Linux – Convert PDF to TIF



Recently I had a request for help with some free pdf’s I’ve published elsewhere. I wasn’t really keen to spend a lot of time for free supporting free pdfs and really just wanted to give an alternative file format. (I suspected the pdf format may not have been one that their computer liked. So, I wanted to convert to a tif image as that’s something that should be universally usable. Some quick websearching reminded me that in linux it’s a very simple conversion. In fact, the command line program convert is all you need.

It was as easy as $convert filename.pdf filename.tif

wow…
