    Open the file in Adobe Reader.
    Click the Selection tool on the toolbar.
    Click on the picture to select it.
    Press Ctrl+C to copy it to the clipboard.
    Open any graphics editor, for example Paint.
    Paste the picture.
    Save as a .jpg file.

    Just to add another "trick" to the standard method that Hans showed you! I've sometimes used Print Screen while the graphic I want is showing. Then, when I open Paint Shop Pro and paste that clipboard entry, I get a much larger image than what may have been embedded in the pdf file. Mind you, the clarity may be less than desirable, but it is another method you can resort to, if needed.

    If you have a scanner, most newer OCR programs can read and OCR any unprotected PDF file.
    Another trick, is to print out the PDF file and then scan it.
    Or capture each page as an image and the OCR program should be able to read the image and OCR it.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.
