Can anyone help me insert a PDF into a blog post so it's visible as an image? (wordpress. self-hosted)
you'll probably have to use a plugin like Google Doc Embedder if you don't want to take a screen shot.
depends on how big you want it. if it's just a link to the PDF, you could do a screenshot of the open PDF.
Try this: Open the PDF and choose File->Export->Image->jpeg. Then you can upload the jpeg file as a photo on your blog.
DirtySuds - Embed PDF is a great plugin for that.
U got an answer yet? It can be done but doesn't work REALLY well. I'll have to dig a little because I've forgotten the trick

can you just resave as a jpeg?
export from Preview on your Mac to a png or jpg.
You could take a screen shot of the PDF, then insert into the blog as a jpeg.
You just upload it to your media folder like a photo and then insert that url into your post
You could do a screen grab of it and save it as a JPG and then you'll be able to insert it.
oh p.s on a MAC screen grab is Command+Shift+4

You have to convert the PDF to a JPEG. The easiest way is if you have Paint. Cut and paste into Paint.
the only way u can have a pdf show like an image is if u use an iframe, or if you turn the pdf into a actual jpg or png image
Unless you have embedded links or it's a form, it might be easiest to just take a screen-shot of it and upload it that way =)
On Mac: CMD-Shift-4, select the area you want, & presto! an image is saved on your desktop. On a PC: Alt-Prt Scrn, then paste.
use Adobe Acrobat to turn PDF into a jpeg picture file. Only way I know.
