For that sort of thing, I've found that screen capturing the
appropriate works better than trying to convert... But it's been ages
since I did this. I suspect if I were to do it now, I'd use the very
nice "preview" program that comes with Mac OS X, since it seems to do
quite a nice job of converting pdfs to images with minimal ickyness.
