Alright. So you have a PDF that is packed to the brim with dozens and dozens of pages. Do you want to create a PDF that only has one of these pages? Maybe a few at the most. Obviously, you aren’t going to be doing this with your typical PDF reader, so how do you save certain pages of a PDF? Well, surprisingly, it isn’t actually that difficult. You just need access to an awesome piece of software called PDFelement. Let us run you through the process.
Step 1. Get PDFelement
If you want to learn how to save just one page of a PDF (or multiple pages) with PDFelement, then you will need to start by downloading the software. This shouldn’t take too long. Once you have it downloaded and installed, boot it up so you can move onto the next step.
It is important to note that PDFelement can do so much more than just save one page of a PDF. It is a complete PDF-editing suite, so if you find yourself regularly editing PDF files (or have a need to edit them but do not know how), then getting PDFelement into your tool kit could be one of the best decisions you make.
Step 2. Load up the file in PDFelement
Once PDFelement is up and running, it is time to boot up the file you are planning to extract pages from.
At the top of PDFelement, click the link that says ‘File‘, now select ‘Open‘. Browse to the location on your computer where the file is located and open it up. Since PDFelement runs on both Mac and Windows, the process will be different depending on your operating system. However, it will be the same process as whenever you have opened up a file in any program before. So, it should be fairly intuitive.
Step 3. Extracting the pages of a PDF
Once your document has been loaded up, you can get to work on extracting the pages.
To do this, hit the ‘Extract‘ button at the top of the ‘Page‘.
You will then be taken to a new screen where you can extract the exact pages that you want. We are going to detail how you can extract individual pages, and specific page ranges.
Step 4. Check your files
Once you are done with your extractions, check the locations where you have saved the files. Make sure that you have extracted everything that you need to. It is always good to ‘double-check’ when you have done something like this. Mistakes can be made.
