Common Issues on Using Adobe to Convert PDF to TIFF

As reliable as it is, converting PDF to JPG in Adobe Acrobat can have a few issues. To begin with, the process is not as straightforward as it is with iSkysoft PDF Editor Pro 6. But the following are just some of the most common problems you'll experience and how to fix them.

1. You'll Have Trouble Converting Multiple Pages

It is perhaps the biggest problem when converting PDF to TIFF using Adobe Acrobat; you will not be able to convert all pages in the PDF into a multipage TIFF file. This means that each page will be converted into an individual TIFF file. This is OK if you have a PDF with a single page but when the PDF you are converting has multiple pages, you will need to make use of another program to combine the individual TIFFs into one.

2. Converted File May Get Large

Another problem most people face when converting PDF to TIFF using Adobe Acrobat is the expanded file size of the resultant document. Depending on the source of the file, it is likely that the TIFF will be from 2 to 100 times larger than the original PDF file.
If that happens, there is very little you can do about it. Choosing another PDF program to make the conversion may be your only solution although you can also use a third party tool to compress the converted TIFF file into the desired size.

3. You May Be Unable to Convert the PDF

Although it doesn't happen very often, there are times when you may be unable to convert the PDF file to TIFF. When this happens, it is often a technical problem either with your computer of Adobe Acrobat itself. The following are just some of the troubleshooting solutions you can try:

  • Try updating Adobe Acrobat. If you don't see a "Update" option anywhere, uninstall the program and then reinstall it.
  • You may also want to update the computer's operating system for both Windows and Mac.
  • If you are using Windows OS, and are unable to install the latest version of Adobe, you may want to disable the antivirus before trying to download the program.

4. The Format Changes During Conversion

If the formatting on the PDF is altered during conversion, please note that this is rare with Adobe Acrobat but it does happen. Simply trying again can work. But if the format is not like you'd want it to be, the best solution would be to use another program to convert the PDF to TIFF.
