How to Export PDF to High Quality Image

Thank you for your question. By default, Adobe Standard will export the PDF files into a medium quality image. This results in the exported image being of poor quality. See the example below:

As you can see, the exported image file became grainy and the text is barely readable. By default, Adobe Standard will export a PDF file to a poor quality image. Here are the steps to exporting the PDF file to a high quality image which will preserve the original quality of the PDF file.

  • Open the PDF File using Adobe Standard.
  • Click on File > Export > Image > JPEG. A dialog box will open.
  • Click on Settings button on the dialog box.
  • From Grayscale dropdown menu, select JPEG (Quality: Maximum).
  • From the Color dropdown menu, select JPEG (Quality: Maximum).
  • You can also select a high resolution from the Resolution dropdown menu.
  • Click OK and then click Save.
  • The resulting exported image will be of high quality.
