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.
Step 3: Click the “Settings” button at the right side of the window.
Step 4: Click the drop-down menu to the right of “Resolution,” click your desired resolution, then click “OK.”
Step 5: Click “Save.”
