PDF into Lightroom?

Hi - I am making a photo album for my recently-married daughter and her husband, containing the wedding photos I took of the whole weekend in Seattle where they were married. I want to include the invitation. This morning, I blindly scanned it, creating a PDF, and incorrectly assumed I could suck it into LR. Not.

Anyone have a way to do this? I want to make a jpeg, and use it on an album page.

Thanks for any help you can offer - Dave

    If you have Photoshop, you can open a PDF file in there, then save as jpeg.

    When you scanned it, did you not have the choice of saving as jpeg first up, surely?

  • Hi, Trev - I will try that tomorrow. Not sure if the scanner at work has the option jpeg. Also, I don't have PS.
  • Hi, Trev - did it with an on-line freebie program. But, I will check out our scanner for a JPG option.

    You should have, unless it's an old one, all scanners these days it's almost automatic to save as jpeg or PDF.

    If you have an all-in-one  Printer/Scanner/Copier machine you most certainly will have that option.
