In this article, you will find 5 different ways on how to save one page of a PDF as a new PDF, an image, a Word document, or as other types of files on Mac, Windows, iOS and Android.

Here’s the scenario. There’s a 235 pages PDF file. And you want to email only one page of this large file to someone. Instead of sending the entire file, you will want to save that one page from the file and then send it. You can choose to save this specific page as a new PDF, an image, etc. Also, if it’s a scanned PDF, you choose to save a page of it as a new searchable selectable PDF or an editable document. This article will show you how.


Method 1. Use Cisdem PDF Converter OCR | Mac

Cisdem PDF Converter OCR for Mac is a powerful all-around tool to extract PDF pages, merge PDF files, OCR PDF/image, convert PDF to other formats, create PDF, remove PDF password and compress PDF.

If you have no idea how to save one page of a PDF on Mac, you can check out this tool which provides 5 PDF saving solutions.

#1 Save one page of a PDF as a new PDF, an image, an editable document, etc.

You can use Cisdem PDF Converter OCR to easily extract a single page (e.g. 5), pages within a range (e.g. 2-19), multiple selected pages (e.g. 8, 15, 25, 32-49, 93) from a multipage PDF.

#2 Save only text from one page of a scanned/image-based PDF

Cisdem PDF Converter OCR does a good job to save one page of PDF to desired format. At the same time, it also allows you to save only the text from one specific page of a scanned/image-based (or native) PDF.

This is especially useful if you want to save selected text from a scanned/image-based PDF page because you can’t select and copy text from a scanned page like you would do with a native selectable PDF page.

When extracting a page containing text, images, tables, etc., you can use Cisdem PDF Converter OCR’s OCR Recognition Adjustment feature to ignore images & other elements and only extract the selected text. And then you can save the text content as a new PDF, a Word document, or a different format of your choice.

Alternatively, you can use the recommended tool to save one page of a PDF to as an editable document such as Word, delete images and other elements except for text, and save the text to a desired format.

#3 Save only image from one page of a PDF

The Extract Image feature allows you to save only the image from one page of a PDF, native or scanned. It can automatically detect if there are images in the selected PDF page. To use this feature to save only the image from one PDF page, just enter the page number and disable the OCR feature. From the output dropdown list, choose Extract Image. Click Convert.

#4 Batch save the selected one page from multiple PDFs at the same time

Suppose you need to save page 2 from PDF file A, page 5 from file B and page 20 from file C. Just add files A, B and C to this tool simultaneously and select the page and output format separately.

#5 Save an entire PDF as images, or an editable document, or an e-book, etc.

In addition to saving one page of a PDF, you can also use this tool to save an entire native/scanned PDF to Word, Excel and other supported output formats including images (which will be kept in a automatically created new folder, with images named by corresponding page numbers). Also, it can save an entire scanned PDF to a new searchable, selected PDF.
