Several Ways to Extract Logo From PDF Document


The easiest way to extract logo from PDF is by using the Free Adobe Reader DC. The Reader is a good solution when it comes to the extraction of a few images. Also, this is absolutely free. You should definitely give a try to this PDF viewer application.

  • Right-click on the PDF file and click ‘Select Tool’ from the given menu.
  • Click to select the logo image in your PDF document.
  • Lastly, right-click on the selected logo image and choose Copy. You can find this Logo image in your clipboard.

You Can Do This Also: Use the Snapshot tool.

  • Choose the Edit option then, click on the ‘Take A Snapshot’.
  • With the mouse draw a rectangle around the logo image that you want and then free the mouse button.
  • Lastly, press on the Esc key to end Snapshot mode. You can find this Logo image in your clipboard.

This is the easiest way but I can’t really say about the quality of the images. If you take screenshots, this will definitely distort the quality of the images. If you have multiple PDF files, then taking screenshots will be a long process.

Extract Logo Images From PDF Using Adobe Illustrator

This method can be used by Adobe Illustrator users because it is quite an easy method:

1) Open your PDF document in Illustrator and choose the page that is having the logo.
2) Open the Wireframe view by clicking Cmd+y.
3) With the help of the Direct Selection tool (white arrow), select and delete everything except the logo image.

You will get your logo image.

Using The Adobe Acrobat PRO Application

You should use this method only if you already have Acrobat Pro installed in your system. This is quite an expensive application especially when you just want to extract images.

  • Open the PDF file using Acrobat and go to View >> Tools >> Document Processing.
  • On the right side menu of the panel select ‘Export All Images’
  • A dialogue box will pop up, which lets you decide the location of pictures saved.
  • Click on Settings to set the specifications of the export images like the quality of the images and color management.
  • After setting all the desired options, click OK. Then you will get back to the previous window and there you have to click on Save. The logo image from the PDF will be extracted and exported to the folder, you’ve selected.
