Taking text, &, or pics out of a pdf file?

shaddy101January 28, 2014

I want to take a couple pdf's apart and use some of the text, and pics within. Is there a simple, and I mean simple way to do this, or are they "locked" in there never to be removed? I am working with pdfs that are made and sent by others, not those I make up myself. I think I can do those with no problem.
Thanks for any info

If you can create a PDF file then use the same program to open this one.

Most of us have just the simple PDF reader as we do not need to create PDF files.

If you cannot open it then the pictures can be had by taking a screen shot and editing it in your photo editing program. Place the photo where it is fully visible then tap the 'Print Scrn' or 'PRN SCRN' key next to your F12 button. Open your photo editor, right click in the work space then click Paste in the pop up. Crop to your liking and name it.

Oh owbist, I never thought of that, I am not into some of the programs I even have on the machine, but have used Paint, and print screen many times, just need to review I guess. Thanks a heap, good thinking, and much appreciated. Gonna give it a shot.
