Convert PDF to JPEG

Quick way to convert a PDF file to JPEG (must have ImageMagick installed):

convert -density 300 scan.pdf scan.jpg

Converting multi-page PDF is similar, you only add %d place holder for number of image in the series, e.g.:

convert -quality 75 -density 300x300 scan.pdf page%d.jpg

Batch convert multiple PDFs (the file names may not contain spaces):

for i in `ls *.pdf`; do convert -density 300 "$i" "$i".jpg; done
