This application was designed to help you extract pages from your PDF documents and save them as individual image files. Purely PDF To Image supports batch conversion, lets you preview the input documents, and immediately offers you the image files you need.
After you import the files you wish to convert, the program lets you choose the preferred output profile, and preview the documents before launching the conversion process. The utility then immediately exports the quality image files within directories that are named like the input PDFs.
An important aspect is that the program preserves the quality of the PDF documents, but when you choose which PDF pages to convert to image formats - the application converts the entire document.
You can use Mac's default image viewer (Preview) for exporting PDF documents to formats like JPEG, OpenEXR, PNG or TIFF. Hence, the difference between using Preview and Purely PDF To Image to convert PDFs to photo formats lies in their output profiles list (the latter misses OpenEXR and TIFF output profiles but supporting BMP and GIF).
In conclusion, it's worth installing this program on your Mac only if you need to convert PDFs to BMP and GIF formats. Otherwise, you can use Mac's default image viewer to export PDF documents to various image formats.
