Benefits of Converting a PDF to JPG Image

Emails

For one, PDF documents can be large. If you were ever trying to send an email to a person, and the email attachment limit gets exceeded, the best way to avoid that problem is by converting it into a JPG. A JPG image would be the compressed version of the PDF you are trying to send. If a PDF document is 25 MB, converting that into a JPG, depending on your compression settings, can turn the file into 15 MB or less.

Another benefit of converting your documents into images are to avoid errors or corruption when sending it over via Outlook or other email problems. PDF data will sometimes get corrupted and become unusable on the receivers end.

Websites & Online Services

If you are a website owner and want to place PDF graphics on your website. The best way to do that is by converting it into a JPG image first. Converting your PDF into a JPG will be more suitable for websites because of image size. One of the main practices to follow on any website is to make sure that it loads fast. This is why JPG images are popular and used as the standard file format for the web.

Other image sharing websites like Imgur, Pinterest, and Instagram don’t allow you to upload PDF graphics. Converting to a JPG image first will fix that problem and allow you to upload.

SMS Text Messages

Avoid sending large PDF documents to family, friends, or associates. Convert your PDF first into a JPG before sending it. For starters, not everyone has a PDF reader installed. If someone has to download and install one first, then go back to their text message to open the document, that will become annoying and time consuming. A plus is, when you send a JPG image over a text message, that image is almost instantly available and view-able to the user when sent.

 

Overview

Having the ability to convert any PDF into a JPG image has many advantages. JPG is the standard when it comes to web images because of file size and loading speeds. Not every device or online platform supports PDF’s. To work around those issues, converting your document into an image is usually the best course of action. Alternatively, if you want to send someone a PDF document without converting it, you can use a cloud storage service for transferring files.
