A techno odyssey

PDQ item on PDFs

leave a comment »

I have a ton of stored-up items about skills I have acquired, or sort of acquired, from the deadline-driven race to finish my mom’s book. Until I get that book done, I wasn’t planning to post all the tech things I’ve learned. But this is fast.

If you need to transfer an image from a PDF, here’s the how-to from Adobe Reader Help:

“Use the Snapshot tool to copy pictures from a PDF.

1. Choose Tools > Select & Zoom > Snapshot Tool Snapshot tool.
2. Drag a rectangle around the image you want to save, and then release the mouse button.

The selection is automatically copied to the clipboard, and you can choose Edit > Paste in another application to paste the copied image into another document.”

That’s assuming you’ve installed Adobe Reader. But that’s an item for another time.
