Convert Each Page of a Multi-Page PDF to An Individual File

In many instances, having multiple images or multiple documents combined into one file can be a convenience. However, if you need to perform certain tasks, it may be necessary to split the file into multiple files. This can be accomplished with Adobe Acrobat X Standard. Upon performing the necessary steps you will ultimately have a PNG file for each page of your document, and you can even choose to customize the output files with a minimal loss of quality.


Step 1: Right-click your multi-page PDF file, click “Open With,” then click “Adobe Acrobat.”


Step 2: Click “File” at the top of the window, click “Save As,” click “Image,” then click “PNG.” You also have the option of saving as a TIFF or JPEG image, if necessary, but my experience has been that the output PNG files can be customized to have higher quality.


Click Save As, click Image, then click PNG


Step 3: Click the “Settings” button at the right side of the window.

Click Settings


Step 4: Click the drop-down menu to the right of “Resolution,” click your desired resolution, then click “OK.”

Select the resolution


Step 5: Click “Save.”

Save the file
