Sometimes, we need a couple of images in the PDF document rather than the entire file. Or we just want to convert PDF to PNG, even other image formats for different purposes. However, it is not that easy to convert PDF to PNG on mac, while still preserve the original image resolution.
This article will recommend several online and offline PDF to PNG converters for Mac users, also provides the details about how to convert PDF to PNG or other image formats on mac, like PDF to BMP, PDF to Tiff, PDF to JPG etc. clearly.

In terms of conversion quality and versatility in function, I will recommend PDF OCR Converter for Mac users, which is one of the best PDF program to do conversions on virtually all files. It allows users to:
Mac users all know that PDF files can be opened in Apple Preview. Surely, it also can convert PDF to PNG/TIFF, or other image formats on mac.
When you input “convert PDF to image” in Google Search Bar, you will get many online PDF conversion services. For those who just have a small number of PDF files needing to be converted or users rarely use PDF conversion, online PDF to image converter enough to meet their requirements. But if you get large PDFs and work with PDFs on a regular basis, online tools are not the best choice since online converters generally have a size limit on the file, and quite feature limited.
There are two online converters with relatively decent conversion effects for Mac users, users can choose according to their demands.
1. PDF Converter
PDF converter is totally free and it can convert PDF to PNG or TIFF(or other image formats) on mac.
ZAMZAR is also a free PDF file conversion, about 15 image formats are provided by it, including JPG, JPEG, PNG, GIF, DWG, PSD, etc.
Attention: Sensitive Files are Not Recommended Uploaded for Conversion Due to Potential Risk of Information Leakage.
There are 5 commonly used image formats created for different purposes: PNG, TIFF, JPEG, BMP, GIF. They are different from each other and let's find out which type should be used under different occasions.
JPEG(Joint Photographic Experts Group)
The most popular image format attributing to its web-friendly file size. This is because JPEG use a lossy compression to save image, that is to say, JPEG discard most of its information to keep the file smaller.
GIF(Graphics Interchange Format)
The most suitable for graphics, diagrams, cartoons and logos with fewer colors. That is why GIF is often used for animation effects. GIF compresses images either reducing its colors or replacing multiple patterns into one. That is to say, no matter how many red colors contained in the image, GIF saves it with only one red color.
PNG(Portable Network Graphics)
Another web-friendly image format with a shinning feature supporting 8 bit transparency. It is a more advanced version of GIF, which can save the color information more efficiently than GIF.
The image format created by Microsoft and works as the default format to set a wallpaper in Windows. It is quite rich in color, high in quality, which adversely leads to its large file size.
TIFF(Tagged Image File Format)
The most widely used industry-standard image format. It is usually uncompressed for further manipulations in extensive photo editing software, which make the file size quite bigger than other formats.
You maybe still confused about the difference between them, here I put these photos in different image formats for you to have a comparative look on them. For the reason when files in their original file size, the difference is not so obvious, so I zoom in 300% for you to have a closer look.
In most cases, we have too many choices to trouble shooting but waste too much time on finding out the one most suitable for us. Yet, it can be easy, if you get an expert. So, what’s your best solution to perform such a PDF to PNG, or to other image formats conversion on mac?
