I've got a neat photo of my late father on a pdf document. I'd like to put it on Facebook for the benefit of relatives and friends but it needs to be in a FB useable format like jpg. Short of printing it out then scanning it, can anyone suggest a way of converting it to jpg or any other FB-friendly format?

Try googling "extract photo from PDF"

Hey Bill – so simple; why didn't I think of that . Photoshop did it in 5 seconds after I got the idea from the Google search.

If your computer has the Snipping Tool feature, you can use it to select part or all of what's on your screen. You can save the image as HTML, JPEG, GIF, or PNG.

Adobe Reader 11 has a 'take a snapshot' function in the edit menu.
From there all you have to do is paste into Paint or another graphics program and save as a jpg.

Depending on how the picture is embedded in, sometimes you can just click on the picture and it will be selected. You can right click and select COPY. Then paste it in MS Paint (or photoshop or whatever)
Or just ALT-Printscreen

Thanks for the input.
As I said above, once I'd Googled the question, a solution using Photoshop was suggested and that did the trick – very easy and straightforward.

Since you've already done it, would you like twelve more methods? :)

Actually, people do occasionally dig though old TMP topics looking for ideas.
Another dozen methods could be of interest to someone else down the line.
