Hi all,

I have a PDF file full of pictures and I wnt to convert it to word file in full (with all pictures and tables and in two columns). I have the full acrobat version, I have tried save as function but in vain.

Now I wonder if adobe distiller can do this and how.

Many Thanks
Sabry

OCR software plus Acrobat for image export Oct 23, 2004

Hi Sabry,

Distiller won't help you - it's used to convert PS files to PDF. Generally, one option is to use an OCR program to convert the PDF file to Word. Unless the PDF file is protected, you can use the File/Export/Image as TIF option to save the images. For smaller documents, Adobe Illustrator might be another option to look into.

You could try this: copy & paste, but only do small selections of your PDF at a time. So for instance copy one picture, paste it into your Word document and so on. Word will convert everything you paste into its own format, so will have to be prepared to spend a bit of time re-aligning your paragraphs, pictures etc.
This may be successful if the fonts used in the PDF are installed in your PC, and .jpeg pictures (in the PDF) will probably remain as.jpeg in Word.
Otherwise it is very hard to 'go-back' on a pdf, as a pdf is generally seen as an output version of a document, that is: all the editing is complete and is not to be altered.
