PDF to Any is a small but useful application that allows you to convert one or more PDF files into different image formats. Converting PDF to images offers the advantage of letting you view the documents without installing any additional application.

The image formats supported are: PS (PostScript), PCL (Printer Command Language), TIF (Tagged Image File, JPG (JPEG), BMP (bitmap), GIF (Graphics Interchange Format), PCX, PNG (Portable Network Graphics), EMF (Enhanced MetaFile), CPS (XML Paper Specification), and PLT (Graphics Plot File).

Some formats require extra stuff to work: The PS (PostScript) requires the OakDoc PS Writer, the PCL requires the OakDoc PLC Writer, and the PLT requires the OakDoc HP.GL/2 Writer.

To convert files you first need to add the PDF files either by using drag and drop, selecting an entire folder, or adding the files to convert one by one. Next, you need to select the image output format and set other options such as the Dots per inch, adjust the settings, and choose the output path.

Each page of the PDF files will be converted into one image. Only the TIFF format allows you to save each page into one multi-page image file. All the image formats have different customizable settings, e.g., the TIFF format allows you select the color palette, compression method, etc.
