You’re probably in one of the following situations:

  • You have a PDF File with “messy” pages;
  • You wish to organize the pages in new, different documents.

There are multiple different reasons to extract pages from a PDF document, and no matter which one’s yours, we’re here to help you.

Let’s dive into the PDF page extracting process.

Can you extract PDF pages?

Yes, you can extract PDF pages online, without having to pay for Adobe Acrobat. Open our PDF editor on this page and tell our system which pages you want to extract from the main PDF, then apply changes and download your new PDFs.

You can extract as many PDF pages as you want from a document, and you can split them into new files that contain only the right files.

How to extract pages from a PDF for free

  1. Upload your PDF document
  2. Select “I want multiple PDF files at the end”
  3. Select “Extract pages in separate files”
  4. Click the divider line between pages, so as to divide the pages as you wish
  5. Click the blue button “Apply changes”

To extract PDF pages, you need to do upload the document, tick the box saying that you want multiple PDF files and highlight the pages to extract.

Now, let’s take it step by step. First, upload your PDF.

Extracting pages in separate files, in the PDF Splitter

The image above shows what you see after uploading a PDF. Hence, the next steps are to:

  1. Select “I want multiple PDF files at the end”
  2. Select “Extract pages in separate files”

After that, you want to click the dividing line between the pages so as to tell our system which pages you want to extract.

Remember to also click the blue button saying “Apply changes”.

Selecting where to split PDF files

Wait a few seconds ⏲️.

Once our system finished the job, you can click the button to download the new documents with extracted pages.

Extract PDF pages in bulk

To extract PDF pages in bulk or all pages from a file for free, upload the document and select “I want multiple PDF files at the end”, and choose “Select all” to have individual files for each page of the document you’ve uploaded.

Our PDF extracting tool system will turn the pages you’ve selected into new, separate PDF documents.

What happens to my PDF?

After uploading your document, our PDF splitter creates new documents based on how many new files you want to create.

At SignHouse, we respect your privacy, and here’s what happens:

  • Few hours after uploading your file (at most), our system will delete it
  • The new documents can be seen in your dashboard, where you can edit, share, privately-share, or delete them.

Based on your preferences, you’ve got full control!

On that very page, you can:

  3. Click “Apply changes” → Download the file!

It takes a few seconds and only a few clicks.

Adobe, on the other hand, requires a download plus a few minutes.
