Step 1: Open the PDF File in Adobe Acrobat Reader
The first step is to open the PDF file in Adobe Acrobat Reader. If you don’t have it installed on your computer, you can download it for free from the official website of Adobe.
Step 2: Select the Image You Want to Extract
Once you have opened the PDF file, navigate to the page containing the image you want to extract. Click on the “Tools” tab and select “Select & Zoom” followed by “Select Tool”.
Step 3: Extract the Image
Now, click and drag the cursor around the image to select it. Once you have selected the image, right-click on it and select “Copy Selected Graphic”.
Step 4: Paste the Image
Open an image editing software like Microsoft Paint or Adobe Photoshop and paste the copied image. You can now save the image in any format you prefer.
Step 5: Repeat the Process
If you want to extract more images from the same PDF file, repeat the process starting from step 2.
Step 6: Remove Password Protection (if needed)
If the PDF file is password protected, you will need to remove the password protection before you can extract the images. To do this, open the PDF file in Adobe Acrobat Reader and enter the password to unlock it. Then, navigate to “File”> “Properties”> “Security” and select “No Security” from the drop-down menu.
Step 7: Save Changes
After you have extracted all the images you need and removed the password protection (if needed), don’t forget to save the changes you made to the PDF file.
