    After you select the target format (PS) a new window will appear. Set up the path for the file location - the folder to place the output file to. There are two ways to set up the path:

    • Type in the destination.
    • Press 'Diskette' button and select the file from your file tree.

    If you want to change the path back to the original one press 'Full stop' button. By default Total PDF Converter puts the final PS document to the same folder where the source PDF file is.


  4. Click 'Next' on the bottom of the window or select 'Image DPI' on the left-hand side of the window. Select quality of the produced image. The better quality results into a larger file. You may also select Page size of the output jpeg image.


  5. Click 'Next' on the bottom of the window or select 'File name template' on the left-hand side of the window. Enter the template to create file names for every page. The # sign will be replaced by page number.


  6. Press 'Start conversion'. The application will show you all the parameters you have already customized. You may choose 'Delete originals' and 'Open destination folder after converting' if needed. Press 'Start!'.


  7. In that case if you have checked 'Open destination folder after converting' parameter after pressing 'Start!' the program will open the folder where the file was located.

  8. The destination folder will be open. Find the converted PS files in it.
