How to convert PDF to PNG in approximately 5 seconds

Bonus tip: “Batch processing” is enabled for Smallpdf Desktop. That means that you can save multiple PDFs as PNGs at once. Furthermore, you’ll see that the desktop app can also export PDF to JPG.

File Size Limitation


We know that portable network graphics (PNG) support image transparency, which can make these images quite bulky. That’s nothing you should be worried about, though, because our file size limit is capped at 5GB per file. This should be more than enough for you to successfully convert PDF to PNG without any issues.

Is This Tool Free?


Smallpdf is known for our offering of free online converters, with over 20 tools to convert, compress, and modify PDFs. Within a daily limit, you can freely use our online tools to get your work done.

Similarly, the desktop app offers a range of free features. You can compress, split, and add blank pages to your PDFs, or even add a password to your file. Conversions, like PDF to PNG, are a Pro feature. Don’t worry, you don’t have to get your wallet just yet. We offer a free trial to anyone interested, which gives you unlimited access to all Smallpdf Pro features, online and offline, for seven days. If you just want to turn a few PDFs into PNGs, that’s fine with us—just use the free trial and return to being a free Smallpdf user. If you saw the potential Smallpdf Pro has and want to continue using it, we welcome you to the family. Also check out our Business and Education plans for your office or school—we can help you streamline processes and work more efficiently with your colleagues.

Converting PNG Files


If you need to revert the process and change your PNG files back to PDF, you can access our online tools to do so. Of course, if your trial’s not expired, or you decide to opt for a Pro account, you can also do this offline.

Go Pro?


Smallpdf offers premium subscriptions at the feeble price of $9/month. It grants unlimited access to both offline and online PDF converters, enables batch processing for our website, and effectively ends all of your digital document pains.

Otherwise, our platform will remain free to use, and the desktop app always has a first-time trial activation for your needs.
