Convert word (doc, docx) into JPEG

office Convert Pdf to Jpg Jpeg Tiff Free
The solution begs the question ““ why convert a PDF document to a JPG image? The answer lies in the way we view PDF documents.
  • PDF requires an external application like Adobe Acrobat Reader (or any other free variants) while JPG does not.
  • Browsers have the built-in capability to display images while handling PDF documents requires an external application or plug-in which may or may not be present.
  • An external application comes with the handicap of loading times.  Plus the rendering of a PDF document happens only after the complete document is downloaded while images can be streamed in.
  • Office applications also do a better job of handling images in comparison to PDF. To cite an example, a PowerPoint presentation with an embedded image goes faster than with a PDF document.
So, in some specific cases converting your PDF documents to an image format like JPG or JPEG could be the solution we are looking for.

With increasing media size one may always get a situation when larger files cannot be send via email or cannot be shared on sharing websites like mediafire (limit 200mb), rapidshare, filesonic etc. here is when HJSplitter  comes into the picture , it split files into bite to mb sized pieces which can be rejoined to form an original file. The original file can be split according to desired sizes so that sharing according to size is not at all a problem on sharing websites or for sending files via mails.
