PDF's to JPG's exported files have different sizes

Recommended Posts

If I have 10 PDF's of same height and width and I export them to JPG's, all exported JPG files will have different file size.

If the PDF's size are same then why should the JPG's file size differ?

I don't know what is on each of your exported files, but if the information is different for each jpg, then the files will contain different amounts of data and therefore the file sizes will vary.

JPG is an image, PDF is a mixed media document.  Each file type stores information and compresses it differently.

Probably the main thing is a PDF can store actual vector data and text data, which saves space and reproduces cleaner.

A JPG is just going to store that same information as pixels, it’s a picture after all.
