Can I convert a pdf file to jpg or jpeg with Photoshop. I was told I could. Do I need to get an upgrade to do this?
thanks

Open the JPEG file, Save As and select PDF for the format.

No upgrade needed.

(oops, yeah, I typed it backward)

Or Vice Versa:

File>Open... and select the PDF file. Choose the page(s) you want to open
File>Save As... and select JPEG for the format.

The only choice I get when I use this info is 'save as text'. That's not I want. What I need to do is convert a PDF to a JPEG.

Photoshop doesn't even have a "save as text" choice. Which application are you using?

The instructions given above work in Photoshop and Photoshop Elements.

When I click on file and save as, jpeg is not a choice I have. Maybe it's this stupid vista operating system on my computer. Would it help if I had windows XP?

Vista should work just fine - the file format choices are going to be the same regardless of OS version or platform.

Again: which application are you using? What you are describing does not sound like Photoshop or Photoshop Elements.

The only time JPEG would not be available as a format when saving is when the document is 16 or 32 bit/channel, or in a color mode that LAB doesn't support.

Opening a PDF, and saving it as a JPEG file should be just as simple as we said above.

If you are using Adobe Acrobat then you select "File" "Export to" "Image" "jpeg"
