I want to convert a PDF document that spans multiple pages to 1 JPG per page.

How can I do that?

Assuming that imagemagick is installed:

convert -quality 100 -density 600x600 multipage.pdf single%d.jpg
  • The -density option defines the quality the pdf is rendered before the convert > here 600dpi. For high quality prints you can increase that number.
  • The %d just before the jpg suffix is for automatic numbering of the output pages 0,1,2...
  • The -quality option defines the compression quality of the output jpg (0 min ... 100 max)
  • The .jpg suffix defines the output format. You could use .png/.jpg/.pdf
