Pull out an image from within a PDF using Photoshop CS2

Added on Wednesday 4th of November 2009 09:23 am EST


Unless you have Adobe Acrobat Professional, you can't edit PDF files. You can, however, open PDFs in Photoshop CS2. But what if you just want to repurpose an image that's in a PDF file? No problem!

To extract an image from a PDF:
1. Launch Photoshop and choose File > Open.
2. Select the PDF file that contains the image you want to use and click Open.
3. Select the page in the preview window on which the image exists and choose Image from the Select pop-up menu, as shown in FIGURE A.
4. Click OK to open just the image and not the entire page.
