Automator for MacOS tutorial : convert a PDF to set of images

3 years ago

Automator is an in-built application for MacOS (a.k.a OS X) that lets you automate any system operation by dragging and dropping a sequence of blocks (that serves to offer one functionality each) and then exporting it as an executable, so that the next time you want a task that takes a long for you to perform manually, happens with only a single click. In this tutorial we’ll be learning how to create a PDF to images converter which basically takes in your PDF files, converts them into a series of images, compresses them, arranges them in an order, and exports them all into a single folder. Basically to do this manually, using Preview you’ll have to save each page of a PDF document and then rename them but with this method, you can save hours of your time, doing just what you wanted to after conversting them.
