Click on the button on the main page that's marked "Browse." A browse window appears with all of the folders on your computer listed. Locate your PDF file and double-click on it.

Click where it reads "Output Format." A drop-down menu appears. Look for "JPG" which should be listed under "images" and select it.

Hit the "Convert" button. After a few moments a link will appear with your original file name listed, only now it has the "JPG" file extensions. Click on it to download your new JPEG to your computer.
