Before we move on to a step-by-step tutorial on how to convert PDF to JPG, JPEG with Able2Extract, let’s take a couple of minutes to get our facts straight about JPG, JPEG image file format.
What is JPEG: Image File Format Explained
JPEG is an acronym for Joint Photographic Experts Group, a committee that created the JPEG standard back in 1992. JPEG’s appeal is mostly based on its image compression capabilities. It is most commonly used for storing images and posting them online. The JPEG doesn’t support transparency, but it can handle a gradation of colors perfectly.
JPEG vs JPG: Is There a Difference?
JPEG is an ISO standard for the files that can have .jpg and .jpeg extensions, but there’s no difference between them. The reason we have two different file extensions is the fact that earlier versions of Windows required any file extension to have three letters. So, the .jpeg file extension (that was used on Mac from the beginning) needed to be shortened to .jpg on Windows.
With Windows updates in the coming years, three-letter file extension restriction was gone, but we still have two image file extensions for the same standard.
Why Convert PDF to JPG, JPEG
The problem with JPEG is that every time you edit the file, the image quality decreases a little because of the recompression. Considering that PDF can serve as a container for JPEG images, they are excellent for easily transmitting high resolution, high-quality images.
This is the main reason why users often find images locked inside a PDF file. In order to use those images, they need some kind of PDF to image conversion utility. Investintech’s free online PDF to JPG converter is an example of such a tool.
