I want to convert word .docx files containing images text to pure images and then converter that images to PDF files.

Best way i found is send word files to one note, then save one note file as .docx and finally converter this file in PDF.

But any other more convenient way for this?

Thanks in advance for your answers!

Which OS? Apple has this functionality built into their print screen (I think bottom left corner). On windows, I would look up Bullzip. Again, it's accessed through the print menu. –  nerdwaller Apr 3 '13 at 6:38

Why first convert it to an image, why not print it to a 'PDF printer'? There are several of those available for free. (Where 'free' means 'free, but do remove the tick when they ask to install additonal toolsbars'.) –  Hennes Apr 3 '13 at 7:52
@Hennes: My guess is he's trying hard to ensure the text is not editable, and directly printing to PDF would defeat his aim (any PDF editing restrictions can be easily removed). –  Karan Apr 3 '13 at 13:08
In that case he might need to look up OCR software. It is getting surprisingly good at recognising 'printed text images'. –  Hennes Apr 3 '13 at 20:35

How about Windows' Snipping Tool? It can capture portions of the screen and save in many formats. Another program called Snagit does the same – but I believe it can save directly to a PDF.
