricted files can be converted easily, and do not require the owner's password to do so. Free to download, PDF to JPG Converter for Mac requires OS X 10.8 or later.
