Should you export PDFs to JPG or PNG files?

PNG files tend to have better quality compared to JPG files, so if your PDF files have a lot of text content, converting the PDF file to PNG image is the best option to preserve the quality of the PDF file.

However, owing to the better image quality, the size of PNG files also tends to be higher than JPG files, so if you’re trying to crunch that, stick to JPGs.

Remember, you can also convert a JPG or PNG image to PDF with PDF Expert.
