Have you ever needed to extract images from a PDF file? This might be easy for one image, but for tens of images in one or multiple PDF files, you need to do this automatically. There are free simple tools that make the process easier and faster.
With this free online tool ExtractPDF.com, you can extract images or text from a PDF document with size up to 10mb. Just upload your PDF file or enter a URL to the PDF, and click “Send File”. In a few seconds of uploading and processing, you find the extracted data in the tabbed pane.
The first tab is called “Images” and it includes all the images found in the PDF file. You can check them online or you can click an image to download it to your computer; you can also use the button “Download all images as zip file”.
The second tab is called “Text” and it displays the first lines of the PDF file. If you need to download the whole text, use the button “Download result as file”. There are two other tabs for “Fonts” and “Metadata”.
