Tutorial- Converting PDF to JPEG for tracing in SIlhouette Studio Software

To convert a pdf file to jpeg is quite simple and very quick to use.

Firstly I need you to open up your pdf file, I use adobe and this tutorial is based around Adobe.

So once you have your file open, go to Edit and look down the menu until you see the camera icon,take a snapshot. Click onto this so you get the tick your mouse icon will change to a target icon, click anywhere onto your pdf file and it will go blue, a window will pop up that says the selected area has been copied, click ok.

Next open up Paint which comes with all windows systems and is located under accessories, once you have paint open, click edit and then paste, your file will appear onto your Paint screen!!!

All you have to do now is save it as a jpeg and there you have your jpeg file already to go into Silhouette Studio to be traced!


I have used adobe and paint programmes as these are on most peoples computers already.

Good luck and any problems then please dont' hesitate to contact me.
