OSX Tip: 3 Export Files as Images

Similar my previous posts I talked about how powerful Preview can be for manipulating files. In this tip we talk about converting between different file types. Sometimes you may have an image that you want to convert to a PDF or vise versa.

To get started open your file by double clicking or right clicking it & click Open with Preview:

 

Once in Preview click on File and then Export:

On the next screen you will choose where you will save your file. You will also need to click where it says format to choose what you want to save it as.

Click Save:

Your file will now appear where you saved it as a different format.
