When everything is correct you simply choose the print option for your application, select PDFCreator as your printer and produce a PDF file for further use elsewhere.

The driver also has output options to a wide range of graphics formats for manipulation inside a video editor if that is to be the final output media

This is a small add-on to windows that I find is one of my base install items, have been using it for many years without any issue
Thank you for responding and for the link to a new PDF reader. My brain is getting a bit fuzzy trying to absorb all of the new information that I have been given here. My goal is to rotate an existing PDF file and then export it as a jpg file. I have not yet learned how to do that.

I have been able to rotate a pdf file exactly as I want it and save it as a jpg file in PowerPoint. However, when I used the resulting jpg file in Paint.Net it had been reduced in size, making the text too small to use in a video.

The software I linked to is not actually a PDF Reader, but a special type of PDF creator.


When installed the software creates a new Printer in your printers list

printing to this printer, from any application, rather than actually physically print creates a PDF file in a location you choose.

As it is also capable of producing graphical images, such as JPG or PNG it can easily be used to convert a PDF to a JPG, (or other format required)

To do this you would open your PDF in any reader you prefer and "print" it to the PDFCreator "printer", In the setting dialog you can then set JPG as the output, (and set size, resolution etc), and the image file will be created for import into your Movie

Hope this explains things

Thank you. I downloaded and used PDF Creator and it did save the file as a jpg. So it does work and does what I hoped to be able to do. It did only save the first part of my PDF file as jpg and it says use this program to print jpg one at a time. DO I will puzzle with that a bit, but my problem seems to be solved. Thank you very much.

Here to help

The program has a myriad of output options for all of it's output formats - it can take a little work to get things exactly how you need them, once you do get the output you need you can save them as a preset for future use.

I use it mostly for sending documents in PDF format to clients, (a PDF is a lot more secure from the client changing things that a DOCx or similar format), as it tends to be more flexible than the PDF output from applications such as word.

Thank you for all of the detailed information and instructions. I appreciate you taking the time to share all of that with me. I have downloaded PDF Creator and am learning how to use it. My problem is solved. Thanks to you and everyone who pitched in to help me. I am certainly glad that I asked this Forum for help.
